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.

Telepathically controls the actions of an Animal, Magical Beast, or Vermin, causing it to change sides. Dominate acts like Charm, with additional Will saves every 15 to 30 seconds, but the creature will follow you throughout the dungeon. Mindless targets receive no save, but the duration is halved.
