      Not a bad option if cast at 50+ INT on a buffed Blue Flame. Gives you more combat options, primarily knocking down some foes for follow up strikes, or preventing yourself from getting surrounded and mobbed so you can reposition and re-engage. Damage sucks, but the utility really isn't bad

        I cast Soul Flash on the wraiths in the hall before Vendrick, with odd results. They were damaged, and knocked down, but then remained on the ground permanently. They couldn't be damaged anymore, and they rolled a bit to face me, but otherwise were just down for the count. They also didn't respawn while in this state.

          really not that good

          at sl 140 (1.7m SM) with a +5 magic staff of wisdom + sorcery clutch ring it does between 400~600 damage to players.
          for a spell that requires good positioning (its not a blue wog, believe me, the hitbox of this thing is so tiny people have to literally be in your face)

          if you REALLY want to use this, i would suggest using unleash magic and being @ the red tearstone range, it SHOULD kill people at 130 ~ 160 SL, havent tested it myself

          tl;dr use something else, its really gimmicky and hard to use (pvp wise)
