Hardened Hands is the first spell in the college of Morph

  • Unlike the first level elemental spells, Hardened Hands does not stack with itself.

Additional Sources[]

  • This spell can only be learned, as there are no scrolls or items from which it can be cast.


  • While an attacker must be "weaponless", they still can use a shield.
  • They can also use gauntlets, in which case the damage totals stack.
  • This spell also works on Dog/Worthless Mutt
  • The damage bonus is not visible on the character planner, but it can be seen as increased damage on the verbose floater display.
