A friend of mine (Aedrin, formally known as Kellar of Midgard. He was once one of the leads of Valor/Virtus, which back in the day was a pretty famous hnm shell) had a very interesting theory on cursna I'd like to put forward. Mind, I haven't had a chance to test this yet; Need someone to be the "idiot" to get cursed, and haven't had a chance to find a friend to play the "idiot" yet. (Sorry, my feelings on someone getting cursed are colored from people getting cursed from taurs while I was doing CoP missions(they were still capped back then); Baka baka if you didn't turn in time then or backtank, tho I know now a days some can't turn in time. Still the "you stupid idiot" feeling remains, tho I do try to get it off.)
He said that one of the top whms of Valor thought it was due to mind. Due to that and what we know, I think the formula is actually:
mnd + healing magic skill + gear + dumb luck = getting curse off.
So I think a good cursna set would combine the first two (three if that cursna enhance ring helps at all) and some fast cast besides because of the "dumb luck" factor. I mean, if it's dumb luck you kinda have to have the fast cast gear. ^^ He does have a lot of mnd gear in his cursna set, and he manages to get it off more often than a whm who doesn't.
