Update: Justice charges from this spell will now only trigger on actual attacks via Touch. However, IZ is considered "necro-looking" for the purposes of Accuse.

Now that the spell has been out for some time, I'll provide a few details.

- At minimum Shock, IZ is the one of the two Esoteric spells in the game, which means it is extremely difficult and mana-expensive. Deeper Shock eases both of those, down to below Advanced spell levels at complete insensitivity. - Causing damage with it inflicts Shock at the same rate as any other damaging spell, sans the associated stun. - If your Brawling is good enough, you will have reduced roundtimes. (Aggressive Stance does affect this.)

Though quite a strong cyclic alternative to Guardian Spirit, it's likely that only the Empaths who are considering longterm Shock will find it worthwhile. It uses some fairly new mechanics which we are hoping to expand in the future, so we are very interested in feedback regarding how the various parts of the spell (damage, experience, justice, etc.) perform. I realize that the current rarity of the spell doesn't make testing easy, but thanks to those who give it a try!
