This spell keeps the caster, another being, or an
object from getting wet. It offers protection against
water in liquid form—saltwater as well as fresh. It does
nothing against corrosive acids and poisons, however,
even when they’re diluted in water. Further, the spell
has no effect, either good or bad, upon creatures from
the Elemental Plane of Water.
A living recipient can walk through a pouring rain,
dive into a pool, or stand beneath a waterfall, and he’ll
still emerge with dry clothing and every hair in place.
The spell does not prevent drowning. Nor does it
enable the recipient to breathe underwater or swim if
he could not do so before. It does, however, keep the
recipient and everything on him dry for one day.
When cast upon an object, waterbane renders it
completely watertight for a period of one day per level
of the caster. For instance, a grain barrel protected
with waterbane can be cast into the sea, and then wash
ashore several days later with its contents completely
The material components of this spell are a bit of
wax and some paper.
