Mind over Body is a group focus spell which decreases stamina activation costs for the caster and group members. The base reduction is 20% and can be further increased with training in Mental Lore, Telepathy by 5% per seed 3 of skill bonus/10 (see table).

The reduced cost from this spell applies to anything involving stamina usage: GoS sigils, combat maneuvers, warrior and rogue guild skills, etc.

"Focus" spells are a new category of group spells that do not have a fixed duration. The spell will terminate when the caster dies or is sufficiently stunned. Group members who leave the group and the immediate room of the caster will lose the spell effect within approximately 60 seconds.

A caster can maintain only one focus spell at a time. However, a group of mentalists can provide one focus spell apiece, thus enabling the group to have multiple focus spells simultaneously.

Note: Minor stuns may not cause the spell to drop. Anecdotal observations suggest that the stun length must be at least 4 or 5 rounds to end the spell (additional research is still needed).

Mental Lore, Telepathy Bonus

The following table lists the minimum telepathy rank thresholds required to obtain stamina activation cost reductions.
