Summary 0007420: Searing ray description not crystal clear on how to use it
Description I read the in-game description and incorrectly assumed I used it by casting repeatedly. I was confused when it never ended up becoming penetrating and ended up looking in the source code--turns out I had to cast it and then use the wait command.

I think it would be good to update the description to mention that the way to continue firing the beam is to use the wait command, not to recast the spell (as is done with the evokable lightning arc roc).

The interface of repeatedly pressing '.' is not good, either. It's way too easy to accidentally waste a turn with monsters beating you.

Updated the description (but I agree that waiting in place is not very intuitive, doing it lightning rod-style might be better).

Maybe have it give an ability "maintain beam" or something?
