Weakens the constitution of adjacent enemies making them more susceptible to attacks that directly damage their life such as vitality damage and life leeching.

Notes

The resistance reduction being applied is absolute, meaning that it is a flat reduction to enemy resistances that is always applied. This in turn means you can reduce enemy resistances into the negatives and deal bonus Bleeding, Vitality and Life Leech damage.

Unfortunately, this ability will still have no effect on enemies that traditionally ignore these damage types due to stacked Damage Absorption and Resistances, notably, Ghosts, Undead, Devices, and Constructs. The ability seems to still affect bosses albeit with significantly reduced results.*

Since '% Reduction to Enemy HP' is based on Vitality Resistance, the Ravages of Time skill will deal noticeably more damage. Necrosis will also assist your Liche King's damage output as all his skills deal Elemental, Vitality and '% Reduction to Enemy HP'. However, since '% Reduction to Enemy HP' is always based on current HP, not Max HP, Ravages of Time, and Necrosis should not be relied upon as a damage dealing skill and instead be used as a utility based one.

* Prior to the Anniversary Edition this skill would affect the listed enemies and bosses. With the Anniversary Edition the listed enemies gained relevant Damage Absorption instead of solely relying on Resistances.
