Heroism draws additional fortitude from the surrounding lesser spirits. This serves to bolster the caster's courage and confidence, thus improving the caster's combat effectiveness. The spell also helps to bring the caster's mind and body into focus, allowing the caster to recover from both physical and mental fatigue at a faster rate. In addition, it provides an unknown defensive benefit against SMRv2 spells and maneuvers.

The caster gains 25 to attack strength (AS) (both physical and bolt spell) and regenerates 1 mana (MP) and 1 health point (HP) every minute.

Finally, Heroism adds 3 effective levels against sheer fear attacks from undead creatures, and increases the user's defense against a standard maneuver roll if the maneuver is able to be evaded.
