Boil Earth causes the ground beneath the target suddenly becomes molten. There is a chance of doing immediate direct damage to the leg area. This may cause the target to fall and receive a number of more serious injuries. Training in Elemental Lore, Earth provides a chance to hit additional targets, and training in Elemental Lore, Fire strengthens the secondary and tertiary hits.

Although other spells can achieve similar ends, Boil Earth is more difficult to cast because it requires precise control to affect a single selected target instead of the more diffuse targets of area spells which affect friend and foe alike.
