Diseased is easily distinguished by the swarm of flies that surround the diseased target. It is a debilitating effect that reduces the ability to take and deal damage:
Diseased aoe
A hero with little life may not be able to restore their health back to full from halved healing effects. And a hero that was once able to deal significant damage with a single ability may not have the ATK to deal enough damage, especially when their CRIT chance is also negated by the disease.

Other enemies with passives like Disease Bane Icon Disease Bane (deals 3x damage towards Diseased targets) capitalize on Diseased effects.

Dark Heroes like Lord Zomm, Life Reaper Brom and Kobal the Pestilent have the ability to inflict disease. In addition, Lord Zomm's Lord of the Undead passive increases damage upon being diseased. Heroes that have the Lifeless passive are immune to Disease, and other Dark heroes are slightly more resistant to Disease.
