Creates a cloud of mercury that deals Magic damage to anything within it, including the caster.
The cloud released by Pestilent Mercury deals a flat amount of damage that is not affected by armor. This makes it effective against enemies that have high magic resistance, or who are outright resistant to damage overall. In PvP, this also makes it an effective area denial tool, as the damage is quite substantial, dissuading foes from entering it.
However, the cloud will also damage its caster, so one should not throw out clouds without good reason.
Warmth and Pestilent Mercury will work against each other, as the former heals anything in range while the latter damages it. This can be used to counteract some of the healing/damage of the other spell, although it should be noted that Warmth has a considerably longer duration, but shorter casting range.
- Pestilent Mercury is one of the four sorceries required to purchase, in order for Orbeck to bestow the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring.
