Wall Of Water

School evocation [water]; Level druid/shaman 5, sorcerer/wizard 4


Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S, M/DF (a handful of water)


Range Medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
Effect opaque sheet of water up to 20 ft. long/level or a ring of water with a radius of up to 5 ft./2 levels; either form 20 ft. high
Duration concentration +1 round/level
Saving Throw Reflex partial; see text; Spell Resistance yes


You create an opaque, upright wall of water that blocks vision. Creatures trying to pass through the wall take 2d6 hp bludgeoning damage +1/caster level (maximum +20) and must make a Reflex save or be pushed back 5 ft. The wall deals double damage to creatures with the fire subtype.

If you evoke the wall so that it appears where creatures are, each takes damage as if trying to pass through the wall (half damage on a successful Reflex save). Each is pushed into a square of the creature’s choice adjacent to the area occupied by the wall. If any 5-ft. length of wall takes 20 hp or more of magical fire damage in 1 round, that length evaporates.

Wall of water can be made permanent with a permanency spell. This costs 5,000 gp with minimum caster level 10th.

A permanent wall of water suppressed with fire becomes inactive for 10 min., then reforms at normal strength.
