This spell functions like Charm Person, except that the effect is not restricted by creature type. Monsters that fail its Will save are charmed and get additional saves every 3d6+12 seconds. A successful Will save negates this effect.
This spell is very similar to Suggestion, and a player should carefully weight the relative benefits before choosing which of the two spells to pick (or use).
Benefits: This spell is one spell level higher, and thus has a +1 higher save DC. This spell has a longer maximum duration, particularly at lower caster levels. This spell works on animals and other monsters with no languages, while Suggestion does not.
Drawbacks: This spell is one spell level higher, and thus costs 5 more SP. This spell has the potential to break early. This spell has a 1 second longer base cooldown than Suggestion does. Suggestion has no Somatic component, which means it is not subject to arcane spell failure from armor or shields.
