Continuously abjures hostile summoned creatures in the vicinity of the caster. This reduces their remaining time before being sent back where they came from.

Aura of Abjuration is a level 5 Summoning spell which gives you an abjuration aura. Any hostile summoned creatures within its range will have their duration reduced each turn, and will be dismissed entirely when their duration hits 0.

Strategy

  • You can cast this spell before combat with a summoner. This saves you a turn in combat to cast this spell but costs you a turn of duration. This is usually worthwhile against opponents that have other means of hurting you badly from behind their summons; think Greater mummies and Fiends. What you do with that extra time depends on the situation, typically run or kill the summoner.

History

Prior to 0.17, Aura of Abjuration was a level 6 spell and appeared solely in Grand Grimoire.

Aura of Abjuration was added in 0.14, replacing Mass Abjuration.
