Description: The Nissa's Binding spell is the only legacy the Empath Guild has of Lanival's companion, Nissa. Though it is thought that this spell was originally meant to be a type of anesthesia, modern empaths have discovered other uses for it. When cast, this pattern will soothe the life essences around you and plunge them into a slumber. Those with great fortitude may resist this effect. As with most applications of this nature, Nissa's Binding is useless against the undead.
Effect: puts targets to sleep, AoE
Example Messaging: You hold out your arms, then bring them down evenly.

You contribute your harnessed streams to increase the pattern's potential.
