Notes and Tips

  • Scroll crafted by combine Sheet of Paper, Shadow Essence, and Skull
  • Does not trigger the healing from Necromancer
  • The A.I will usually avoid attacking you if you have activated this spell. Interestingly, this doesn't see to apply to the enemy that you applied the Shackled to, only any other enemies. Thus, the main function is sto stop enemies from attacking you except in special situation or with special builds.
  • You can hurt enemies trough drinking poison (or healing potions if you're undead or decayed) with this ability.
  • Casting your own Shackles of Pain on a character who already has been shackled will completely overwrite the previous shackling.  Can be useful to save the Black Ring Members in the house in the Blackpits or if one of your squishier characters gets shackled.

      Lol I remember a fight early in the game: It was my mage's turn. Next to him was an enemy swordfighter with full magic armor but no physical and only 10hp left. I had 2 AP but unfortunately no attacks or skill to deal physical damage to finish him. So I used Shackles of Pain on this enemy and ran away with my last AP. He automatically attacked me with opportunity attack which led to his death because of Shackles of Pain. Love this combat system :)

        Great spell - a fun combo is using an undead to cast this spell on an enemy, then drink health potions to deal incredibly high damage for only one ap/potion. This works because, unlike poison potions which linger after drinking, health potions instantly deal their full healing and are an effective nuke to those pesky enemies who you're having trouble damaging with normal attacks.

          Obtained after killing a demon that gets summoned after using Tyrant's Helmet 3 times (Purge ability). New ability also comes with the helmet.
