Abolish Disease is a spell which instantly removes one disease and then provides a short-lived buff that removes additional diseases over time.


This spell essentially replaces [Cure Disease], as it has the same mana cost while providing an additional benefit. Cure Disease is however still useful in very specific situations when used together with Abolish Disease: if a target is getting affected by diseases faster than Abolish Disease can remove them, a priest can put up Abolish Disease on the target and then repeatedly cast Cure Disease while Abolish Disease is ticking, allowing diseases to be removed much quicker.
