Name: Greater Creeping Cold
School: Evocation (Cold)
Level: Drd 6
Spell Point Cost: 20
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., VerbalIcon tooltip.pngVerbal: A verbal component is a spoken incantation. You cannot cast spells that require this component if you cannot act or speak. This has no gameplay applications in DDO, as all characters can always speak and there are no effects which prevent you from doing so.

Range:
Target: Foe
Duration: 12 seconds
Saving Throw: None

Description:

Deals on-going cold damage to the target every 2 seconds for 12 seconds. The damage starts small, and grows larger as the spell continues. Each phase lasts 4 seconds.

  • First phase: 2d4 Cold damage +4 per 2 caster levels (max +40 at caster level 20).
  • Second phase: 4d4 Cold damage +6 per 2 caster levels (max +60 at caster level 20).
  • Third phase: 6d4 Cold damage +8 per 2 caster levels (max +80 at caster level 20).
Interactions with other spells:
  • If you cast another Creeping Cold, the old spell is gone, replaced by the new one. This means you're losing the increased damage from phase 2 and phase 3. Recast only after the final tic.
  • Creeping Cold and Greater Creeping Cold can affect a target simultaneously.
  • Greater Creeping Cold suppresses Niac's Biting Cold of all arcane casters.
  • Crushing Wave on various weapons and Ruby of the Crushing Wave may reset the counter
