Spiritual Abolition weakens the target's connection to the lesser spirits. This results in a random number of spells being dispelled from the target. Spiritual spells will be dispelled before spells from other spheres of magic. Diligent training in the Major Spiritual spell circle helps to increase the minimum number of spells dispelled. Caster and target levels are also factored in determining the number of spells dispelled. At minimum, two spells will be dispelled (provided at least two spells are active on the target).

For purposes of determining sphere nativity, hybrid spell circles are considered to be in all spheres for which they are connected. That is, Empath spells are in-sphere for Spiritual and Mental, while Sorcerer spells are in-sphere for Spiritual and Elemental.

The benefit from overtraining in the Major Spiritual circle is not capped at level.

For each spell dispelled, the mana cost is 1 mana for every 4 levels of the target spell, and +2 mana when the dispel doesn't match the sphere of the target spell. Every 75 skill in Spiritual Mana Control reduces the mana cost by 1. Minimum of 1 mana and maximum of 5 mana per spell. The overall minimum is 10 mana and the overall maximum is 20 mana.
