Mama Kolydina's Instant Infestation[]

Spell Description[]

Casting this summons a horde of small insects to your side - and your front, and back... to surround you. They act as a shield of bugs and absorb damage dealt by your enemies. You don't always attract the same insects when you cast the spell, and they have different effects.

Times and Durations[]

As your bugs take damage, they die and the swarm gets smaller until eventually it's all gone. If you're lucky enough to summon a second bunch of the same type of insect, they'll stack, otherwise a second go has no effect.
