Discussion

At Expert level, Weakness is effectively the same as Expert Stone Skin, except if any enemy troops have attack ratings below 6 (or, if the caster has a specialty in Weakness, below what the spell will reduce attack ratings by). Combining Weakness with Stone Skin or Shield (or both) can make your troops last significantly longer than they otherwise would be able to.
