Salt Crystals is an innate ability effect available to most Salt Mephit creatures in the game saga.


The spell effect is uninterruptable and takes almost no time to deploy. A bullet projectile is launched at a single target in range.

It will strike the target and inflict 1d4 (crushing) damage. A Saving throw vs. Breath Attack is required to negate a Stun effect lasting 12 seconds. The stun will place the target under the Helpless state. The stun effect can be blocked by magic resistance and also has a level 2 spell pwer, so it can also be stopped with protection such as Minor Globe of Invulnerability or Minor Spell Deflection.

The crushing damage will bypass magic resistance, but it also can be blocked by a spell protection because it too has a level 2 spell power. A Stoneskin could also absorb the crushing damage.
