"First, however, you will learn to inflict pain. It will be a simple matter to summon a ravening Insect Swarm to harry and wound your foes. Damage done by this swarm will heal you." – The Manual, The Book of Charnel

Insect Swarm is Charnel's level 1 spell.

Spell Summary[]

"Swarms of bloodsucking insects shot at a foe." - The Manual, The Book of Charnel

When cast upon something, wizard starts summoning more and more insects until releasing them on the target and inflicting damage.

The spell is obtained together with following spells: Scythe, Fallen and Locust. In campaign it is received in Charnel's first mission.

The Insect Swarm will follow its target and avoid most terrain obstacles, but it will hit any creature or structure (enemy or not) that happens to find itself between them. Unlike all other BA spells Insect Swarm will heal its caster by half the damage done to the target (a characteristic common to most Charnel creatures).


Possible Targets for the spell Insect Swarm
Enemy Creatures Neutral Creatures Friendly Creatures Your own Creatures
Enemy Wizards Neutral Wizards Friendly Wizards Yourself
Enemy Structures Neutral Structures Friendly Structures Your own Structures
Ground Flying Creatures Blue Souls Red Souls

Tactical Uses[]

It can kill the following creatures:

Swarm does the least amount of damage of its Basic Attack Spell counterparts, along with Wrath, however, upon hitting an enemy, your Wizard gets healed by a small amount, which is useful in a fight.
