Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The caster must make a successful melee touch attack on the target.
    • The touch attack occurs after the spell resistance check, which might consume spell mantles needlessly.
  • The save is versus death, but neither descriptor provides immunity to this spell as a whole. Immunity to death magic applies if the save is failed, while immunity to negative energy damage applies if the save succeeds. Perhaps unintentionally, death-immune targets are better off failing the save.
