This spell attempts to strip all magical effects from a single target. It can also target a group of creatures, attempting to remove the most powerful spell effect from each creature. To remove an effect from a creature, you make a dispel check of 1d20 +1 per caster level (to a maximum of +5) against a DC of 11 + the spell effect's caster level.


  • Despite the description of the first use of the spell, this spell cannot target a lone creature, instead it can only be cast on the ground, affecting those within its area of effect. This means it cannot attempt to strip all magical effects and can instead only strip the 'most powerful' spell effect from each creature.
