Stunning Shout is a spellsong that, on a successful warding roll, first deals HP damage, followed by impact or unbalance critical damage, then stuns or disorients the target. A creature that is already stunned will not have the previous stun stack with the resulting stun, but a greater stun will replace the previous stun. Disorientation will result in roundtime and possibly other ill effects.

Damage Formula

The damage of the initial HP cycle depends on the endroll and the bard's training in Elemental Lore, Air.

Failed to parse (MathML with SVG or PNG fallback (recommended for modern browsers and accessibility tools): Invalid response ("Math extension cannot connect to Restbase.") from server "https://api.formulasearchengine.com/v1/":): {\displaystyle \mathrm{HPDamage} = 10 + \left \lfloor{\frac{\mathrm{Endroll} - 100}{4}}\right \rfloor + \left \lfloor{\frac{\mathrm{AirLoreRanks}}{3}}\right \rfloor}

For example, with a 169 endroll and 30 lore ranks,

10 + (69/4) + (30/3) = 10 + 17 + 10 = 37 damage
