The Paladin calls upon the divine power of her patron to decimate her foe. When successfully cast, the target is surrounded by a damaging sacred force, and may additionally be forced to kneel. Divine Strike also forces the target into Roundtime (RT).

The base chance of success for this spell is 50%, and further modified by Spiritual Lore, Religion as identified below for an up to 100% chance of success.

Lore Benefits

Training in Spiritual Lore, Religion increases the overall chance of forcing the target to kneel by 2% per rank, with a maximum bonus of 50% gained at 25 ranks.
