Corrosion                                Water/Earth Malediction

Duration: (level / 16) hours                         Minimum Cost: 22 mana
Range: Single PC or Mob

Syntax: cast 'corrosion'

By combining the disciplines of water and earth, a mage of both can
create a slurry of corrosive minerals to be flung at an opponent. Should
this spray land on any metal equipment, it will begin to rapidly weaken and
corrode it. If proper care is taken of the equipment, ultimately no harm
will come to it; however, should a piece of armor stop a blow while under
the weakening influence, it may crumple into uselessness. Weapons are
less-immediately vulnerable, but will nonetheless deteriorate far more
rapidly if used while coated with these minerals. It is rumored that the
spell was originally commissioned by the guild of blacksmiths in an attempt
to drum up business; whether true or not, there is no doubt that the working
is effective.
