  • Medium enemies are slowed (50%) by the winds for 9 seconds on a failed save.
  • Large or larger enemies are unaffected.
  • Clears away all lingering effects in its path (even friendly/useful ones), such as Cloudkill, Otto's Sphere of Dancing and Wall of Fire.

  • Red and purple named creatures regardless of size are immune to this spell.

  • Bug: Small enemies suffer no ill effects if they save versus the knockdown.
