  • Rout, 20 pts in 15 ft for 30 secs


Note that most of these perks will stack, so the overall effective values for the spell with perks are as follows:

Max Lvl
Single-cast Dual-cast
Default 20 44
Animage 28 61
Kindred Mage 30 66
Aspect of Terror 30 66
Animage + Aspect of Terror 38 83
Kindred Mage + Aspect of Terror 40 88

Master of the Mind will not stack with Kindred Mage or Animage, which is primarily of interest when attempting to cast spells on vampires, when it will come up that Kindred Mage does not apply, even though vampires have black souls. Death Hounds are not affected by Animage, but they are not animals to begin with; more generally, the perks will not combine when fighting people or animals raised by necromancers.
