Stinking Cloud
Wizard Attack 5

Daily ✦ arcane, implement, poison, zone

Area burst 2 within 20 squares

Target: Each creature in burst

Attack: Intelligence vs Fortitude

Hit: 1d10 + Intelligence modifier poison damage

Effect: The burst creates a zone that lasts until the end of your next turn. The zone is heavily obscured, creatures that enter the zone or start their turns there take 5 + your Intelligence modifier poison damage (a creature can take this damage only once per turn). As a move action, you can move the zone up to 6 squares.

Sustain minor: The zone persists.

Stinking Cloud is a daily power available to wizards at 5th level.[PH:161] The "Class Compendium: The Arcanist" article in Dragon #401 cleaned up the language of the original version. Among other things, the power's effects were clarified, and the zone-entry damage was de-randomized.[Dr401:58] The December 2011 update limited the zone-entry damage to once a turn.[U :12/2011]
