Default Epidemic - Broken?

I recently came back to play with my old, old Guild Wars account and after playing as a new Mesmer I decided to simply start playing my really old one.

I was looking through all his skills and I decided on a build focusing around Fragility and Epidemic.

The idea was sound, but...

Does Epidemic not work? I have cast it on enemies I've hexed with other enemies less than 5 feet away and they have definitely not received the same hexes.

I'm not sure if I'm misunderstanding something or if I'm doing something wrong.

It said that it spread 'Negative Conditions', a term which I don't recall having seen before so I figured that hexes (which would logically fall under the term 'Negative Conditions') counted. : /

Now that I know hexes don't I have nearly no idea what would...

Good to know, thank you.

Unfortunately pretty much all the conditions I can apply are defaultly applied via AoE so the skill has no use to me! Yay, waste.

Nah, you can play fun builds with it. I played a Nekro with Epidemic a while ago. I used Fragility, Weaken Armor and Virulence to combo with Epidemic. And while the build was certainly not a meta option it was still fun as hell.
