Self Control allows the caster to focus better and provides a bonus to melee defensive strength (DS) and spiritual target defense (TD). In focusing better, a caster has a greater chance to spot and disarm traps, resist sheer fear-based attacks, and betters the aim of ranged attackers. The defensive strength granted by this spell improves by one for every two ranks in Ranger Base ranks above 13 and the aiming bonus granted to archers and hurlers also increases with ranks. Target defense increases with training in Spiritual Lore, Blessings.

Total DS bonus = 20 + trunc(600s ranks - 13)/2

The bonus for this spell is capped at the caster's level, or a maximum of 63.

Unlike other spells with increasing bonuses, the mana cost does not increase and always remains a flat 13 mana.

Lore Benefit

Training in Spiritual Lore, Blessings provides an additional bonus to the spell's +20 base spiritual TD bonus of 1 per seed 5 summation of ranks.
