Notes

  • The description given is not entirely correct in how the spell functions:
    • When the target of this spell succeeds in their saving throw, they still take half damage, regardless if they are considered plants or not
  • There are very few plants in the game. By the time you get this spell you're likely in Act II where all the plants are resistant to necrotic damage anyway, so the maximum damage clause is rarely relevant.
  • The incantation for Blight is Perē, the Latin command "vanish/be destroyed!"
