|Spell/Job Level Information|
- This spell is only accessible while under the effects of SCH's 1-hour Tabula Rasa.
- Should Tabula Rasa wear off while you are casting this spell, you will get a message stating that you cannot cast this spell when the casting completes.
- To learn this spell, speak to Erlene in the Eldieme Necropolis (S) at (J-8) while on Scholar. (Your SCH must be level 5 or higher.)
- Does considerable initial damage (~Tier 5 spell), and gives a DoT that does about a fourth of the initial damage every tick. A well-geared, unresisted Kaustra can do well over 25,000 damage (initial plus damage over time).
- The base damage formula differs from regular magic damage calculations: floor(floor(0.067*Lv)*(37+floor(0.67*dINT)))
- The base damage depends on the main level (Lv), not on the level difference.
- 0.067*Lv is floored to one decimal digit, all other floors round down to the next integer.
- dINT is caster's INT vs. target INT and caps at 300.
- This formula is exact for most levels (including 99), but has some minor deviations at certain lower levels.
- Other multipliers, such as darkness elemental potency and Magic Attack Bonus, are applied on top of the base damage normally.
- This DoT effect caps at 24,999 damage per tick.
- This spell cannot be erased, but can be overwritten by (and overwrites) the effects of Embrava or removed (at least by monsters) with Exuviation.
- The effect of this spell will wear off if an affected mob goes passive.
