|Ray of Exhaustion

|VerbalVerbal: 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., SomaticSomatic: 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., MaterialMaterial: 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.

A black ray projects from your pointing finger. The target is immediately exhausted for the spell’s duration. Exhausted creatures take a -6 penalty on Strength and Dexterity, and suffer a -25% penalty to movement speed. A successful Fortitude save means the creature is only fatigued.
Duration of the Ray is 60 seconds base+6 seconds per caster level.
This spell functions differently against Player Characters:
- Duration: Reduced: It lasts only 20 seconds+1 second per caster level.
- Save: Fortitude partial = If you succeed on the save you are instead only fatigued (-2 penalty on Strength and Dexterity, and suffer a -10% penalty to movement speed.
This spell has no effect on a creature already exhausted, although each successful cast should reset the duration to this spell's maximum.
