Touch Of The Revenant

touch of the revenant – cult of the lamb best curses
Type Tentacles
Description It keeps your base safe from the enemies, and strike the ghost enemies in the vicinity

An Interesting Read: BEST Cult of the Lamb Doctrines

Touch of the Revenant is a curse that, like Death’s Attendant, involves a number of ghostly companions who are experiencing an awful existence in the underworld. The spell must be performed in a line in order to create a ground rift that would call forth a number of spirits that will engage in combat with adjacent foes.

The ghosts have a restricted range, which means that it won’t be possible to capture an adversary that is located on the other side of the map from where they begin the level. You should aim to call the apparitions in a location that is somewhat near to your desired target since they have difficulty following enemies who move quickly.

Flaming Shot

Flaming Shot – cult of the lamb best curses
Type Fireballs
Description You can hurl a ball of fire at the enemy and wait till the charge build-up, then release it for the massive explosion

Consider Reading: BEST Cult Of The Lamb Traits

As the title of the curse entails, your lamb will be able to hurl a ball of fire at the target when the action is triggered. However, you can take the overall damage of the Flaming Shot curse up a notch if you hold the fire button, let the charge build-up, and then release the button.

We recommend not to sleep on this curse if you are having a hard time defeating enemies on bosses, then unleash minions. Try the Flaming Shot, and you will find it is worth your time. 

Hounds Of Fate

Type Fireballs
Description Shoot as many projectiles as you can to eliminate the enemies. Also helps you fight the bosses from a fair distance

The Hounds of Fate is a curse that gives you the ability to swarm the target with projectiles and do significant damage. The hex is most effective when used at a great distance. Unfortunately, the only thing that can stop your Hounds of Fate spells from taking effect is debris.

Prior to actually casting the curse, you should check to see that the room in the middle doesn’t have a lot of debris in it since the projectiles may be blocked by destructible objects. As long as your ranges of vision are unobstructed, using Hounds of Fate is a good use of your Fervor.

Divine Blizzard

Type Blasts
Description Has the ability to strike back and freeze the enemies which result in mobility slowdown

If you are surrounded by opponents, use the Divine Blizzard magic to deal damage to all of the foes simultaneously and rescue yourself. The target of this spell will not simply take damage, but they will also have their mobility slowed and be thrown away.

Divine Blizzard is the finest option for Curses to use when you are being assaulted by a bigger number of opponents since it does damage to all nearby opponents inside your perimeter. In addition, it causes them to suffer from the Freeze status effect, which slows their mobility.

Path Of The Righteous

Type Splatters
Description A targeted damage spell that can cause damage to your enemies by firing an ichor glob direct to the target

The spell known as Path of the Righteous deals damage to foes along its path by leaving a pool of ichor in its wake. The sender doesn’t take any harm even if they walk across the route.

Path of the Righteous is best utilized as a focused damage cast; strike the strongest adversary in the room with the major blob, and the ichor will capture any other opponents as they walk around the room. Despite the fact that the path of ichor is the dominant component of this curse, Path of the Righteous is best utilized as a targeted damage spell.

Ichor Thrown

Ichor Thrown – cult of the lamb best curses
Type Splatters
Description For destroying the enemy’s health, you need to fire a black ichor in their direction to cause poison status effect

If you have read the list up to this point, then you’d realize that the curses that deal splash damage and status effects are by far the Cult of Lamb best curses in the game. That is why we can’t miss recommending Ichor Thrown curse that basically deals poison damage to targets by inflicting the AoE status effect. 

To storm your enemies with poison damage that depletes their health over time, you will need to hold the aim button and select targets that are grouped together. Then, release the button and see the lamb throwing a black Ichor that, upon landing applies poison status effect to the enemies caught in a small circle. 


Maelstrom – cult of the lamb best curses
Type Tentacles
Description Has the ability to lash out the tentacles in Four different directions for destroying the enemies

The Maelstrom is a devastating spell that allows you to penetrate four tentacles simultaneously, doing damage to numerous foes instantly. In addition, you may make the strike extra specific by using the cursed button to change the direction in which the tendrils extend.

The Touch of Turua is an excellent spell that can be used in a variety of situations; however, there is no use in casting it just once when you could fire it four times again. The Maelstrom has the most comprehensive coverage of any curse in the game due to the fact that it immediately shoots out four spurts of tentacles at right angles.

Cleansing Fire

Type Fireballs
Description It can shoot and strike enemies with three strong projectiles at a time

If you like exploding enemies using the Flaming Shot curse in Cult of the Lamb, then you will definitely love the Cleansing Fire curse. Consider this spell as an upgraded version of the Flaming Shot, as when you press the trigger or action button, and your lamb basically hurls three fire projectiles at once on your selected target or line of sight that you used before firing the curse. 

Once again, the Cleansing Fire curse is excellent for applying for dispersing crowd and dealing damage to more than one target who is in close proximity. 

Death’s Sweep

Type Slashes
Description A dangerous melee attack that is charged for enhanced force and powers for dealing more damage

The Death’s Sweep curse attack is basically a wide melee slash that can be charged to deal even more damage than the base one. The attack does not apply any status effect; however, the overall base or physical damage is excellent, and it can be used to eliminate a bunch of weaker enemies who have very low health. 

Death’s Sweep is also one of the Cult of the lamb’s best curses when you use it against bosses. The quick sweep allows you to get into a boss’s reach, deal damage, and get out of harm’s way. It is an excellent approach should you want to maintain distance from the boss and also attack or deal physical damage to it. 

Divine Guardian

divine guardian- cult of the lamb best curses
Type Blasts
Description A sole protective spell that protects you from the enemy’s attacks, as well as keeps them busy for 2 seconds while you are in your healing process.

Divine Guardian stands out from the other defensive curses in the game due to the fact that it is the only one of its kind. It functions similarly to other flash spells in that it does damage to and fights back opponents that are close to the Lamb. It also has two powerful impacts that cannot be reproduced by any other method, which makes it an amazing weapon to have in any loadout.

The Divine Guardian spell is a devastating curse that will protect you from your foes and stop them from striking for two seconds when you continue to heal yourself.
