Legend lore

Spell level: bard 4; sorcerer/wizard 6; cleric with knowledge domain 6

Innate level: 6 5
School: divination
Components: verbal, somatic
Range: personal
Area of effect: caster
Duration: 1 turn / level
Save: harmless
Spell resistance: no

Description: This spell grants the caster a +10 bonus to lore checks, +1 per 2 caster levels.


  • The bonus from this spell is always less than the bonus from identify, despite being a much higher level spell. (For example, at caster level 40 identify gives +50 to lore checks while legend lore only gives +30.) The advantage of legend lore is its long duration, which can be important when pausing the game isn't an option (as is the case in many multiplayer games) and when lore checks are made in the middle of dialog.
  • The in-game description incorrectly reports the innate level of this spell as 6.
