This spell is just agonizing. It's not fun at all, that's the problem. I'm fine with dying because of saves, but it's the way it's done that angers me. Yes, let's have me stand still here for 45 seconds, that really lets me enjoy the quest. Even if I don't die it's a 45 second abrupt break from doing anything.
Pretty bad design, that. It robs the player of agency entirely.
