Bigby's clenched fist

Spell level: sorcerer/wizard 8

Innate level: 8
School: evocation
Components: verbal, somatic
Range: long (40 meters)
Area of effect: single
Duration: 1 round / level
Save: fortitude

Description: A giant hand appears and attacks the target, once each round for the duration of the spell. Each hit causes 1d8+11 points of bludgeoning damage to the target and if they fail their saving throw they are stunned for that round as well.


  • Added in the expansion packs.
  • The spell hits upon a successful check: d20 + caster ability modifier + caster level + 10 vs. armor class.
  • For this check, casters with wizard levels use their intelligence modifier, and all other casters use charisma.
  • While the bonus to saves from spellcraft usually does not apply to spells with a duration, it does apply to (only) the first save rolled against this spell (as that occurs as the spell is cast, rather than after a delay).
