A number of Major Mental and Savant spells can now be found on scrolls. At least for the time being, these spells will also be inaccessible via Fash'lo'nae's Gift (1750).

Comprehend Languages (1315):
Comprehend Languages is a standard duration (20 min + 1 min/spell rank) buff on the caster that allows them to understand, but not speak, any racial languages that characters can normally learn. At 20 ranks of Mental Lore - Divination, they can understand cultural languages and then guild languages at 50 ranks of Mental Lore - Divination.

Clarity of Thought (1319):
Provides +30 Mental CS for the next cast within 2 minutes. The duration does not stack, but the spell is castable on others.

Astral Spear (1408):
Projects a spear from the astral plane that pierces the target and has a chance to dispel a spell from the target. This is a bolt spell, so uses Spell Aiming to determine Attack Strength. The base chance for a dispel is 15% + 1% per 5 ranks of Mental Mana Control.

Displace (1409):
Allows the caster to teleport an object to or from another character. The spell works across vast distances within the caster's current teleportation zone, but also outside of it, once they have 25 ranks of Mental Lore - Transference. The recipient is prompted to ACCEPT or DECLINE sending or receiving the item. Not all items are eligible and only one item may be sent (no containers with other items inside)

Mana Burst (1414):
Primary single-target damage spell that excites the mana weave around a target and causes it to flare with multiple cycles of energy criticals. Each cycle of damage, the damage flavor is randomly chosen from several energy types. Training in Mental Lore - Manipulation provides a chance to cause a fourth damage cycle. The chance is ( Mental Lore - Manipulation ranks / 1.5) percent. The potential critical types are: Disintegration, Disruption, Electrical, Grapple, Plasma, Vacuum.

Astral Vault (1417):
Allows the caster to open an extradimensional pocket to the astral plane to store items. Base storage is up to 50 lbs with +1 lb per 2 ranks of Mental Lore - Transference.

Convoke (1435):
Allows the caster to summon another character to their room. The spell works across vast distances within the caster's current teleportation zone, but also outside of it, once they have 50 ranks of Mental Lore - Transference. The recipient is prompted to ACCEPT or DECLINE being teleported. This spell will also be live, but will not show up on scrolls. It could be available through other means in the future.

Comprehend Languages, Clarity of Thought, and Mana Burst were coded by former GameMaster Oscuro. Huge thanks to GameMaster @Gyres who provided messaging for all of these spells!
