The Plague is an active Mental Skills. It must first be placed on the game's QuickBar before it can be invoked.

Compared to such spells as Blood Vortex, The Plague inflicts more damage at less cost in Mental Energy, and can be cast more frequently (much quicker Cooldown Time), but it does not restore Scarlett's own Health.

Scarlett can only learn this Mental Skill after she has learned its prerequisite, Deadly Attraction; after she has accumulated sufficient Skill Points; and after she finds a Necromancy Trainer (possibly Aeris in the Inner City). Scarlett can increase her Level of Mastery of this skill by spending additional Skill Points with any capable Necromancy Trainer.
