Top 5 Best Curses in Cult of the Lamb

Cult of the Lamb has you start with 10 different curse powers. To unlock more, you need to spend skill points to upgrade the cult leader. As you upgrade the leader, new curses will unlock. So if you don’t have a curse you want, chances are, you need to upgrade the leader more to unlock it.

Since Cult of the Lamb features so many curse abilities, it is expected that some would be better than others. But some very powerful curses stand out from the rest. Here are the top 5 best curses you can use in Cult of the Lamb:

5. Death’s Attendant

Death’s Attendant is a very versatile curse to have. It does a melee attack which, if hit, deals a lot of damage. And on top of that, it summons some ghosts that target enemies. The ghosts are still summoned even if you don’t hit anyone. So you can use it as a melee or ranged ability.

4. Hounds of Fate

Hound of Fate fires some homing projectiles. That means the attack will never miss. It is a great ranged ability to use in normal combat or in the boss fight. Since it is a homing ability, you can always be sure to get some damage out of the ability, especially in the boss fights.

3. Path of the Righteous

Path of the Righteous shoots a projectile that spreads Ichor. The Ichor deals a decent amount of damage. It is a great ability to use if you are fighting a lot of enemies at once or slow-moving enemies. Being inside the ichor field means the enemies will take a lot more damage. But there is some skill involved in using this curse.

2. Maelstrom

Why summon one tentacle when you can summon four at once? That’s right; this ability summons four tentacles in four directions creating a + shape. The ability deals a lot of damage too.

The “+” shape covers a lot of areas. And the damage is good for taking out larger or boss-type enemies. So it is a great ability to have for any kind of encounter.

1. Divine Guardian

Divine Guardian might be the most broken curse ability in Cult of the Lamb. It grants the player invisibility for 2 seconds. You can use this time to heal up or deal with damage yourself without worrying about taking any damage. Another use case would be avoiding heavy-hitting attacks from the bosses.

While using this ability, any projectile that hits will reflect back to the enemies and hit them. So this is a broken ability to use. A well-timed use of the skill can save your whole run or turn the tide of the battle in your favor.
