My mage has been the victim of the Slasher's mind rot three times in as many days. On one occasion, I played for another hour or so, then recalled home and found a remove curse talisman to get rid of the mind rot. The other two times, I didn't bother to remove it, and just continued to play. The mind rot debuff remained on my character until I logged out hours later, close to server down time; on both occasions, the next day, the debuff was gone. I have 202 mana, 120 med, LMC40 and MR18, so it wasn't a big deal for me. However, while it's a minor annoyance for me, a lot of people will be seriously irritated by this. Is this a bug that will eventually be fixed, or is it an intentional consequence of getting within 2 screens of the Slasher?
