The Sims 4 Realm of Magic: Curses

List of all Curse Types, Curse Effects and How to Cure Them

Potion of Curse Cleansing in The Sims 4 Realm of Magic
Brewing a Potion of Curse Cleansing is ONE way to remove curses. I suggest you have your Sim focus on Untameable magic if you want to cure curses easily. If you ensure you know all Untameable spells at Master rank, it'll be the first spell you learn from that school.

If your Sim fails to do certain activities enough, or just has some really bad luck, they can get a Curse. There are a total of nine unique curses in The Sims 4 Realm of Magic. While some are worse than others, in general Curses are to be avoided and will not wear off - ever - once they are applied to your Sim.

How to Remove Curses

Experiment on the Cauldron to unlock new potion recipes.. you'll also get a free sample.
Using the Experiment interaction with a Cauldron will have your Sim unlocking new potion recipes. You'll get a free sample when you do. Now, very carefully cast the Copypasto spell at low to no charge on that sample while your Sim is in a good mood, bam. No more need for Citrine, Angelfish, etc. in order to make a Potion of Curse Cleansing. Copy your copies, then forget the curse system even exists. Sigh.

Once a Curse is applied, it won't wear off. You'll need to do one of two things to get rid of it. Have your Sim cast Decursify (or have a family member/Sim you control remove the curse this way). Decursify is a Master-rank spell in the Untamed branch, so you can get it once you've hit that rank. There is also a Potion of Curse Cleansing that can be learned at level 3, but it requires you to have an Apple, Citrine (crystal), Angelfish, and Mandrake on hand. All of these are available in the Realm of Magic, so it's not too hard to come up with them. Of course, you can also buy potion of Curse Cleansing from the potion shop sometimes. Check back daily for new wares.

Cheats to Remove Curses

For storytelling purposes, it may be desirable to use Trait.Equip_Trait to put a curse onto a Sim, or maybe you don't have the cure and despise the curse you already have. You can remove curses from your Spellcaster with Traits.Remove_Trait. Here's a list of all the Curses your Sim can get:

  • Curse of Awkward Embraces - Trait_Curses_TouchyFeely
  • Curse of Infectious Laughter - Trait_Curses_InfectiousLaughter
  • Curse of Repulsiveness - Trait_Curses_Repulsiveness
  • Curse of Scrambled Spells - Trait_Curses_WildMagic
  • Curse of The Night Wraith - Trait_Curses_NightStalker
  • Curse of Uncleansable Stench - Trait_Curses_SweatyStench
  • Curse of Uncontrollable Charge - Trait_Curses_FountainOfMagic
  • Curse of Unwarranted Hostility - Trait_Curses_PunchableFace
  • Hex of the Duelist - Trait_Curses_HexOfDuelist

So does anything happen if the spectral wraith catches you? My sim had the curse, but she also has a CC Immortal trait, so even if it kills you when it catches you it wouldn't have hurt her. She used her long sleepless night to experiment til she learned the Potion of Curse Cleansing.


Not as far as I can tell, it's simply a ghost that haunts your sim.


Hi carl! Can u make a video featuring all these curses? It sound very interesting but i dont wanna risk my sim to die from overcharge

Brian Zsays...

onlyabidoang on YouTube made a video about RoM, he shows some of the curses. A lot of them there's not much to see until its effect happens- for example, I had a sim get Curse of Unwarranted Hostility. Sims would fist fight her out of nowhere for no reason. Until someone attacks, there isn't a visual or anything. Thing is, I picked Nikita to check out RoM because she was a well established sim already, and single. One thing she had already done was finish the Athletic aspiration, so her attackers were in for a nasty surprise. That petite little blonde can take care of herself!


I don't know if it had anything to do with the curses or it was a random bug, but when I used the transportalate spell to get to the magical realm my sim turned to a tragic clown. When she changed her clothes it is gone though. I wonder if it is happened with others too.


It's something that can occur when the transport spell fails and yeah, looks like it is simply an outfit generated spell failure result.


Hey, please help me out - I have the Awkward Embraces curse and I’ve typed “Traits.Remove_Trait” countless times and it won’t go away. Testingcheats are on.


So the full cheat you need to use is:

Traits.Remove_Trait Trait_Curses_TouchyFeely


Excellent. Thank you!


Something I thought I could add. Some curses might have interesting- or unintendedly-helpful effects. My Sim got the Scrambled Spells curse and any broken appliance in the game, when tried to Repairio on them, turned out to be the Copypasto spell.

So get an expensive TV, break it, then try to "repair" it over and over. Not sure if the scrambling is random, but if it isn't this might be an interesting way to get money.


The cheats don't even work I tried it many times


Just tested them again in my game and they are all working correctly. Not sure what you may be doing wrong as you don't go into detail in your comment.
