Dispel Magic removes magical effects from spells, potions and some magical items (like wands) from everyone in its area of effect. It doesn't affect protections from magical items or spell protection like spell turning or spell deflection. Chance of dispelling is determined by the level of the caster of Dispel Magic and the level of the caster of the spell to be dispelled. Base chance is 50%. For every level the caster of dispel magic is above the caster of the spell the caster of Dispel Magic is trying to dispel, the chance grow by 5% for every level below drops 10%. There is always at least 1% chance of failure or success.

|“|| Dispel Magic
A Dispel Magic spell removes magical effects upon anyone within the area. This includes effects given from spells, potions and certain magical items such as wands. It does not, however, affect enchanted magical items or spell protections such as Spell Turning and Spell Deflection. The chance of the dispel succeeding is determined by the level of the caster and the level of the magic being dispelled. The base chance of successfully dispelling is 50%. For every level that the caster of the Dispel Magic is above the original caster, his or her chance of success increases by 5%. For every level that the caster of Dispel Magic is below the original caster, his or her chance of success decreases by 10%. However, despite the difference in levels, there is always at least a 5% chance of success or failure. Thus, if a caster is 10 levels higher than the magic he or she is trying to dispel, there is only a 5% chance of failure. Similarly if the caster is 4 levels lower than the magic he or she is trying to dispel, there is only a 10% chance of success. Intuitively, this spell is almost useless if the target is 5 or more levels higher than the caster.
Note: While this spell dispels the individual effects of Grease, Web, Stinking Cloud, and other such spells, it does not dispel the area of effect.
