|Calls wraiths and ghosts to haunt the caster's target. They will only attack the creature they are haunting, and will dissipate quickly once their target dies.|
Between 2 to 6 monster are summoned around the target. Higher spell power may increase the number of summons. Unlike other summoning spells, Haunt cannot be cast without a valid hostile target.
The composition of the horde is random with the following weightings:
- W Wraith (41.67% chance)
- W Freezing wraith (16.67%)
- W Phantasmal warrior (16.67%)
- W Shadow wraith (8.33%)
- W Phantom (8.33%)
- W Hungry ghost (8.33%)
The summoned ghosts will only attack the target selected by the caster, ignoring player commands. When the haunt target dies, the remaining monsters will expire within a few turns, regardless of how much duration was otherwise remaining (though they will be free to attack other targets during this short window).
Unless the target dies the summons have duration of around 27 turns. This does not depend on the spell power.
The amount of creatures you can summon with this spell is not capped.
If you worship a good god, all the creatures summoned will be hostile.
- Haunt is one of the better spells for dealing with monsters lacking negative energy resistance.
