Name: Implosion
School: Evocation (Death) (Untyped)
Level: Clr 9, FvS 9
Spell Point Cost: 50
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. Certain rare spells, such as Silence Creature, may temporarily disable spells that require verbal components.
Metamagic: Quicken, Embolden
Range: Standard Self AOE Aura
Target: Untargetable, hits closest nearby foe
Duration: 10 seconds, 5 tics
Saving Throw: Fortitude save partial, prevents death but still takes damage
Spell Resistance: Yes
Cooldown: 60 seconds

You create a destructive resonance field around yourself that lasts 10 seconds. Every 2 seconds, the aura causes one nearby corporeal enemy to collapse in upon themselves and die, or upon a successful fortitude save, deals 2d3+6 damage per caster level. No initial tic, you get a total of five tics, one after 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 seconds. You are free to perform other actions while it is active.

Death Ward and Deathblock protect against Implosion.

Implosion is fairly unique as insta-kill spells go in that it can kill any corporeal target including Undead and Constructs.

The effect for Implosion is a purple "vortex" on a destroyed creature.
