Roars (2.0)

From elanthipedia
Jump to: navigation, search


A Barbarian has at their disposal the ability to use roars to intimidate or disable an enemy, or to inspire an ally. Roars which act upon foes are generally referred to as Intimidation Roars, while roars that bolster the Barbarian's allies are referred to as Battle Cries.

Beginning at 5th circle, a Barbarian can learn a new roar every ten circles from one of the various Barbarian guildleaders.

Use

Roaring is done using the ROAR command.

The primary statistic for enhancing Roars is Charisma, though Strength, Stamina, and skill with the weapon in hand may play a part in some Roars. See specific entries for non-standard enhancements. The ratio of people within your group compared to the number outside it will affect the strength of your roar; the more allies you have the more potent your fear, but the more enemies you face, the less you intimidate. In addition, combat range and your position also will enhance or penalize your attempts, with closer enemies and overwhelmed enemies being more susceptible to your attempts.

Voice recovery time may be improved with the Vocals skill, however, this is a minor effect, with the maximum bonus to recovery occurring at about 100 ranks in Vocals..

Roars may be additionally boosted with the use of Berserk Nightmare, Roar Helms, or Warpaint, and defended against with Roar Cloaks.

Restrictions

Corporeal undead are highly resistant to Roars, and incorporeal undead are completely immune.

Roaring within the boundaries of many towns is considered a crime and will garner warrants for Disturbing the Peace.

It is currently impossible to unlearn Roars and Battle Cries, although it is possible that a system for rechoosing Roars may be made available in the future.
