Dark Souls 3 is a 2016 action role-playing video game developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. In Dark Souls 3, as in previous games in the series, players battle against fearsome enemies using weapons, armor pieces and magic while progressing through the dark fantasy setting inspired by medieval Europe.
Curse in Dark Souls 3 is a debuff which reduces the player’s health by 50%. It can be healed only by using certain items or by resting at bonfires. When characters are cursed, there will be an icon of a peeling mask (similar to that of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask) on the bottom left corner of the screen. This curse is supposed to be a downside of using dark magic or consorting with evil beings, although later in the game it becomes a relatively minor menace, since there are many ways to cure it.
NPCs cursed by the Aldrich Faithful covenant can only be cured through death and renewal at a bonfire. In case you have contracted a curse as a phantom, contracting it as a host again will also cure the effect. Consume the Crushed Eye Orb from Saint Aldrich’s inventory and kill him to lift the curse. This can be done an unlimited number of times by dropping the eye into his boss’ arena at any time after you join the covenant.
What is Curse Dark Souls 3?
Curse Dark Souls 3 is a status effect in Dark Souls III. It is caused by certain actions the player may take, either by being cursed by an item, or through use of the Crushed Eye Orb. Any action that would normally cause the Bleed effect now causes Curse instead. It cannot be cured with Purple Moss Clumps, only with the use of a Purging Stone. Curse reduces maximum health by 50%, and can stack up to two times, for a total reduction of 100% (although it is possible to remove a single Curse, preventing a second from being applied).

How to Remove Curse in Dark Souls 3: Secret Way To Remove Curse
There is a secret, undocumented way to remove curse or at least one level of it for free by using the Purging Stone while afflicted with Poison. This will trigger a special animation where the player character throws up, similar to the animation triggered by consuming Undead Bone Shards. This will remove one level of curse even if the player has two levels, allowing them to temporarily ignore its effects.
