Blur was an illusion spell that made the contours of a caster "blurry".

EffectsEdit

When under this spell, the caster would become harder to hit as they did not appear to have a solid form any more.[10][6] Attacks made against a blurred caster by someone who couldn't see it ignored this spell, of course, as they couldn't see the effect.[5][11]

ComponentsEdit

The older versions of the spell needed verbal and somatic components,[10][6] but the later version only needed a verbal component.[5][11]

HistoryEdit

The spell was attributed to Netherese arcanist Smolyn in -1942 DR and was originally called Smolyn's blurring.[1]
