Summons a whirlwind to fight on your behalf.


Performing this ritual causes a whirlwind to form, its composition depending on where it is summoned (There are at least 350 different types, ranging from leaves, to cat fur, to metal fragments, to pure faith, to the good old dust devils). Trying to summon another minion may lead to dust devils you've summoned slipping out of your control and dissipating. Dust devils will join you in combat as they will 'assist', and can also be "order"ed to attack. Doing so will cause you to become involved in the combat as well.

Dust devils reduce the amount of xp you will get from kills, though this may be countered by the ability you will have to kill things tougher and in less time. Dust devils are unable to protect and mediocre at dealing damage, so their use is limited.

The progression of the sizes is: Tiny, small, average, large, huge, gigantic, colossal, enormous, humongous, and unbelievably large.

You can refer to a specific priest's dust devil by prefacing "devil" (or "whirlwind", "summon", "minion", "creature") with the priest's name.

Help File

This ritual summons a dust devil to follow your orders. It will attack if ordered, though not the servants of gods. It will not protect or defend the priest summoning it. A priest can only control two dust devils at a time. Performing this ritual requires use of a holy symbol consecrated to your deity.


> perform dust devil

You find it more difficult to perform dust devil because you are a creator. However, this is mitigated by the fact that you are a creator.
You raise your hands, and swirl them about.
You speak the holy word of Fish.
You summon a dust devil.
Use "order" to command it.
The wind picks up a bit and starts swirling. Dust and debris in the area come together to form an unbelievably large whirlwind of leaves.

Skills Used

Both skills affect the size and hitpoints of dust devils. Either or both skills may affect dust devils' fighting abilities and perception.

Base GP Cost

50/70/90/... GP

The gp cost depends on the number of dust devils you are already controlling.

Forms of dust devils

As the name suggests: most of the time a dust devil will consist of, erm, dust. However, there are at least 350 different forms, and the following list is an attempt to record them - just in case you fancy a specific looking one, go to the location specified (some may be found in various locations. You might have to perform dust devil more than once on that location, as only every 2nd or 3rd performance of this ritual produces a "non-dust" dust devil.

Note: 1) variations of the same dust devil to not seem to count multiple times towards the related achievements. For example creating ten whirlwinds different coloured fluff does not register as creating ten whirlwinds from different materials for the purposes of the achievment. 2) some forms can occur in a fairly big area (i.e. in several places within a big city (e.g. pebbles), others are limited to a specific building or room (e.g. see various forms occuring in Alchemists' Guild, AM).
