Persuasion Spell

What’s the point of this? Seems awfully dangerous to have to cast a spell to get a target to do something mundane and normal. It’s not any easier than using mundane Perception, nor better, except that it seems to compel the target. Do you use this to send victims on fool’s errands to get them out of the way? (“These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.”)

That is absolutely what it’s for. It’s also useful for dodging (or locking in) a DoW. Whereas Arcane Kindness enhances your power in a DoW.
