Inflict light wounds, also known as cause light wounds, was a necromancy spell that caused light damage to a creature touched by the caster.[2][9][10][11] After the Second Sundering it was simply called inflict wounds.[1]


When this spell was cast, with a touch, the caster channeled negative energy that did harm to living beings. Conversely, because negative energy powered undead, it healed them to the same degree instead.[2]

The reverse of this spell, cure light wounds, channeled positive energy[2] and had the exact opposite effect (healed the living, harmed the undead).[9][10][11]
