Duration: 1.5 + (level / 34) hours                     Minimum Cost: 90 mana
Cooldown: 10 - 15 hours, varies by skill

Syntax: cast 'shakestride'

The shakestride spell temporarily bonds a mage's feet to the earth, such
that whenever she walks into a new room, the earth will rumble at her feet.
This may knock over people in the room, sweeping them off their feet and
potentially lagging them; however, it will do no damage and will not
initiate combat. The caster's groupmates are generally not exempt from this
effect. No such quaking will take effect unless the mage actually sets foot
to ground; in particular, it will not work at sea or in the air, or if the
caster is flying.
