Boon of Lathander is an innate spell ability available to Priest of Lathander Cleric kits in the game saga.


Boon of Lathander

This spell lasts 1 round per level of the caster. It gives the caster a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls, a +1 bonus to all Saving Throws, and 1 extra attack per round. It also protects the caster from level drain.


The spell effect is interruptible and has a casting time of 3 (about 1.8 seconds). The priest casts this ability upon oneself only. If successful, a "Boon of Lathander" and "Negative Plane Protection" icons will appear in the creature's portrait.

Once initiated upon the caster, the Priest receives the bonuses and protection stated in the description above, which will remain in force until the innate ability expires, or the spell is removed/dispelled. As the spell is classified as secondary type "combination" it will not be subject to a Breach spell or effect, but it can be targeted by Dispel Magic.

The internal Opcode mechanics of the innate spell include a scripting state modifier that does not prevent this spell from stacking. Even the additional attacks per round stack. Adding another Boon onto an existing one will not extend the first's duration however.
