"Ranged troops can easily turn the tide of battle, that is, unless you take them out of the equation."Forgetfulness is a third-level order magic spell that costs five spell points and restrains an enemy target from using ranged attacks for the duration of the combat.
A masterful spell against the slings and arrows of your outrageous foes. Most ranged attackers suffer an egregious penalty when fighting hand-to-hand; casting this on the ranged stack will force it to get up close and personal.
Of particular note is that this spell also denies the affected stack its ranged retaliation strike, allowing your own ranged creatures to attack it with impunity. And line-of-sight is not required to cast Forgetfulness on a target.
This spell is negated by the Mind Shield and the Crystal of Memory. It has no effect on undead heroes and mechanical creatures such as ballistae, nor does it affect fire elementals. The Crown of Enchantment can confer on the caster the ability to target some otherwise immune creatures with mind spells.
