Description Chokes an enemy with poison, doing more damage as their Stamina drops. The power of the effect is equal to the Caster's Spirit Speak skill divided by 10. The minimum power is 4. The power number determines the duration and base damage of the Strangle effect.

Each point of power causes the Strangle effect to damage the target one time. The first round of damage is done after five seconds. Four seconds later, the second round hits. Each round after that comes one second more quickly than the last, until there is only 1 second between hits. Damage is calculated as follows: The range of damage is between power - 2 and power + 1. Then the damage is multiplied based on the victim's current and maximum Stamina values. The more the victim is fatigued, the more damage this spell deals. The damage is multiplied by the result of this formula: 3 - (Cur Stamina ÷ Max Stamina x 2. For example, suppose the base damage for a Strangle hit is 5. The target currently has 40 out of a maximum of 80 stamina. Final damage for that hit is: 5 x (3 - (40 ÷ 80 x 2) = 10.
