  • The spell works by boosting the target's reaction modifier by +30 while the spell is maintained.
  • If the spell is resisted then the target's reaction modifier is reduced by -30 permanently


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