Physical resistance check vs. the attacker's spellpower is every 4s (special rank targets only, which includes lieutenant+ ranks and the player's party. No physical resistance check for lower rank targets).
  • Only works on moving targets (targets standing still are immune).
  • Range: 25m
  • Conjuration time: 1s
  • 50 Threat is drawn from all enemies in the AoE.
  • An additional 20 Threat is drawn on Hard / Nightmare difficulties.

Notes Edit

  • Activation base is in mana and values vary with fatigue%.
  • Arcane Warrior Spellcasting: The spell can be cast with your weapon(s) drawn.
  • Targets are not actually knocked down, they slip.
  • Earthquake can be cast on creatures or locations not in line of sight. A mage can cast this spell on creatures in a different room when using the overhead view. This allows the mage to stay out of physical harm by staying out of reach of those creatures.
