You utter a single word of power that instantly kills one creature of your choice, whether the creature can hear the word or not.

This is a death effect, and as such a Deathblock effect, or Deathward spell will provide immunity.

In PvP, players will get a Fortitude save, and only face death if under 100 hit points.
