This page will hold Cleric Guild changes in DragonRealms 3.0.
Theurgy will be the Cleric guild specific skill. It will power god-related abilities and will replace the current teaching requirement.
- Incense Ritual - Wave incense at <altar>. Neutral aligned ritual that awards a small amount of devotion/theurgy. There is a dark aligned version of this that is, so far, undiscovered that requires the use of a specially prepared piece of incense. The award for the dark version is a bit higher. If you figure it out, feel free to boast.
- Playing hymns/psalms for immortal - Any song type will grant at least a small amount of devotion/theurgy now. Wedding songs have been bumped to grant Hymn level devotion, Dirge songs have been bumped to provide Psalm level devotion, and Requiem songs award more than Psalms. All other song types award a static small amount of devotion, and being at a consecrated location is still required.
- Last Rites - Must be performed on consecrated ground, Pray <dead creature>. Skinning or Looting the creature before doing this will prevent this from working. Does not work on cursed creatures.
A timer has been added between communes to prevent instant locking of Theurgy. Exact timer is currently in flux.
Tamsine's Commune now has a TM bonus vs. undead.
Meraud's Commune now consecrates a room, a number of rituals can then be performed there such as playing music, reciting, dancing, exploding beads, and last rites (new ritual). The mana boost is no longer a static setting. It now adds mana dependent on Theurgy skill, so it will boost good mana rooms much better, but very low mana rooms may not end up as good as before. The mana boost now extends to all the other mana types, except 'Arcane' mana which will take a penalty. The mana boost will be lessened depending on how far removed from the spectrum that particular type is from holy, and Sorcery skill if you have fairly low ranks of it. So, Holy boost > Life boost > Elemental boost > Lunar boost > Arcane penalty. The RT, fatigue hit, and falling to knees effects are also skill based. This commune no longer has the safe room feature, and is no longer restricted from use in random places. It can be used anywhere and is intended to be used to allow better Theurgy training while hunting (Going to altars will still be the best thing to do).
Eluned - Creates water. Hold some dirt in one hand, a container in the other and COMMUNE ELUNED. Skill in Theurgy will determine how much water is created. Depending on the climate of the area and skill, a room use water source will get created.
The quests for Tamsine, Eluned I, and Meraud will need to be redone before they can be used.
Clerics can align themselves to a specific deity. Of five possible skills (Augmentation, Debilitation, Utility, Warding, Target Magic), each deity will bonus (+) the two skills listed by 15%, and penalize (-) the other three skills by 15%.
There is a 6 hour cooldown between aligning to a deity.
These require the use of Aspects of the All-God to achieve. Each aspect can boost a skill (+), penalize a skill (-) or leave it unchanged (=).
NOTE: Alignment results using Aspects of the All-God varies depending on the caster and/or their race. Even though this table below gives you an idea, it is VERY likely you will not get the same results upon casting.
See Infusion ability.
Clerics who possess both the Rejuvenation spell and infusion may restore their own memories while dead.
See Cleric Spells 3.0.
Osrel Meraud will handle far more spells than previously.
Augmentation is a soft req. Theurgy is a hard req. Sorcery and Thievery are restricted skills.
