Earthen Fury is an attack spell that uses SMRv2 to determine its chance to hit, with Wizard Base spell ranks determining the wizard's attack prowess. The spell is designed around being at least 1× per level trained in the Wizard circle; thus, less training than that will result in reduced effectiveness (though it is still very usable depending on circumstances). Over training in the Wizard circle does increase the effectiveness of the spell.

When the spell is cast, a critical cycle occurs, with more critical cycles occurring every 2 seconds for the next 10 seconds (a total of 6 cycles). When a cycle successfully hits, it will target the legs of the target IF the target can be knocked down and is not currently prone. If the target cannot be knocked down, or is already lying down, it will instead choose any body part. Each successive cycle does less base damage than the previous cycle, but can still do more damage due to bonuses gained from the target being injured, stunned, prone, etc. There will always be six cycles unless Earthen Fury is dispelled or the target is killed.

This spell will follow its target through rooms, but will only actually attempt to injure the target if the caster is in the same room. This means that running away from the caster is a great defense against this spell. It will also appear in SPELL ACTIVE.

Usage

  • PREP 917 | CAST {element} <target>
  • INCANT 917 {element}
  • {element} can be either FIRE or COLD, but is optional. If it is not specified, then the lore that the caster has more ranks of (Fire or Water) will be used. If the caster has equal ranks of Fire and Water Lore, then the caster's attunement will be used. If the caster is not attuned to Fire or Water, the element is chosen randomly.

Lore Benefits

Bonus Critical

Bonus criticals are granted from either Elemental Lore, Fire (Fire version) or Elemental Lore, Water (Cold version).

Training in the associated lore gives each successful critical cycle a (Lore Ranks/5)% chance to do an immediate extra, more powerful, critical against the target. This bonus is not subject to rounding, so every single rank effects this chance.

Elemental Lore, Fire or Water ranks 5 25 50 75 100 125 150 175 200 225 250
Chance for extra, more powerful critical 1% 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% 35% 40% 45% 50%
Not all thresholds shown, all ranks improve critical chance

Prone/Stun Imitation

Training in Elemental Lore, Earth gives cycles after the first a percentage of the bonus that the spell would normally gain from the target being prone or stunned. If the target is not stunned, the roll gains (100 * Earth Lore Ranks/202)% of the bonus that the target being stunned would normally grant. If the target is not prone, the roll gains (100 * Earth Lore Ranks/202)% of the bonus that the target being prone would normally grant. This means that Earth Lore is particularly effective against targets that cannot be stunned and/or knocked down. This bonus is always granted for cycles 2-6, regardless of whether previous cycles hit or missed.

Elemental Lore, Earth ranks 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 101 121 142 162 182 202
% of the stunned or prone damage bonus 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% 35% 40% 45% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90% 100%
% shown are rounded to the nearest whole #, not all thresholds shown, all ranks improve bonus
