We all know Escape. No doubt this little spell has helped you and your party out on many occasions. But this spell can't be cast in every area. So, in what areas can Escape be useful to prevent an entire party from a need to get raised? And when can Escape be used to take a shortcut through an area? This guide exists to help answer those questions.
