Greater Sanctuary stops things from attacking you.

Without checking, Sanctuary does pretty much the same - but it has a save to be denied instead.

Command Guide

Take a look before asking your questions!

It has the same effect as greater sanctuary albeit:

It has a will save, if a creature passes, they can still target you.
It can be cast on anyone, not just self-cast.
It has a longer duration.
It's lower on the breach list.

As it has a save, and Arelith is famous for enemies having absolutely ridiculous saves, it is a useless spell after lvl 5.

The save is only on casting though, isn't it? I vaguely remember it being possible to use sanctuary while out of range, denying enemies a chance to save, then run past said enemies.

I'll test later if no one has confirmed or denied by the time I get home.

As far as my own experience warrants, if you cast it out of range of hostiles they don't get visible saves in the combat log. cast it at a transition, ignore things until the next transition. your own experience may vary, I never used it in high level areas
