Shoots a death missile at the selected target up to 3 square meters away. If no target is selected, the damage is focused on the single square right in front of the caster.
One of the most often used spells when fighting creatures vulnerable to death damage, as it deals relatively high damage and costs very little mana.
Death Strike used to be called Force Strike, and it caused physical damage. The required level to learn it was 11, and the cost was 600 gp. The spell has been available in its current form since Winter Update 2007. Before the update it could not be cast at a target. It was also available to druids, but now they use Physical Strike instead.
