3/22/2015 - ELEMENTAL WEAPON

Warrior Mages once again have the ability to create Elemental Weapons. This ability is live in Prime and Plat. TF will follow soon.

How it works:

• Base Ability:
• Available to all WMs immediately after joining the guild.
SUMMON WEAPON will create a Tier 2 weapon that is a template of your highest melee skill.
• This uses Elemental Charge, and is an Earth ability.
• You may TURN the summoned weapon to swap it between the two templates for that skill.
• Roundtime for all verbs scales down fairly quickly with Summoning skill.

• Metaspells:

• There are six metaspells that modify this ability, one in each book.- All metaspells require Elementalism.
• All metaspells are on Premium preview.
• Knowledge of any metaspell raises the base weapon to Tier 3.

• The Air metaspell (Quick Infusions) reduces the RT of SUMMON, SHAPE, and TURN by 4 seconds.
• The Aether metaspell (Expansive Infusions) allows you to create weapons for any skill. The syntax is SUMMON WEAPON {skill}, or SHAPE {weapon} TO {skill}.
• The Earth metaspell (Reinforced Infusions) allows the user to get additional Tier bumps from Crafting Techniques and holding a rare metal ingot*.
• The Electricity metaspell (Shocking Infusions) allows the user to create weapons that do electric damage. The syntax is SUMMON WEAPON ELECTRIC or SHAPE {weapon} TO ELECTRIC.
• The Fire metaspell (Fiery Infusions) allows the user to create weapons that do fire damage. The syntax is SUMMON WEAPON FIRE or SHAPE {weapon} TO FIRE.
• The Water metaspell (Icy Infusions) allows the user to create weapons that do cold damage. The syntax is SUMMON WEAPON ICE or SHAPE {weapon} TO ICE.

The ingot must be of a certain quality, and if it is below a certain volume, the quality will be lowered. The volume required to avoid this quality penalty scales with Summoning skill, ending at over 1500 ranks. Regardless of skill, there is always a small random chance of quality loss. The quality loss is very small.

Have fun! ~ GM Javac - That one guy

4/5/15 - ZEPHYR UPDATE

Following some recent discussion regarding the border between magic skills, Zephyr has been changed from an Augmentation skill to a Utility skill. This is more consistent with Utility doing healing effects while Augmentation primarily enhances skills and stats.
