What spells are available to low level (8th or lower) Wizards to deal with intelligent undead?
- Black Tentacles is great, but it is great against everything corporeal and not too large
- Direct damage is for the weapon users, we would not want to take away their thing
- Mind-affecting is out
- Anything with a Will save is less than ideal, considering it is the good save of undead
What does this leave us? Are there any efficient, low level spells designed to deal with undead?
