Sign of Wracking is attained at the 18th rank in the Council of Light. Upon invocation, it instantly replenishes all mana at a cost of 5 spirit points. It is widely considered a primary reason for joining the society, particularly among spell casting classes. Because remaining spirit has no effect on the warding system (unlike the case with melee, ranged, and unarmed combat system), this sign is an integral aspect to the hunting tactics of some casters.

Without aura enhancives, the sign cannot be used in the open in the view of non-members without punishment.
