PB means point-blank yes ie like a bad case of body-oder . . . it eminates from you you target a mob that is beating on you and cast it. If you try to cast it on a mob beating on yer tank and your tank is more than say two steps away . . . no go - dead spell / used up mana.

very useful spell

anyone that does tradeskills knows how hard it is to farm items to get for tradeskills. with this spell it makes it a lot easier. u can round up 10 to 40 mobs, depending on the level of mobs, cast this spell and bam, lots of dead mobs. i use upheaval now alot for farming tradeskill items. works very well for mobs under 40 that can be killed or almost killed with one cast. thorns usually take care of the rest. also works well for faction fixing on low level mobs.

scenario one

1. Have your bard gather many mobs, such as giants in GD or whatever,

2. Have your Enchanter Mezz the whole stinking lot,

3. Cast this baby,

4. Re mez

5. Recast

6. your faction standing <insert faction> got better, etc etc

scenario two

you are PL a alt, park alt in middle, do steps 1 to 3 above, when mobs are suffeciently injured, have them mem blurred, lowbie alt kills all.

Just my two cp

Scenario 3 - Smithing

Tag several hoppers, owlbears, etc. Fire off this spell and collect your supplies. Much faster and cheaper (mana-wise) than trying to nuke individual greenies.
You better watch your thunder, it's the first thing I'm gonna steal.

Why does it say PB AE on the target type? and what does that mean. I have tried this spell on a single mob and multiple mobs it does nothing for me so far but take a lot of mana. Can anyone clearify this spell for me?

OK never mind the PB is point blank. so another words you have to be right on the mob getting the crap beat out of you while you cast this. LOL yea good spell.

You don't have to use it for soloing. I am a smith and do the Hollowshade Moore War alot. I grab a tank friend, he rounds up a huge train of owlbears or sonic wolves, brings them to me and while he is taking hits I cast this spell. Pretty cool to see 20-40 mobs drop at your feet instantly.

More specifically, like other similar spells on this line (Word of Pain, Word of Shadow, et al), it affects all mobs within a specified radius of you. Yes, you're getting the crap beat out of you, but you're nicely tagging the ones around you for 850ish, at the bargain basement price of 650 mana.

One might wonder what a cleric high enough to cast this spell would be doing in a situation where he'd need to be this close to enough mobs to make casting it worth it, but that's just me... :-P
