Associated School: Evocation
Replacement Powers: The following school powers replace the intense spell, force missile and elemental wall powers of the evocation school..
Sacred Flame (Su): When you cast a spell that deals fire damage, half of the damage results from this sacred energy, while the rest is normal fire damage. At 20th level, you can choose to make fire spells deal no fire damage at all, instead dealing full normal damage derived from sacred power. You can choose not to use this ability—for example, if your spell targets a creature that is vulnerable to fire (such as a creature with the cold subtype).
Holy Light (Su): Starting at 1st level, you can unleash a flashing ray as a standard action, targeting any foe within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack. This ray deals 1d4 points of damage + 1 for every two wizard levels you possess. In addition, the ray causes undead to be blinded for 1 round. Undead with more Hit Dice than your wizard level are dazzled for 1 round instead. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Intelligence modifier.
Smiting Spell (Su): At 8th level, as a swift action, you can use sacred power to imbue a spell with a holy might, gaining a +4 bonus on caster level checks to bypass the spell resisitance of evil creatures with that spell, and the spell’s damage is increased by 50% against evil creatures (as if you had applied the Empower Spell feat to it). In addition, evil creatures take a –2 penalty on their saving throws against a smiting spell. If you also apply the Empower Spell feat to your smiting spell, it deals double damage (+50% twice) to evil creatures. This ability have no effect on a nonevil creatures. You can use this ability once per day at 8th level, and an additional time per day for every four levels beyond 8th.
