Slicken is a Wizard ability in Pillars of Eternity.

Coats the ground in a slick, oil-like substance, inflicting Knockdown on anyone in the area of effect.

Advice[edit | edit source]

Slicken is a good choice at first level as it completely disables many ranged enemies and casters. It can be used in melee range as well since the yellow ring of the AoE doesn't affect your party members. In this zone melee characters can attack prone enemies more efficiently due to the −10 Deflection debuff while not being knocked down themselves.

Note that with patch 3.0, many types of monsters gained immunity to the Prone affliction or to all ground-based attacks, so this spell is no longer as overpowered as it was before, but still useful.
