Smoke Cloud is an Ancient Magicks combat spell requiring a Magic level of 74 to cast. The quest City of Senntisten must be completed to cast this spell.

When cast on a target, the spell will increase their damage received from critical hits and increases the damage cap from critical hits against them for 120 seconds. For Magic attacks, the critical hit damage will be increased by 15% and the critical hit damage cap will be increased by 12%. For Melee and Ranged attacks, these will be increased by 6% and 4.8%, respectively (only 40% of the increase given to Magic attacks).

This hex is particularly powerful when combined with Biting 4, a Reaver's ring, and an active Erethdor's grimoire as the forced critical hit rate is at 25% (or 25.8% for Biting 4 installed on level 20 augmented gear).
