Calling upon the echoes of every song ever sung, the bard creates a cacophony of sound, disrupting the magical forces in the area, and preventing all in the room from casting spells. Due to the difficulty in singing this song, the bard may experience trouble renewing or singing other spellsongs while this song is in effect.

Training in Bard Base spell ranks adds to the effectiveness of Song of Noise by an unknown factor.

Renewal Cost

Magical Items and Scrolls

Song of Noise (1017) has increased effect with Bard Base spell ranks.

If cast from a magic item or a scroll, the effective spell rank is determined by the larger of either the user's natively trained Bard Base spell ranks, or a phantom spell rank calculated based on Magic Item Use or Arcane Symbols, respectively. This calculated rank is identical for all activation verbs.

Semi-Profession Effective Spell Rank (MIU/AS)
0.25 per MIU/AS rank up to caster level
0.165 per MIU/AS rank up to 2x caster level
0.05 per MIU/AS rank above 2x caster level
