Mass Snake Strike is a fourth-level nature magic spell that costs eight spell points and gives all friendly targets the First Strike ability.
Their warriors struck with such uncanny speed, startling our troops. We were unable to retaliate. I knew once our initiative was lost, the battle was lost too.
An upgraded version of Snake Strike, this is a good spell to get out fairly early on in the combat. Not so useful if most of your army is spell casters or ranged attackers.
