Tips Edit

This spell is very popular. In instances especially, there are often groups of small non-elites either alone or surrounding a "leader" elite. Some instance groups bring a mage along solely to quickly deal with these pests. You won't mind being pigeonholed this way... it's both fun and a challenge to test your ability to stay alive.

This is used by higher level characters for farming instances for friends, and game friends usually. It can be used for other farming purposes as well.

The 5 piece set bonus from the Netherwind Regalia set will increase the radius of the spell by 25%, for a 12.5 yd radius.

This spell is also very useful in battlegrounds while moving to try to keep stealthies away from you.
