Faerie fire was a evocation or alteration spell that outlined a target.[8][6][9][3][10]

EffectEdit

Faerie fire caused a glowing lining around targets in a selected area.[8][6][9][3][10] In most versions, the spellcaster could chose the color of the glow, picking between green, blue, violet, or red.[8][6][9][10][11]

All versions of the spell made a target easier to hit,[6][10][3] but the post-Spellplague version also caused radiant damage and slowed the target.[3] The pre-Spellplague version negated the effects of spells like blur or darkness.[9]

ComponentsEdit

Other than the usual vocal and somatic components[6][9][10] one version needed foxfire.[8]

UsersEdit

Drow had the innate ability to cast faerie fire.[12] This ability was granted to them by Faerzress. The drow used the ability in combat as well as to decorate their cities.[11][13]
