Disarm is a utility spell that allows the caster to attempt to disarm containers. This spell can also be used to attempt to disarm typical doors. When the spell is successful, the trap on the container or door being targeted will be disarmed.
This spell can potentially set off the trap that is on the target object if the spell fails, but will not necessarily do so. In order to make this spell more effective, the caster can also use the spell Disarm Enhancement (404). However, the duration of Disarm Enhancement immediately ends after each use of Disarm, regardless of success.
On a successful cast on a trap will result in a positive message that the trap has been disarmed. If cast on an object with no trap, there will be no message that indicates if there is a trap or if the spell simply failed. Because there is no particular messaging for locks without traps, this spell is typically combined with Piercing Gaze in order to first determine if the lock is trapped or not. Also be aware that successfully disarming a scarab that is still in a lock will not cause it to fall to the ground, thus it cannot be sold. The spell can be used on scarabs that have been removed from a box, but will result in a much lesser value than a scarab that has been manually disarmed.
Training in Elemental Lore, Water will corrode a trap on unsuccessful casts. Each corrosion of the trap will subtract from the trap's difficulty based on a seed 1 summation of ranks up to a total reduction of 10% of the trap difficulty. The effect lasts 60 seconds and is refreshed on successive casts, while the corrosion is cumulative upon each cast (up to 10%).
