This spell attunes the target with their surroundings, making him or her more difficult to see, and correspondingly more difficult to attack, giving the caster +10 to their Defense strength. This bonus includes melee, ranged, and bolt DS, and increases with training in Spiritual Lore, Blessings.

The target also receives a hiding bonus in natural terrains (not hard/flat or in town). This bonus is increased by training in the Ranger Base spell circle. Casting the Sneaking (617) spell in conjuction with this spell provides a higher hiding bonus than when using Natural Colors alone. Other stealth activities, such as STALKing, remaining unseen while hidden, and unhiding unseen are also easier while this spell is in effect.

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.
