Evard's Black Tentacles.png
Name: Evard's Black Tentacles
School: Conjuration (Creation)
Level: Wlk 4
Spell Point Cost: 30
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 Material and some enhancements in Draconic Incarnation can remove this restriction.
Metamagic: Empower, Maximize, Eschew, Quicken
Range: Standard AOE
Target: Positional, Breakable
Duration: 10 seconds
Saving Throw: Strength check or become Entangled, Fortitude save partial takes half bludgeoning damage
Spell Resistance: Yes
Cooldown: 20 seconds

Conjures a zone filled with many rubbery black tentacles for 10 seconds. While inside the zone, enemies are Slowed (no save). Every 2 seconds, enemies within the zone must make a successful Strength save or become Entangled by the tentacles for 10 seconds. All enemies within the zone take 1d4 Bludgeoning damage per caster level (Scales with Force/Impulse Spell Power) every 2 seconds as the tentacles try to grab them, and an additional 1d4 per caster level if Entangled. A successful Fortitude save reduces the damage by half. Tentacles may continue to hold enemies after the zone fades, though they will not deal damage.

Commonly abbreviated: EBT.
