Vhi's Electric Charge is a level 3 Translocations/Air Magic spell.

Warpers start with this spell in their libraries.


When cast, the spell will move the user up to the target and attack. You must be at least 2 tiles away from the target. It bypasses traps and other hazards, but not impassible terrain or monsters. If there is an invisible monster you can't see on the intended tile, then the spell "does its darned best" to displace it.

This spell uses your melee attack for damage. Time to cast will be as long as either one move or one swing, whichever is higher. Auxiliary attacks and cleaving still apply when making rolling attacks, but you can't stab.

For each tile moved, you will gain a bonus of +33% electric damage, for a maximum of 2x damage at 3 tiles. Regardless of distance, you will deal an additional power/1.5% electric damage - another +33% at max power - and gain +5 to-hit. Damage bonuses are additive, for a total of 2.33x damage against non-resistant targets.


This spell will be added in 0.30, using the roll mechanic from Palentonga.
