Nature's Fury is a powerful mass warding attack spell allows a ranger to call upon the chaotic forces of nature to smite his foes. All not joined to the caster must pass a visible check and must pass another warding check each critical damage cycle to avoid the spell's effects.

The spell will first cause hitpoint only damage followed by a critical damage cycle. Training in Spiritual Lore, Summoning provides a chance to increase the number of critical damage cycles.

The type of critical damage is determined by the climate and terrain at the caster's location but will often include puncture and impact damage.

Initial (Raw) Damage Formula

There are two components to the initial damage. The first is a base (minimum) damage of 15 hitpoints and the second is a 0.200 damage factor applied to the endroll success margin defined as the endroll - 100. This is non-critical damage only and is the first damage value displayed in the combat messaging panel.

Initial damage = 15 base + trunc[(endroll - 100) × 0.200]
Example

With a 150 endroll (endroll success margin of 50) the total initial damage is:

15 base + (50 × 0.200) = 25

Lore Benefit

Training in Spiritual Lore, Summoning provides a chance to increase the number of critical damage cycles by a chance equal to the Summoning Lore skill bonus. For example, a 90 bonus (20 ranks) would allow a 90% chance for another damage cycle. This percentage chance is uncapped. With 100 ranks (200 bonus) of lore the spell will have a 100% chance for 3 critical damage cycles (the initial cycle plus 2 additional).

Spiritual Lore, Summoning ranks 1 5 10 17 24 33 50 75 101 125 151
Chance for 2nd critical cycle 5% 25% 50% 78% 100% 100% 100% 100% 100% 100% 100%
Chance for 3rd critical cycle - - - - 2% 26% 50% 75% 100% 100% 100%
Chance for 4th critical cycle - - - - - - - - 1% 25% 51%

Messaging

The initial 41 points of damage in the first strike is hitpoint only. From the formula above the damage calculation is:

15 + (230 - 100) × 0.200) = 41

This is then followed by four critical damage cycles against the first target.
