Tips and Details

  • There is no limit to how many explosions will occur.
  • The Curse of Agony takes about 3 seconds to explode and will inflict splash damage to nearby enemies as well.
  • After the skill, Chung will be exhausted for about 2 seconds, though he is still invincible during this time.
  • In certain circumstances, the Curse of Agony may cause enemy models to fade away and go invisible until the explosion occurs, most notably on the Remnant of Crimson Calamity bosses in Crimson Tower of Howling Flames.


  • Although the skill is called "Pain of Caladbolg", the ingame dub was changed to Calabolg Pain.
  • "Caladbolg" ("hard cleft"), sometimes written Caladcholg ("hard blade"), is the sword of Fergus mac Róich from the Ulster Cycle of Irish mythology. It was sometimes used in plural to mean "great swords", and might also refer to Excalibur. It appears in Welsh mythology.
    • It was said to be a two-handed sword that made a circle like an arc of rainbow when swung and to have the power to slice the tops off hills and slaughter an entire host.
