Mysticism Revamp

  • Cleansing Winds
    • Changes
      • Cleansing Winds will now affect players in a small area around the target as well
      • Players or creatures may be the direct target of the Cleansing Winds spell, however, players in the area must be in the casters party in order to receive the beneficial effects of the spell.
      • Pets can be directly targeted, but will not receive the spell benefits as part of the area effect.
      • WARNING: This spell will flag the caster as a criminal if a criminal or murderer party member is close enough to the target to receive the benefits from the area of effect (be very careful of who you party with, especially in town)
      • This effect can hit up to 3 additional players beyond the primary target
      • The effectiveness of the spell is reduced by the number of targets affected
      • The total healing, cure chance, remove curse chance are based on the skill of the caster.
      • If a target is cured the healing they received will be reduced proportionately to the level of poison that was cured. If the cure fails, the target will not be healed.
    • Spell Plague
    • Changes
      • Spell Plague hits the target with an explosion of chaos energy.
      • The residual energy from the chaos explosion can continue to erupt when the target takes additional damage.
      • Each subsequent explosion does decreasing amounts of damage, until the residual energy has been dissipated in a maximum of 3 explosions or after a duration of 8 seconds. There is a minimum of 1 second between each residual explosion.
      • If a target is already affected with a spell plague, each additional spell plague will take effect after the previous one expires. (The initial chaos explosion takes effect immediately and can trigger the secondary explosions of spell plague)
    • Sleep/Mass Sleep
    • Changes
      • Sleep will no longer prevent targets from casting spells or attacking
      • Sleep will place the target in a state of stupor for a period determined by the caster's skills and the target's Resist Spells skill.
      • While in this state they will have their casting, casting recover, attack, and movement speed severely reduced.
      • If target receives damage during this period, the stupor effect will be broken
      • Immunity has been changed to the following scale, 3-12 second scaling by player Magic Resist skill. Player must have 30 or more resist to extent sleep immunity beyond 3 seconds.
  • Enchant
    • Changes
      • Base duration has increased
      • Duration of the enchanted effect will scale based on the level of the spell enchanted
    • Purge Magic
    • Changes
      • Players can be purged based off the immunity timer which is calculated off the skills Mysticism|Mysticism]] and focus vs the targets resisting spells skill (This value Range is from 1 to 6 seconds)
      • If the target re-applies a purged buff or buff that contains a purged buff the target can be immediately purged of that buff (example: bless after a strength purge)
      • Players must have Mysticism and focus/imbuing close to the level of the spell they are attempting to purge
      • New Effect
        • If there are no valid beneficial wards that can be purged, the target will have their mana requirements to increase based on the skill of the caster for a duration of 8 seconds. Upon ending the disruption, magic energy will rush into the target causing an explosion of chaos energy
        • The target can remove the disruption to their mana flow by doing damage to any other player or creature before the effect dispels itself. Additionally the damage taken by the target scales with how long the disruption has been in effect
        • The target will be immune to purge effects for an additional 16 seconds if they are affected by the mana disruption.
  • Healing Stone – This spell summons a healing stone into the caster's backpack which is only usable by the caster and will heal the caster instantly upon use.
    • Changes:
      • The healing stone will have stored life energy or healing points which determine how many times the stone can be used before being destroyed. (The life energy is determined by the casters Mysticism and focus/imbuing skills)
      • The maximum amount the stone can heal for in a single usage is determined by the caster's Mysticism and focus/imbuing skills)
      • The stone now has healing energy which determines how much of the maximum healing can be used at a time. This healing energy is completely consumed with each use and must take time to recharge before being able to heal for the maximum amount.
      • The cool down on healing usage for the stone is 2 seconds, and it takes 15 seconds to replenish the stone's energy completely..
      • The healing stone can now be used to cure poison. The chance to cure is based on the user's Mysticism and focus/imbuing skills. The life energy cost to cure poison is based on the level of poison. Failing to cure poison only costs 1/3rd of the life energy as curing.
      • Curing will not affect the stone's energy.
      • Summoning time for the Healing Stone has been increased significantly
