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., 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.

Calls forth a bolt of lightning, which strikes your chosen target for 1d6+6 damage for every caster level up to 15. A successful reflex save reduces this damage by half.

Unlike the spell Lightning Bolt, Call Lightning originates from above the target and strikes downwards hitting only one target with no chance to rebound.
