"As you have seen, much of your training shall be in curative and defensive abilities, but there is also a dark side to nature--a roaring, seething fury ready to strike out at those who profane Us. Once you are ready, We shall teach you something of this and unlock for you the secrets of calling forth a vengeful Rain of Frogs. True, it does not sound very dreadful, and true there are no great legends of the overthrow of evil to an amphibian deluge, but rest assured it is not for lack of power, but only because none who face the torrent of croaking judgment survive to tell the tale. (Be aware that frogs, being the simple-minded creatures that they are, will not be able to tell friend from foe. Get your units out of range before casting, lest they croak. Pardon the pun.)" – The Manual, The Book of Persephone

Rain of Frogs is Persephone's level 5 spell.

Tactical Uses[]

One of the most essential Persephone spells, you can slow down and damage opponents, making it easier for your melee units to land hits, and finishing off slow units with spell damage.

  • If used on a single target ensnared by Grasping Vines, it can deal large amounts of damage in a short period of time.
  • It is also effective to cast this spell over an area your opponent is trying to cross through, allowing you to slow him down, making for an easy get away, or a useful combat advantage.
  • It is a good idea to use this spell once you have killed your opponents units. Doing this will make it very difficult for the enemy wizard to collect his souls, and gives you time to recharge your mana supply to fight back, or convert Souls.
  • Be very careful using this spell, as the slowdown and frog damage is also very harmful to yourself and your units. It is advisable to use Rain of Frogs at a range to avoid any friendly casualties.
