Beckons the target forward, attempting to place them adjacent to the caster.

Lesser Beckoning pulls a single target adjacent to the caster. It won't move victims into ineligible terrain (such as lava), but can move them past such terrain, and can move monsters into traps or clouds. It requires line of fire for enemies to be affected, and its range increases from 3 to 5 with spell power.

Warpers start with this spell available.


Lesser Beckoning is mostly useful for slow characters, such as Nagas, players in Statue Form, or worshippers of Cheibriados, for pulling enemies to you so that you can hit them in melee.

At higher power levels, it is useful for all sorts of characters. It can pull enemies in, such as an annoying centaur or deep elf. This helps you kill them before taking loads of ranged attacks.
