New Skill: Imbuing

  • Skill Title: Artificer
  • The Imbuing skill allows players to imbue items with magical item properties. The amount of skill determines how much of an item’s potential is “fillable” by that craftsman.
  • Imbuing is performed at a soul forge. The soul forge in the Gargoyle City gives a slight bonus, and the Queen's soul forge gives the highest bonus.
  • Many magical items (weapons, armor, etc) can be “unraveled” to produce a set of imbuing basic ingredients (Magical Residue, Enchanted Essence, and Relic Fragments)
  • Various jewels are used for individual item properties, up to a certain amount of intensity
  • Special ingredients added as rare drops in Ter Mur and the Abyss are used for high level intensities
  • Imbued equipment can only be used with the expansion entitlement

New Skill: Mysticism

  • Skill Title: Mystic
  • Passive Gargoyle Ability (30% base proficiency in Mysticism)
  • Uses the following reagents:
  • Bone
  • Dragon blood
  • Fertile dirt
  • Demon bone
  • Black Pearl
  • Blood Moss
  • Garlic
  • Ginseng
  • Mandrake
  • Nightshade
  • Sulfurous Ash
  • Spider Silk


Spells

  • Nether Bolt: Fires a bolt of nether energy at the Target, dealing chaos damage
  • Healing Stone: Conjures a Healing Stone that will instantly heal the Caster when used.
  • Purge Magic: Attempts to remove a beneficial ward from the Target, chosen randomly
  • Enchant: Temporarily enchants a weapon with a hit spell effect chosen by the Caster. If the Caster's Imbuing and Mysticism skills are greater than 80, the Caster may hold the weapon while casting Magery or Mysticism spells.
  • Sleep: Puts the Target into a temporary Sleep state. In this state, a Slept Target will be unable to attack or cast spells, and will move at a much slower speed. A Slept Target will awaken if harmed or after a set amount of time.
  • Eagle Strike: Conjures a magical eagle that assaults the Target with its talons, dealing energy damage.
  • Animated Weapon: Conjures and animates a weapon that selects a Target to attack based off its combat strength and proximity.
  • Stone Form: Infuses the Caster with the essence of solid stone, giving a bonus to physical attacks and damage resistance, but reducing the Caster's movement, spell casting, and attack speed. The Stone Form may neutralize poison, strangle, bleed, sleep, paralysis, and stat reduction effects.
  • Spell Trigger: Allows the Caster to store a Mysticism spell in a Spell Stone. When the Caster uses the Spell Stone, the stored spell is instantly cast.
  • Mass Sleep: Puts one or more Targets within a radius around the Target's Location into a temporary Sleep state.
  • Cleansing Winds: Soothing winds attempt to neutralize poisons, lift curses, and heal a valid Target.
  • Bombard: Hurls a magical boulder at the Target, dealing physical damage. This spell als:* has a chance to knockback and stun a player Target.
  • Spell Plague: Inflicts a terrible curse on one or more Targets in its area of effect. Each time a Spell Plagued Target hits with a harmful attack or spell, the Target may suffer a backlash of fire damage.
  • Hail Storm: Summons a storm of hailstones that strikes all Targets within a radius around the Target's Location, dealing cold damage.
  • Nether Cyclone: Summons a gale of lethal winds that strikes all Targets within a radius around the Target's Location, dealing chaos damage. In addition to inflicting damage, each Target of the Nether Cyclone temporarily loses a percentage of mana and stamina.
  • Rising Colossus: Summons a colossal stone titan that selects a Target to attack based off its intelligence and proximity.


New Skill: Throwing

  • Skill Title: Bladeweaving
  • Passive Gargoyle Ability: Deadly Aim (20% base proficiency in Throwing)
  • Added two new special moves
  • Infused Throw: The player infuses their throwing projectile with mystical power. The infused projectile will dismount the target if possible; otherwise it will temporarily stun the target. The target will be hit with chaos damage regardless of whether they were dismounted or paralyzed.
  • Mystic Arc: The thrower augments the spinning of their projectile with mystic force causing it to strike a second target after first hitting the primary target. Some of the energy used to increase the projectiles spin is transferred to each target causing additional energy damage.
  • Weapons have a base range that is increased according to the player’s strength
  • Boomerang: 4 min, 7 max
  • Cyclone: 6 min, 9 max
  • Soul Glaive: 8 min, 11 max
  • Distance from target affects the damage and accuracy of the thrown weapon – there is a sweet spot of range and power that deals more effective damage
  • This is calculated as Hit Chance penalties and Damage Reduction
  • Close Quarters Combat: Being to:* close to a target would normally cause ineffective throws. However, Swordsmanship skill can compensate for this, with Legendary skill even giving a slight bonus.
  • Shield Penalties: All throwing weapons are one-handed, and thus Gargoyles can equip shields.
  • Causes Hit Chance and Defense Reduction penalties while holding a shield. This penalty is reduced by your skill in parrying.
  • Concussion Blow: The existing Concussion Blow special move has been updated to have the following behavior:
  • 10 direct damage
  • Temporarily drains 50% of the target’s mana, restored after 6 seconds
  • Target becomes temporarily immune to this drain effect if it happens to:* often to them
