Root is a rare cantrip and spellcasters that usually gain access to all cantrips do not gain access to it automatically when they start their arcane careers. With a material component of a pinch of dirt, this spell strengthens the touched subject's connection to the ground below, bolstering its defence against many attacks, such as attempts to grapple, to trip, to make it lose its balance, or to force it to move against its will. The subject must be standing on earth, sand, stone, or a similar rocky substance and the protection lasts a full minute.[1]
