NimbusOfLight.png
Name: Nimbus of Light
School: Evocation (Light)
Level: Clr 1, FvS 1
Spell Point Cost: 4
Components: VerbalVerbal: A verbal component is a spoken incantation. You cannot cast spells that require this component if you cannot act or speak. This has no gameplay applications in DDO, as all characters can always speak and there are no effects which prevent you from doing so., SomaticSomatic: A somatic component is a measured and precise movement of the hand. You cannot cast spells that require this component if you cannot move causing arcane spell failure resulting in a ruined spell. Spells without a somatic component may be used with disregard to Arcane Spell Failure chance. Note - that characters make the same arm gestures for most spells in DDO, so you can't tell which spells require this component by watching your character's animations., FocusFocus: A focus component is a prop of some sort. Unlike a material component, a focus is not consumed when the spell is cast and can be reused. This has no gameplay applications in DDO, as all characters are always considered to be carrying a focus component at all times and it does not require a inventory slot.
Metamagic: Empower, Maximize, Quicken
Range: Double
Target: Foe, Directional, Breakable
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No
Cooldown: 2 seconds
Description:

A glittering corona of light coalesces around your outstretched arm, dealing 1d4+4 points of light damage plus 1 additional damage for every caster level. This ray has double spell range.

Note: This spell has no saving throw, and hits creatures with Spell Resistance every try. Coupled with its low spell point cost, long range, and relatively fast casting time, Nimbus of Light is a surprisingly effective means of damage against single, powerful enemies, such as bosses. This is especially true of enemies well defended against nonmagical attacks, such as an Inevitable. This is also true at high levels, when 4 SP will do an average of 27 unstoppable damage (plus applicable spell boosts), making several casts of Nimbus of Light bursts much cheaper and more total guaranteed damage than, say, Cometfall.
