The Minor Elemental spell circle is a widely available set of spells which offer mostly utility and defensive capabilities. There are a number of attack spells as well, though they are generally less potent and/or more expensive than their equivalents found in the dedicated professional circles.

Enhancements by Rank

All stackable and refreshable enhancement spells last for +60 sec per rank unless otherwise stated.

Picking Enhancement (403), and Disarm Enhancement (404)
Increases the bonus to the corresponding skill which the magic adds.
Elemental Wave (410)
Adds to the success and potency of this spell (to a lesser extent than caster level).

20 + (MnE ranks × 3) swings
Piercing Gaze (416)

Elemental Barrier (430)
+1 DS & +1 TD per 2 ranks greater than 30.
Major Elemental Wave (435)

Enhancements by Caster Level

+1 sec per level.
