The Rank 2 spell in the same path, Far Sight, lasts longer (15 minutes) but at power level 1 only works out up to LONG range. But LONG range is only about 100 meters or so...hardly seems in line with the description of the spell :
Any chance this was a typo and Farsight was meant to start at DISTANT?"You can let your inner eye wander across vast distances, over oceans and land, mountains, and valleys, and see what is happening there right now. FARSIGHT does not help you find a place – you must know where it is located to be able to see it."
