Mass Colors causes the caster's group to blend in with his or her surroundings better, conferring a bonus to defensive strength and stealth for a stackable duration. A ranger's animal companion also receives the benefits of this spell when present.

This is one of three spells, collectively and colloquially known as "massies", which provide a defensive bonus, affect all members of the caster's group, and remain persistent after the group is disbanded. As such, it is quite common for groups to form in public places specifically for the purpose of casting these spells. The other two such spells are Mass Blur (911) and Mass Elemental Defense (419).

When cast, the spell automatically converts its effect into that of Natural Colors (601) upon every member of the caster's group. Therefore, in terms of stackable spell duration, Elemental Detection (405), and all other purposes, it should be considered to simply be a multi-target version of Natural Colors (601).

Lore Effects

Training in Spiritual Lore, Blessings provides an additional bonus to the roll bonus for stealth activities at the first rank, at seed 1 of the summation chart. Another benefit of the Blessings Lore skill is a DS bonus at seed 5 of the summation chart.

Max Lore Benefit

  • Spiritual Lore, Blessings: 95 ranks provides +13 Stealth bonus and +10 DS beyond the base DS.
