Any iron or
iron alloy item you touch becomes instantaneously rusted, pitted, and worthless,
effectively destroyed. If the item is so large that it cannot fit within a 3-foot
radius a 3-foot-radius volume of the metal is rusted and destroyed. Magic items
made of metal are immune to this spell.

You may employ
rusting grasp in combat with a successful melee touch attack. Rusting grasp
used in this way instantaneously destroys 1d6 points of Armor Class gained from
metal armor (to the maximum amount of protection the armor offered) through
corrosion.

Weapons in use by an opponent targeted by the spell are more difficult to grasp.
You must succeed on a melee touch attack against the weapon. A metal weapon
that is hit is destroyed.

Note Striking at an opponent’s weapon provokes an attack of opportunity. Also, you
must touch the weapon and not the other way around.

Against a ferrous creature, rusting grasp instantaneously deals 3d6 points of
damage +1 per caster level (maximum +15) per successful attack. The spell lasts
for 1 round per level, and you can make one melee touch attack per round.
