Name: Feeblemind
School: Enchantment (Mind-affecting)
Spell Level: Sor/Wiz 5
Components: 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. , 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., 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.

This spell sets the Intelligence and Charisma of the victim to 1. A successful Will save negates this effect. It is useful to disable a spell caster. The override defeats enhancement bonuses. (So Fox's Cunning cannot temporarily bring the victim up to 5.)


  • Players now get a reocurring save every 2 seconds to remove the effects of the spell.
  • Enemy necromancers in level 10 quests may cast Feeblemind on you. Fortunately, they will target it on anyone, not only spell casters, so some victims (Such as Barbarians) might be only slightly disabled. Having a 1 Intelligence is less disruptive in DDO than in PnP, because only abilities which directly use Intelligence or Charisma are disabled. You can still communicate with PCs and NPCs, and remember which end of a sword to stick in monsters.
  • Charisma-focused players who use the Force of Personality Feat for their Will saves can particularly suffer if this successfully initially hits; with their Charisma dropped they will likely fail all of the re-curring save attempts for the entire duration of the spell.
  • This spell can be removed by the Heal and the Panacea spells, or by any potion of mnemonic enhancement. However, this condition also typically disables the ability to use Scrolls, so self-restoration via a Heal scroll is not possible.
