Silence influences the spirits of sound to place a pall of silence over the target, subject to a warding roll. While silenced, the target will be unable to speak, sing, or prepare or cast a spell.

Not all creatures will react to, or be affected by Silence. In addition, Silence only prevents spells that require a preparation. It will not stop spell-like effects from creature maneuvers, such as some variants of Major Elemental Wave.

The open cast version of Silence will attempt to affect multiple targets starting at a base maximum of 3, increasing with training in Spiritual Mana Control. It will also ignore targets that are already under the effects of Silence.


  • PREP 210 | CAST {target} or INCANT 210 to cast this spell against a single target
  • PREP 210 | CAST to cast the OPEN version of the spell
  • INCANT 210 OPEN to open cast this spell once using INCANT
  • INCANT SET OPEN 210 to always open cast this spell using INCANT 210
  • INCANT 210 EVOKE to cast the OPEN version of the spell once using INCANT. This may potentially hit non-creatures (i.e. other player characters)
  • INCANT SET EVOKE 210 to always evoke this spell using INCANT 210. This is not recommended for open cast AoE attack spells
