How to learn



  • Unlike most other control spells, the target of Otto’s Irresistible Dance does not get to attempt a saving throw when the spell is first cast, meaning their turn is very likely to be wasted.
    • Counterspell is one of the very few ways to prevent this from happening
  • Until Patch 4 the target of this spell did not get to attempt to make saving throws on subsequent turns which makes it an irresistible 10 round crowd control ability. This bug was fixed in Patch 4.
  • The incantation for Otto's Irresistible Dance is Obēdirē, the Latin command "obey!"
