1) This spell, being a reverse DS, can sometimes cancel/block/overwrite a mob's own DS meaning your tank takes a lot less damage over time. However, mark of kings/karn/blameless is better for that function overall.

2) This spell does 15 points of damage to the mob *every* time the mob hits someone and it has a nice duration that makes it easily last the length of a fight.

3) THIS SPELL STACKS WITH *MANY* PLAYER/POTION/GEAR/ETC DAMAGE SHIELDS

4) THIS SPELL STACKS YOUR OWN WITH MARK OF KINGS/KARN/BLAMELESS

5) This spell has an OMG range, and causes almost *no* hate upon being cast, such that pacify + this makes for a very good pulling combo if you need one.

6) Given #2-5 above, I have actually seen fights where it was better *not* to slow the mob. The tank did go down a good bit faster, which meant I had to be on my toes, but the *mob's* health also went down like you wouldn't believe. Even with slows, if you haven't get gotten the upgraded version of this spell, it can be worth the mana to cast this. The faster the mob dies, the faster you get back into "fast med" mode.

7) This spell's dps is just low enough that you can toss it on a baby critter and unless the player you are helping just sucks, they will "out-damage" you easily and get the full xp for the kill muuuch faster.

I stopped using this a long time ago. When you have a shammy or chanter hitting the mob with 50-75% slow it makes MoR not really worth casting. (the mobs hit less, Mark of Retribution does a lot less damage). If I'm up on mana I'll join the fight with summoned hammer, or toss a nuke and go back to medding/healing.

You are correct that this is not useful for dps, but where it is incredibly useful is fighting anything with it's own damage shield. Since this is a reverse DS, it will negate the damage shield worn by the mob.

It looks like the damage shield is reported as "a xxxxx was chilled to the bone"

Also drops off of Xi Xaiu in Maidens Eye. Killed 2 of them and they both dropped the same spell, maybe just dumb luck. Hope this helps.

It is kinda tough to explain.

If I cast it on a mob, and the mob then hits anyone, the mob will take 15 points of damage as if the person they hit had a 15 point damage shield.

It means that you cast it on the mob. When your tank hits the mob it takes an extra 15 damage. WONDERFUL spell when you have tanks with low delay weapons. Also stacks with Mark of Karn which when cast on a creature will heal someone who hits it. I had a Rog who was using a Nevederia's Horn and with double attack, dual wield and the extra backstab attack it was amazing how much the extra damage and free healing did.

Actually, what you are describing is closer to Mark of Karn. With that spell, when your melee hit the mob, they get 6 points of healing. Low delay helps a lot with that spell.

Sorry, it doesnt damage when you attack the mob, but rather when the mob attacks you.

It works just like any other damage shield, except you cast it on the mob, so it stacks with any and all other dmg shields.
