Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Requires Hordes of the Underdark.
  • Due to a bug, immunity to disease does not make one immune to this spell. In fact, if it does not come from a feat (divine health, purity of body, or perfect health), then disease immunity causes the saving throws to be automatically failed.
  • If the difficulty setting is set to "hardcore" or higher, then the round after the target's constitution score reaches 3, the target will be dealt magical damage equal to 1 more than its hit points (in order to kill it).
  • This spell has no effect on a target currently infected with maggots.
