|Exhales calcifying dust, which petrifies anyone affected for longer than a brief moment.|
Petrifying Cloud is a monster-only spell which emits a stream of clouds of calcifying dust. These deal minor damage to anything caught in the initial stream, and will attempt to petrify anything which ends its turn standing in one of the clouds. The higher your level or the HD of the affected monster, the less likely the petrification attempt is to be successful.
Gargoyle players are immune to the petrification effect, as are players in Statue, Wisp, or Shadow Form, or those that are under Zin's Vitalisation. All gargoyles, statues, insubstantial monsters, earth elementals, and catoblepae are also immune to petrification.
The following enemies cast Petrifying Cloud:
- Y Catoblepas (2d6 damage)
