Cure sickness is a spell that allows you to cure all forms of sickness (food poisoning and illness) and removes slime. This is an emergency spell, and is the special spell of the Healer.


While this spell is notable in the same that it is the only renewable, guaranteed method of curing sickness, it is still not terribly useful in this regard as the unicorn horn is usually reliable enough; the real utility of the spell is that it also cures sliming without wasting a wand charge or damaging your items or cloak. Another noteworthy thing is that high-level Healers with 18 wisdom can cast this spell with 0% failure rates even while wearing metallic armour without a robe.
