Full description: Entangled creatures are unable to move and are considered flatfooted. Entangled creatures receive a -2 penalty on all attack rolls and sets their dexterity to 3. An entangled character who attempts to cast a spell or make use of a spell-like ability must make a concentration check (DC 15) or the attempt will fail. They also suffer a 50% penalty to movement speed. Multiple castings of entangle will stack.


  • Creatures with woodland stride are immune to this spell,
  • Due to a bug, incorporeal creatures are not. This is fixed in 1.69 and later versions.
  • Due to a bug, the dexterity of victims is sometimes permanently changed to 3. A fix is available at the vault
