Wrong area of effect for circle of doom

Post by Sandrow » Fri Feb 25, 2022 5:09 pm

Description
==========
The spell description says it's area is huge, but it's actually small in game.
Here is a gif comparing it's area of effect with negative energy burst.

Expected result
-----------------------
A large area of effect, with well easily heal all your undead summons together, as well as dealing damage to your enemies.

Actual result

Bumping this.
Either the AoE written on description is wrong, or was intended to be huge.
But for a level 5 spell, it underperforms compared to Negative energy burst since NEB gives a debuff, heals undead, and deals damage too. Circle of Doom is just a healing circle, cast only once, for undead.

Circle of Doom does not seem to be using the Huge descriptor. It's using Medium for some reason in the code. Very strange, but I'll look at it when I get home unless someone else beats me to it.
