The Combat sphere was a group of spells granted to clerics, crusaders, and monks that could be used to smite their foes.[1][2]

Spells in the Sphere of CombatEdit



Spells in normal text were listed in the Tome of Magic 2nd edition.[3] Spells in italics were added to the Combat Sphere in the Player's Option: Spells & Magic sourcebook.[4]

†This spell was removed from the Combat Sphere in the Player's Option: Spells & Magic sourcebook. See page 186.
  1. There is some confusion about the sphere to which this spell belongs. On page 175 of the Player's Option: Spells & Magic where this spell is defined, it says it is a War sphere spell. But in the appendix on page 186 it is listed in the Combat sphere instead. Since the War sphere is mainly concerned with BATTLESYSTEM™ campaigns and entire units of NPCs, it seems more likely that this spell be in the Combat sphere.
