Curse of Overheating

Curse of Overheating
Name Curse of Overheating
Source Mod Witchery
Type Spell

The Curse of Overheating is a spell added by the Witchery mod. It is one of Witchery's curses that will randomly cause random spontaneous combustion when the victim is in hot biomes.

The curse can be negated with a Voodoo Protection Poppet and that can be negated by having a cat familiar which can be negated by having a second Voodoo Protection Poppet but having a full set of Witch Hunter armor will give a ninety percent chance of protecting the victim.

The curse can only be removed with a Rite of Remove Curse but failed attempts to remove will make the curse one level stronger. The level of the curse itself is dependent on the skill of the witch casting the spell but is also buffed up by one by having a cat familiar and it is buffed up by one more for every two witches in the witch's coven.

  • Taglock kit must be bound.
  • This spell only works during a storm.


This is probably one of the most sneaky curses to afflict someone with because of how it randomly affects the victim and how it only affects them in specific biomes. If this is done on a server with multiple mods on it they could have a hard time tracking down why they keep spontaneously combusting.
