Jump to navigation Jump to search
Name: Symbol of Fear
School: Necromancy (Fear) (Mind-affecting)
Spell Level: AotS 4, Clr 6, DarkA 6, FvS 6, Sor/Wiz 6, Wlk 4
Components: 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., 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., MaterialIcon tooltip.pngMaterial: 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.

You create a purple symbol of power in the air, and it's activated by an enemy who comes into range of it. It applies the condition panicked to all nearby opponents for 6 seconds per caster level or until the symbol expires. Each enemy can make a Will save to negate this condition. The symbol dissipates in 20 seconds after being triggered, or in 5 minutes otherwise.
