This spell is a variation of:
Kereska's Favour Kereska's Favour


  • The in-game tooltip for this spell says its effect inflicts Noxious Fumes for 1 turn, but it actually inflicts it for 3 turns. It also requires a DC 13  Dexterity saving throw to apply the condition.
  • Possibly applying Noxious Fumes can only occur once per attack. A spell hitting multiple targets will still only make a single saving throw for one of the targets to apply the condition.
  • This is the only variant of Kereska's Favour Kereska's Favour that requires a saving throw to inflict its condition. The ice, thunder, and poison variants all apply their respective conditions without a saving throw.
  • The version of Melf's Acid Arrow Melf's Acid Arrow granted by this spell matches the damage of a level 5 upcasted version (7d4Damage TypesAcid + 5d4Damage TypesAcid delayed), but it only counts as a level 2 spell.
