This spell allows you to remove the "cursed" BUC status of an item, taking damage in the process. You take 20 HP damage per curse absorbed.
Learned from: Book of Absorb curse
WARNING: Do not absorbe curse when exposed and in need to rest. The casting of this spell absorbs 1 - 3 curses at the same time, so you might take a rather large hit to your hitpoints.
Successfully casting this spell when the castor has no cursed items will not cause the castor to lose hit points. However, the skill of death magic will still be improved. Since the mana cost of this spell is low, it can be used to practice death magic.
