takes hp, 8 a tick, and raises your attk rating.

Kind of useless though since we aren't dps.
Many better spells to take up those slots.

Just because SK doesn't DPS doesn't mean you shouldn't get this spell and raise your ATK attribute. More damage output means the mob dies faster. It can make a difference between a successful raid and a total wipe.

Several months late but still. if the added DPS that 50 ATK will give the SK will save the raid, there is a massive problem. 50 ATK is a negligable amount of DPS

Raid? What raid? My SK usually runs in a threesome with a cleric and a bard. Yes the bard does more DPS but the SK runs a close second. So more ATK sounds good to me!

When TSS came out and many LDON spells became craftable by tradeskillers, I had my wizard make Dark Temptation, which is a lower-level LDON spell that has half the effect of this one (+25 ATK, -3 hp/tick). Hard to say if it helps, but the hp loss is trivial, especially with the new out-of-combat regen rules. And it lasts for an hour, so it's not as though I have to tie up a spell gem for it. (Heck, I have to reload my self-buffs spell set every 20 minutes for Scream of Death or Vampiric Embrace anyway, so casting this once an hour is no big deal.) And if you meant that it's not worth the buff slot, well, again that's assuming you're raiding and your buff window is full.

On the other hand, I haven't seen any indication that this spell can be crafted. Does anyone know for sure? Where did the recipe for Dark Temptation come from?

My Raid Comment was a direct reply to the person above me (Who said "It can be the difference between a successful raid and a wipe") and as for Dark Temptation, Not Craftable, have to get it from LDoN.

For those who may be wondering, this is an LDoN spell - it costs 400 AP at the Everfrost camp.

Try gonig on www.shadowknight.org and look at the spell forums. The website also has info of the other sk spells and think they come out with the new expansion, LDoN. Not sure if these spells are real though, just look at the website
