Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range touch
Target creature touched
Duration 1 hr/level
Saving Throw Will negates
Spell Resistance yes

You designate a single target within range. If the target fails to make a Will save, you siphon off a number of the target’s ranks in a single designated skill. You gain up to 4 skill points + 1 point/2 caster levels (or the target’s ranks if lower), increasing your own ranks in the skill by this amount for the spell’s duration, and dropping the target’s skill ranks by this amount for the same duration. You can only have one skill boosted by this spell at one time, and if you designate a skill that they do not possess ranks in, the spell fails.
