Different.... and I like different. Sounds cool to use, but I am wondering how useful it will acually be considering that most monsters have high Fortitude saves. Perhaps monsters roll at a -4 since it's a 9th level spell?

It being a 9th level spell would give it an inherently higher DC than flesh to stone, +3 points higher.

Also, because it has a duration, at least 4 rounds by the time you can cast it, up to 10 rounds... with a single casting you can in theory force more than one save in hopes that even a high fort save baddie or baddies
might get a bad roll.

Imagine casting the spell, then summoning a black blade within the fog to get the attention of some orc detroyers and make them run into it

Even with a +3 over flesh to stone and it being DoT and AoE, it's just not as potent as it should be as far as I'm concerned.

And that's all not to mention that the AoE DoT has to work properly, unlike most of them do currently as far as I remember.

Its in the league of Wail of the Banshee. Save or statue.

The duration makes it a little better... but the save DC is exactly on par.

Stonehold's also a DoT AoE petrifying spell. It's not 9th level, but it's incredibly useful and very effective, especially if you spam 3 or 4 of them. This spell sounds like it'd work just the same and be pretty nasty.

Just a bump for this idea.... because my 9th level spell slots are feeling neglected when it comes to offensive transmutation....

I would even live with it if we say, changed the duration to instantaneous and increased the area. (and maybe change the name to show my favorite archmage developed it hehe)
