Acid Rain

From DDO wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Name: Acid Rain
School: Conjuration (Creation) (Acid)
Spell Level: Blc 4, Sor/Wiz 4
Components: VerbalIcon tooltip.pngVerbal: A verbal component is a spoken incantation. You cannot cast spells that require this component if you cannot act or speak. Certain rare spells, such as Silence Creature, may temporarily disable spells that require verbal components., SomaticIcon tooltip.pngSomatic: 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., MaterialIcon tooltip.pngMaterial: A material component is one or more physical substances or objects that are annihilated by the spell energies in the casting process. You must have the required items in your inventory. If you run out of the components, the game will not allow you to cast the spell and will instead inform you of what component is missing. The metamagic feat Eschew Materials and some enhancements in Draconic Incarnation can remove this restriction.
Spell Point Cost: 15
Metamagic: Empower, Enlarge, Eschew, Maximize, Quicken
Target: Foe, Positional, Breakable
Range: Standard AOE
Duration: 8 seconds
Saving Throw: Reflex half on initial tic only
Spell Resistance: No
Cooldown: 5 seconds (Wiz), 4 seconds (Sor)


You create a storm that sends down a single torrent of caustic rain. Any creatures that are hit with the rain take 1d4 per caster level (max 15d4) in acid damage every 2 seconds for a duration of 8 seconds. Targets first entering the rain may make a reflex save for half, but remaining in the rain they will take damage with no saving throw.

Notes: This spell has an initial tic like Wall of Fire, and allows for a reflex saving throw against the initial tic.

  • Bug: This spell is listed in the official known issues for a couple of reasons:
    1. Acid Rain's description incorrectly states that the spell lasts for 9 seconds, when the spell actually lasts for 8 seconds.
    2. Acid Rain should be doing more damage than it currently does.
