Dispel Undead is a level 4 Necromancy spell, and one of the most effective methods for fighting the undead. At max spell power, it deals up to 3d31 irresistible, AC ignoring, unavoidable damage to one adjacent undead target. Although it only affects one opponent, it is still tremendously useful for taking out single overwhelming undead foes.
Several monsters have access to a ranged version of this spell, Dispel Undead Range. While their spell power varies, it is always a significant threat to mummy, ghoul, vampire, or lichform players.
Tips & Tricks
- Dispel Undead works on player ghosts too, so you can consider memorising it if you encounter an item in a ghost vault.
