Racolus: Guess I misunderstood you. I had mentioned I was trying to build my will up because it was the weakest save of the build and that spells like hold person and otto's dance type spells were devastating to someone depending on dex for their AC. Those were the type of holds I thought you were referring to. The fear spells I've run into just prevent you from attacking, but you can still run away, and retain your AC. I haven't gone up against mummies yet, so wasn't aware their fear holds you. As a fear effect, does protection from evil give you immunity to the mummy's despair? iIve seen a trinket for sale in the AH with permanent protection from evil on it, which would be worth buying if it does.
