Mass Blur causes all characters in the caster's group to appear blurred to attackers, providing the defense equivalent of 20 ranks of Dodging. The spell remains on all characters who are members of the group when the spell is cast for the full duration even if the group is not maintained. This spell stacks in duration and with other defensive effects.

Mass Spells

This is one of three spells, collectively and colloquially known as "massies", that provide a defensive bonus, affect all members of the caster's group, and remain persistent after the group is disbanded. As such, it is quite common for groups to form in public places specifically for the purpose of casting these spells. The caster does not need to be the leader of the group.

The other two such spells are Mass Elemental Defense (419) and Mass Colors (611).

F2P subscribers can only affect themselves when casting these spells. To cast for groups, they would need to purchase a Spell Casting Pass.
