Aethereal pathways are a Warrior Mage ability that manipulate targeted magic spells in various ways.
PATHWAY LIST - Lists out which Aethereal Pathway abilities you know
PATHWAY FOCUS <pathway> - Starts the pathway ability you specify.
PATHWAY CHECK - Displays which pathway ability you currently have active.
PATHWAY STOP - Ends whichever Pathway ability you may be using.
PATHWAY SENSE - Lets you sense your charge level.
Your ability to manipulate pathways is based on your elemental charge. Similar in concept to a mana pool, your charge drains constantly as long as a pathway is active; thus, you don't want to keep a pathway focused unless you are actually casting spells with it, and should stop the pathway when you take a break from casting.
Before you can manipulate pathways, you must ALIGN to an element and build charge.
