A coruscating ray springs towards the target, inflicting a 1d6 Strength penalty plus 1 additional per 2 caster levels. Maximum Strength penalty 1d6+5 at caster level 10. This spell has double range.


  • Contrary to the PnP rules, an enemy casting Ray of Enfeeblement on you may decrease your Strength to 0, rendering you helpless.
  • Casting this spell multiple times can increase the penalty, as each subsequent cast will refresh the duration, and override the old effect if the new effect is at a higher roll. Lower rolls will not override higher ones.
  • Consume a Lesser Restoration Potion (or have the spell cast) to recover from this effect.
