|Attack Magic - Damage
| Damage Type
| Critical Type
Thought Lash creates a crackling whip of psychic energy that strikes the target for damage and leaves a residue energy that increases subsequent critical damage on the target. This effectively gives the target negative critical padding. The residual energy will last for a duration of 30 seconds.
The initial damage from a successful cast will result in a grapple critical. These criticals will often result in injuring, knocking down and stunning the target.
Training in Mental Lore, Manipulation increases the critical damage of subsequent attacks. The lore increase is based on skill, with "100 skill adding a little less than half a crit rank" (see saved posts).
This is a mental warding spell.
