Body of Water is the fourth spell in the college of Water


  • This spell transforms the body of a target into Water and liquid, making the target slow, but resistant to attack.
  • When cast on a target, all equipped items are moved into the target's inventory (or dropped to the ground if inventory becomes full).


  • The player or their followers lose all bonuses from formally equipped items.

  • For NPC targets:
    • Unequipping includes "hidden" items that sometimes are not normally shown in an NPC's body or inventory screen.
    • Thus it makes pickpocketing possible for hidden items.
    • It also makes pickpocketing easier for other items that were previously equipped.
    • Casting this spell on an NPC will not cause them to become hostile.
  • For the player and party members:
    • The target receives -5 speed, DR is set to 95, PR to 30, and ER to 90
    • Thus the target becomes more difficult to hit and much more difficult to injure.


  • Passing the Mastery Test of Master of Water in Tulla will reduce the casting and maintenance cost by half.
