Description: Each adversary you face will have strengths and weaknesses. The Devolve spell is designed to seek out your foe's strengths specifically. It is a spell to enfeeble the hearty, to confound the wise, or to hinder the quick. And while this spell is more versatile than similar magical effects, it suffers a loss of its potency from the broad range that it affects.

Example Messaging: You gesture at a musk hog.

You focus on the musk hog's life essence as you swipe your hand downward in its direction! A bluish green aura leaches out from the musk hog, which solidifies into a double helix composed of the two individual hues. The helices spin rapidly as it shrinks into the musk hog's chest.

Contest Type: magic / fortitude

Notes

  • Less powerful than other debuffs because of the versatility of debuff, although this penalty was reduced as of Magic 3.2.
