This acts like a counterspell, but instead of dispeling a spell, it converts the type of damage. This can be applied to both ally and opponent damage, Wisdom check to resist.

  • This changes up to 10 points of energy damage into a different energy type (i.e., turn cold into fire damage). This has no effect on if the damage hits, and still does the same damage (just a different type). Energy damage is defined as: Acid, Cold, Electricity, Fire, Force and Sonic. This only works on energy damage, not things like piercing or ability damage. This converts the target's effect equally even with such things as lightning strike or area effects. This conversion lasts for only 1 round (+1 per 3 spellcaster levels), thus energy effects that last longer revert back to their original energy type in following rounds. Damage that exceeds the 10 points is treated as normal.
  • This does not work against magic weapons or magic equipment (except wands and the like).
  • Example: An enemy manifester deals 4d8 damage in an area, this power is cast (to convert fire into cold), the enemy fails its save, all in area receive 10 points of cold damage and the rest in fire (average 8). Thus creatures with immunity or resistance can use this power to aid them or use it to against vulnerable opponents (when used on an ally’s power).

At Higher Levels. If you cast this spell at a higher spell slot, for each level after 2nd convert 10 more damage and increase save DC by 2.
