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 Blur (911).

When cast, the spell automatically converts its effect into that of Natural Colors (601) upon every member of the caster's group. Therefore, in terms of stackable spell duration, Elemental Detection (405), and all other purposes, it should be considered to simply be a multi-target version of Natural Colors (601).

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