Wish is one of the mightiest spells an arcanist can cast. By simply speaking aloud, one can alter reality to better suit them. Even wish, however, has its limits.
A wish can produce any one of the following effects.
- Duplicate any arcanist spell, provided the spell is not on another path’s spell list.
- Duplicate any arcanist spell, even if it is on another path’s spell list.
- Duplicate any other spell, including divine spells.
- Undo the harmful effects of many other spells, such as geas/quest or insanity.
- Create nonmagical items.
- Create magic items, or add to the powers of an existing magic item.
- Grant a creature abilities.
- Remove injuries and afflictions. A single wish can aid one or more creatures, and all subjects are cured of the same kind of affliction. For example, an arcanist could heal all of his and his companions damage they have taken, or remove all poison effects from everyone in the party, but not do both with the same wish.
- Revive the dead. A wish can bring a dead creature back to life by duplicating a resurrection spell. A wish can revive a dead creature whose body has been destroyed, but the task takes two wishes, one to recreate the body and another to infuse the body with life again.
- Transport travelers. A wish can lift one or more creatures from anywhere on any plane and place those creatures anywhere else on any plane regardless of local conditions. An unwilling target may negate the effect.
- Undo misfortune. A wish can undo a single recent event.
- Return a Forsaken to mortal life. It can restore them into a living human or high elf.
- A wish can restore a reincarnated character to his or her original form.
An arcanist may try to use a wish to produce greater effects than these, but doing so is dangerous. The wish may pervert his intent into a literal but undesirable fulfillment or only a partial fulfillment.
