Disintegrate is a core warding attack spell which causes portions of a target's body to melt away.

Under normal circumstances, the spell inflicts two damage cycles upon the target. If the target is stunned, or if the target is non-corporeal undead, a third damage cycle will take place.

Additionally, casting this spell upon an item will cause it to be destroyed.

Lore Benefits

Training in Sorcerous Lore, Necromancy provides three benefits:

Bolt Version

As mentioned above, 20 ranks of Necromancy Lore unlocks the ability for Disintegrate to be cast as a bolt spell, which is cast using PREP 705, EVOKE {target}.

Opponent Effectiveness Reduction

Necromancy Lore provides the ability for both the regular and bolt aspects of the spell to temporarily weaken weapons, shields, and armor for 60 seconds when the target is struck. The percent chance is based upon a seed 6 summation of the caster's Necromancy ranks. One of three effects may occur:

  1. Weapons having 25% less damage factor;
  2. Shields reducing the target's block chance by 5% and cause it to suffer -20 to offense with shield maneuvers; and
  3. Armor is reduced by 1 Armor Group.

The effect(s) stacks and the duration renews each time the lore benefit triggers. The target must be struck on the right hand or arm for the weapon effect, and on the left hand or arm for the shield effect. Any other location hit will trigger the armor effect.

Sorcerous Lore, Necromancy ranks 6 13 21 30 40 51 63 76 90 105 121 138 156 175 195 216 238
Chance for opponent effectiveness reduction 1% 2% 3% 4% 5% 6% 7% 8% 9% 10% 11% 12% 13% 14% 15% 16% 17%

Damage Factor Bonus

Training in Sorcerous Lore, Necromancy increases the bolt version only damage factor (DF).

Lore Ranks
Damage Factor
1 to 50
0.001 per rank
51 to 100
0.001 per two ranks
101 to 200
0.001 per four ranks

The total DF increase with 200 ranks Necromancy lore is 0.100.

Channel Damage

Channeling provides additional damage by boosting the effective warding margin of a spell. Thus a channeled spell with bonuses of 25 and a warding roll of 101 would do the same damage as a cast spell with a warding roll of 126. Stance gives a bonus of 4 at guarded and 20 at offensive. Disintegrate is a special cast that only takes stance into account, and not the open hand factor. This bonus is added on top of any other applicable warding margin bonuses, such as an incapacitated target (+15 for most spells), or the charge-up effect of Fervent Reproach. This applies to both warding and bolt versions of the spell.

Bonus +20 +16 +12 +8 +4
