From Diablo 4 Wiki

Reap is a Necromancer skill from the Basic skill tree. Its features are:

Creates Condition Exploits Condition
Shadow Dmg N/A
Dmg Reduction
Attack Speed

'Creates Condition' means this skill creates this condition i.e it could make a target Vulnerable that other skills can take advantage of. 'Exploits Condition' means this skill takes advantage of a condition, not necessarily of its own making. So for example another skill might Stun and this skill could take advantage of that.
