Evocation Spells in Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous is one of the school classes of magical spells that are featured in the game. The evocation school of magic included spells that manipulated energy or tapped an unseen source of power in order to produce the desired end. Other school categories include Abjuration Spells, Conjuration Spells, Illusion Spells, Divination Spells, Enchantment Spells, Evocation Spells, Transmutation Spells and Necromancy Spells.
A spell is a one-time magical effect. Spells come in two types: Arcane (cast by bards, sorcerers, and wizards) and Divine (cast by clerics, druids, and experienced paladins and rangers) Some spellcasters select their spells from a limited list of spells known, while others have access to a wide variety of options.Most spellcasters prepare spells in advance-whether from a spellbook or through prayers-while some cast spells spontaneously without preparation.
