When Dazzling Flash is cast, all vulnerable creatures within range and LOS may be blinded for 4 to 8 turns, with the chance of success increasing with spell power and decreasing with monster hit dice. At full power, the odds are
95% - (4 * HD).
While useful to anyone as an occasional escape spell or to slow down a crowd while you whittle it down to size, stabbers benefit the most, as this spell ignores both willpower and see invisible. Its effectiveness tapers off toward the endgame, where more monsters are immune or have high HD. For single targets, Confusing Touch lasts much longer and has multiple chances to hex per cast.
