Mycontil's last resort was a spell unique to Halruaa.[1]


This spell was rumored to by used by Mycontil himself during his final stand against the Dambraii invaders.[1]


This spell converted every spell memorized by a wizard into pure magical energy, allowing for an extremely deadly strike to every creature standing with 30 ft. (10 m) of the caster.[1]

This spell even affected creatures with magical resistance, but with less power.[1]

The caster risked their life when casting this spell. If they were able to resist the deadly magic, then the caster was permanently weakened, often falling into a prolonged coma for several weeks.[1]


This spell required a finger bone of an archmage to cast. Before casting, the finger bone needed to be prepared using a special ritual that lasted several days.[1]

Materials needed for the ritual included:

  • diamond dust worth at least 5,000 gp
  • platinum ring
