I agree with Whartung. Dropping your speed by half (or any multiplier) would make the spell a bigger dud than the current Quake. The only monsters it would be smart to use the spell on would the ones...

This is largely how I imagine it. This is the form that Sauron's werewolf shape takes, and humanoid wolf monster just feels kind of...goofy in a Tolkienesque world.

I'm honestly OK with werewolf...

Sounds kind of reminiscient of TOME2's god system. I'm assuming you're drawing a lot of inspiration from that? A few thoughts:

In general this sounds good. However, slowing when you miss is one serious downside. Maybe its not a big deal in the endgame, but many of the most dangerous enemies (including Morgoth) are so fast...

For now, I've replaced Blade of Rage with Scare Monster. Scaring a single monster seems like a reasonably thematic spell. Maybe useless, maybe overpowered, I don't know how reliable scare is, but...

I find it mildly annoying when playing a Rage Mage, since you can only learn one spell per book, so you end up buying a *lot* of copies of the starting two books. It's really annoying when you get...

Why is this a problem? By the time you're going from level 49 to 50, experience is no longer important. Maybe if you're a pure caster and that level gets you a few more spells at 0% failure,but even...
