The target's attack speed is also slowed by half the amount, initially slowed by 17.5% and increasing to 23.5 / 29.5 / 35.5 / 41.5 / 47.5 % over the duration.

Enemies caught in the area when the desecration occurs are dealt an initial burst of 55 / 95 / 135 / 175 / 215 (+60% of ability power) magic damage. Additionally, enemies in the area are dealt 11 / 19 / 27 / 35 / 43 (+12% of ability power) magic damage each second and have their armor reduced by 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 / 45% while in the area and for 1 extra second.

While Nasus is empowered, he deals 3 / 4 / 5% (+1% per 100 ability power) of target's maximum health magic damage to nearby enemies each second, capped at 240 per second, and Siphoning Strike's cooldown is halved.
