Disintegrate, originally called Aksa's disintegrate,[11] was an alteration or transmutation spell that created a thin green ray that made a creature or a object of a certain size vanish,[10][5] or be reduced to ash or dust.[4][3][12]

EffectEdit

Older versions of disintegrate made the target disappear no matter if it was a creature, or magical matter, or a 1" cubic volume of other material.[10][5]

The newer versions spell struck and injured a target, and if killed, the ray caused the creature to disintegrate into a pile of fine dust, although any equipment was not affected. The ray could also disintegrate as much as one 10-foot-cube of nonliving matter, even objects constructed entirely of force, but it could not affect magical effects, such as a globe of invulnerability. Only one creature or object could be affected per casting.[4][12]

The spell has a range of over 100' (30 m).[4]

Material componentsEdit

In order to cast the spell, the caster had to use a lodestone and a pinch of dust.[10][5][4][12]

HistoryEdit

The spell was invented by the Netherese arcanist Aksa the Destroyer in −2095 DR.[13]

The wizard Parwyyd Hanifar used a disintegrate spell to destroy his own Great Door in order to end the threat it posed.[14]
