Was fighting some Darcovian monsters the other day and decided to do a Shadowslayer high-level revamp. It's surprisingly easy, requires only minor tweaking.

I'll do the nighthunter some time later.


Shadowslayer
FO earth/dark class armor

Even resists to earth and dark, the rest according to the elemental wheel
MRM somewhat weak to ranged
2 hit basic attack

Trigger: Against Darkovian creatures (vamps, weres and any combination thereof) gain +15% damage.
Trigger: Against undead, zombies and werecreatures (other than werewolf) gain +5% damage.
Dowtrigger: Against anything else, deal 90% damage.

Requirements: lvl 105/120/135/150, lvl 10 rogue, lvl 10 scholar

Appearance: The same.
Description: Train with Cenara to learn how to combat the things that go bump in the night! This version is for levels 105+ only.


Level 0: Evilproof Aura - Passive
If your Class Title is "ShadowSlayer", your Statuses affect enemies of your class more easily!

Gives you the Shadow Potence status, with a potence equal to your class level.


Level 1: Slayer's Strike - Toggle
Your ShadowSlayer training has taught you to strike with more power!

All your attacks deal +25% damage (with approporiate modifiers for magical weapons and spells). This costs 12.5% sp of a standart skill.


Level 2: Healing Light - Active
Call upon the Light that opposes your enemies to heal yourself!

Ranged Healing spell. Costs SP. Uses DEX/4 for damage. Healing is multiplied by the monster's Light resistance. It gets the *0.85 penalty for auto-hitting, but not the *0.9 "always useful" penalty.

Basically, a clone of Your Body Heals at the Speed of Light, but without celerity.


Level 3: Slayer's Secrets - Passive
Your knowledge of your enemies lets you get the most out of specialized gear.

All your weapon attacks, specials and spells that have a trigger against were, vamp, zombie or undead, deal +10% extra damage. This stacks with the armor's triggers and is also applied to all Shadowslayer's active skills (Throw Weapon, Hallowed Grenade and Turn Shadow).


Level 4: Throw Weapon - Active
Select the weapon appropriate for your enemy for an extra effect!

This is considered a weapon-based skill and gets ele-comp as though it is earth element. The elecomp goes into decreased sp cost (that of a standart skill). Select one of the following:

Silver Knife - The skill deals 75% damage of a standart skill. Against were-creatures it deals fire damage. Against anything else, it deals earth. Against werecreatures, if the attack connects, then the monster can become Poisoned (Fire element, power: 1, 10 rounds). Monster can resist (Dex/Luck vs End/Luck) with -10 penalty to save.

Ash Stake - The skill deals 75% damage of a standart skill. Against vampires, this deals Light damage. Against anything else, it deals Earth damage. Against vampires, if the attack connects, then the monster can become Paralysed for (MonsterLightResist/100) rounds. Monster can resist (Dex/Luck vs End/Luck) with +0 bonus to save.

Hatchet - Deals full damage of a standart skill. Against Zombies and Skeletons this deals light damage. Against anything else, it deals Earth damage.

Blessed Water - The skill deals 75% damage of a standart skill. Against mummies and ghosts, this deals Light damage. Against anything else, it deals Water damage. Against mummies and ghosts, if the attack connects, then the monster can become Burnt (Light element, power: 2, 5 rounds). Monster can resist (Dex/Luck vs End/Luck) with -10 penalty to save.


Level 5: Call Huntragon - Active
Call on the help of your loyal Huntragon!

Calls an updated sp-costing Huntragon guest. Cast again to dismiss it.


Level 6: Mantle of Light - Active
Cover yourself in a mantle of Light that will punish your enemies if they hurt you!

Light element version of Samukematsuri Caltrops. When fighting a trigger monster, gain ele-comp to damage as though the skill is of darkness element.


Level 7: Combat Training - Passive
You have learned to recover SP after defeating an enemy of the ShadowSlayer Order!

At the end of the battle, if you were fighting a trigger monster, you have a [RoundsEquipped/TotalRounds*100]% chance to gain sp equal to [100*MonsterPower]*SPCostOfStandartSkill. This only works if the mob is ItemLvl-10 or higher.


Level 8: Silver Dusting - Toggle
Cover your weapons in silver dust, leaving the enemies of your Order vulnerable to future strikes.

All of your weapon attacks attempt to inflict EleVuln (+19% fire or light damage for one round per each hit) on trigger monsters. Monster can resist (Dex/Luck vs End/Luck) with +0 bonus to save.

This costs 15% sp of a standart skill each round.


Level 9: Hallowed Grenade - Active
Spill your blood to prove your dedication to the cause and throw this mighty Hallowed Hand Grenade at your enemy!

This is a spell-type skill that gets elecomp bonus to damage as though it is earth element. Deals +50% damage for an hp cost.

Against trigger monsters it ele-seeks between light and fire.

This costs sp of a standart skill and hp cost of a Bloodmage armor.


Level 10: Turn Shadow - Active
Paralyzes enemies of your Order! Consumes Mantle of Light for extra paralysis potency and a chance to destroy weak enemies!

A quickcast spell-type skill that doesn't take a turn, but can only be used once per turn. Costs full sp of a standart skill and deals autohit darkness damage equal to 15% of a standart skill.

Against trigger monsters this ele-seeks between fire and light and attempts to paralyse the monster for (MonsterLightResist/100 or MonsterFireResist/100) rounds. Monster can resist (VStat/Luck vs End/Luck) with -10 penalty to save.

If you have Mantle of Light active, this turns it off and the paralysis duration is extended by (RoundsRemaining/2). If your opponent is a trigger monster and 20 or more levels below the ItemLvl, you have a (RoundsRemaining)*20% chance to insta-kill it.

Level 3: Slayer's Secrets - Passive
Your training with Donovan has taught you to study your enemy before striking. You take less damage from each attack.

Lowers the damage trigger monsters do to you by 10%. This only affects attacks of the standard eight elements.


Level 4: Summon Essence - Active
Let you blade taste the blood of your foe and summon an essence inimical to your enemy. It will guide your strikes for the next 10 rounds.

This is a weapon-based skill that deals 50% damage (100% melee) of (weapon element). If the target is a trigger monster and you deal above 0 damage, afterwards you become Possessed for ten rounds.

Note: The possessing essence is chosen automatically based on the foe you face. If the foe fits into more than one category, the essence is chosen randomly.

Panther - You gain 10% chance to deal +100% damage on all attacks against werewolves.

Snake - All your attacks against vampires attempt to Daze (25% chance of inacting for one round) the monster. The monster can resist (Cha/Luck vs Cha/Luck) with +0 bonus to save.

Level 5: Call Huntragon - Active
Call on the help of your loyal Huntragon!

Calls an updated sp-costing Huntragon guest. Cast again to dismiss it.


Level 6: Cloak of Darkness - Active
Cover yourself in a cloak of Darkness that will punish your enemies if they hurt you!

Darkness element version of Samukematsuri Caltrops. Ele-seeks among the 8 standart elements if your enemy is a trigger monster.


Level 7: Combat Training - Passive
You have learned to recover SP after defeating an enemy of the NightHunter Order!

At the end of the battle, if you were fighting a trigger monster, you have a [RoundsEquipped/TotalRounds*100]% chance to gain sp equal to [100*MonsterPower]*SPCostOfStandartSkill. This only works if the mob is ItemLvl-10 or higher.


Level 8: Raptor's Gaze - Active
Like a true predator, hold the enemy in place by will alone!

This is a quickcast skill. It doesn't take a turn, but can only be used once per turn.

Pay sp equal to 50% of a standart skill and inflict Entangled (level-approporiate Dex loss until str save to break free). Monster can resist (Cha/Luck vs Cha/Luck) with +0 bonus to save.

Using this against a trigger monster that is successfully Entangled causes the monster to loose the Entangles status and become Paralyzed for one round instead. Monster can resist (Cha/Luck vs Cha/Luck) with +0 bonus to save.


Level 9: Dragon Essence - Active
Call on the spirit of the mighty Dragon!

This is a spell-type skill that costs sp of a standart skill and deals fire damage. Deals +50% damage for an hp cost.

This costs sp of a standart skill and hp cost of a Bloodmage armor.


Level 10: Embrace Shadow - Toggle
Call on the dark powers for the rest of the battle! Costs HP to power up your attacks and skills. Automatically extends Cloak of Darkness for an hp cost.

You can toggle this on, but you can't turn it off for the remainder of the battle. You also can't switch armours, since that would turn it off. This also disables you from casting Cloak of Darkness.

All your attacks deal *1.5 BR% damage.

Your heal resistance is raised to 0%, so you can't heal your hp or mp. Bloodsucker Strike and Huntragon ignore this.

You regenerate sp normally, but loose hp equal to 50% of sp gained (naturally or from other sources such as Essence Orb).

If you have Cloak of Darkness active, this automatically extends it at the beginning of every turn for one more round until the end of the battle. This costs 25% hp of a standart skill.

Shifting Tides
Water mini set with shield and weapons.


Rising Tide

Melee water sword
-3 bth lean
0-proc, so +9% damage

Effect: You start the battle with 2 Tide Charges and gain a new Tide Charge at the beginning of every turn. When your Charges reach 4 (or more), you loose four charges and your next attack with the Rising Tide makes the monster Dazed (100% chance of not acting for one round). Monster can resist (Str/Luck vs End/Luck) with +0 bonus to save. Afterwards you loose 6 MRM for four rounds.

Appearance: A single-bladed sword with the end of the blade larger and heavier (a pirate scimitar). Its blows leave behind trails of water, with the force and amount dictated by the amount of Tide Charges you possess.
Description: As the tide rises, so does your power. Daze your foes with the power of the ocean's fury!


Ever-Shifting Tides

100-proc ranged water 'crossbow'
-5 bth lean
No special-special, so +2% damage

Effect (free): This effect is akin to Forest Demon's shield, except that instead of raising and lowering the defences, it affects the damage. +25% damage to -25% damage depending on the timing of the shot.

MC is used to compress a skill like the Morningstar Crosses. 1 hit of water damage at -5 bth lean. Deals 30% damage to compensate for the Daze effect (100% chance of not acting for 2 rounds). Monster can resist (Dex/Luck vs End/Luck) with +0 bonus to save. Costs sp of a standart skill.

Appearance: A large, heavy-looking crossbow with an iron casing that looks as though it should be attached to the ship as a ballista.
Description: As the tide shifts, so does your power. Your foes would be stunned if you manage to actually hit someone with this unwieldy thing.


Waning Tide

Magic water dagger
+3 bth lean
30% proc, 3 hits

Effect: Special looses 60% melee damage (since I'm not certain how a special's damage is calculated) and attempts to inflict Daze on the monster (100% chance of not acting) for (1 round for every water element spell you have in your active inventory; max of HitsConnected) rounds. The number of rounds decreases by 1 for each subsequent special to a min of 0 (so max of 3 rounds on first special, max of 2 on second and so on). The monster can resist (Int/Luck vs End/Luck) with +0 bonus to save.

The effect doesn't reset if you change weapons, but it does reset at the end of the battle.

Appearance: A dirk. On special, geizers burst from the ground.
Description: As the tide wanes, so does your power. Fortunately, you should have enough stored up so long as you didn't forget to bring the heavy hitters.


Flowing Tide

Water shield with a focus on MRM

Effect: When you're hit by an attack, loose sp equal to 50% of a standart skill and gain 36 MRM for one round. This does not affect the attack that triggered the effect.

Appearance: A wooden shield that more resembles a plank. When you're hit, it throws up a tide, completely covering you.
Description: As the tide flows around the blows of a fool, so do you. But remember that it takes great skill to harness the power of the seas.

Saw the trailer for the new ant man, decided to turn the original costume into an actual armor.


Bug Guy

FO wind armor
MRM average
2 hit basic attack

Effect: Click on the chest of the armor to Miniaturize. When Miniaturized, you gain +25 MRM, but also are inflicted with EleVuln (+50% damage from wind). The statuses last until you click again to De-Miniaturize. The skill doesn't take a turn and doesn't cost any sp.

Appearance: Red and gray armor with an extra pair of 'legs'.
Description: Become a bug to truly bug your enemy. No, not a spider.

Gorgon Set
Petrification based wind set.


Meduser

FO wind armor
MRM average
2 hit basic attack with +3 bth lean
MC goes into compressing a weapon-based skill.

Gorgon Glare

2 hits of wind element damage at +3 bth lean. Deals 50% damage of a standart skill to inflict Petrify, Stage One. Monster can resist (Dex/Luck vs End/Luck) with +0 bonus to save. If it fails, it looses 100 Dex until succeeds on an end save. This is considered Petrification for infliction purposes.

If the monster is already inflicted with Petrified, Stage One, it instead becomes petrified until succeeds on an End save.

If the monster is already petrified, the skill deals full damage.

Cost: sp, reduced due to ele-comp


Appearance: Uses Meduso as base, but with weapon, shield, chainmail and togglable cape that uses the colors of your customized no-drops.
Description: Deep in the bowels of Castle Wolvania you find scrolls detailing the transformation of Ordred into the feared Meduso.


Fossilized Dragon's Scales

Wind shield with a focus on MRM

Effect: +20 Petrification Potency

Appearance: An uneven triangle of gray stone with a distinct scale pattern.
Description: This Wind Dragon was captured and locked in an underground vault to protect a wizard's treasure, locked away until it fossilized. The scales still hold the yearning of the dragon to see the sky once more and the despair of slowly being turned to stone.


Stonecrusher

Wind ranged halberd (counts as both spear and axe)
+3 bth lean
0-proc, so +9% damage

Trigger (+MC): +15% damage against petrified foes
Trigger: +10% damage against golems
Downtrigger: -4.25 bth against anyone else

Appearance: An old, somewhat chipped, yet delicate-seeming wind halberd with a wickedly-curved blade of whitish metal.
Description: In ancient times this polearm was used to battle golem hordes of invading wizards. It still works quite well against all sorts of statues, animated or not.

FSB: The trigger damage against petrified enemies is tripled.


Soul-Sealed Spear

Water element pet
2 hits of ranged damage at +5 bth lean

Trigger: +10% damage if you're using a spear
MC goes into no downtrigger

Effect: Instead of normal damage, this pet deals (30*YourCHA/VStat)% of the damage you dealt this round. (The 25% pet damage loss is to account for the fact that you'll use 2-3 skills or spells per battle; with an assumed 10 rounds of combat that's 25%).

Appearance: A floating spear, similar to the Badelaire guest or Haunted Sword.
Description: This spear is magically bound to your weapon, following in the patterns you set.

Spectrum Shift

100-proc light element gun
+10 bth lean
No special-special, so +2% damage

Effect: Deals seven hits. First hit is light and deals 40% of overall damage. The next two hits are wind and energy and deal 15% damage each. Then fire and ice - 10% damage. Finally earth and water - 5% of overall damage. The elecomp is used to inflcit light element EleVuln (not certain about the numbers) - and for the purposes of this elevuln all hits of the weapon are considered light (despite dealing damage of different elements).

Appearance: An old-fashioned gun. It shoots lasers that then hit mirrors around the target (invisible until the hit) and reflect in different colors (seven colors of the rainbow).
Description: Your foe relaxes when every shot of your gun misses him - and that leaves him vulnerable to the reflected beams every color of the rainbow!


Pixie

Wind armor with Spellcaster lean
High focus on MRM
3 hit attack at +5 bth lean

Effect: All your weapon attacks deal 1x damage and all monster attacks against you deal 1.25x damage. All your wind spells deal *EleComp damage.

Appearance: A small flying humanoid that zips around at rapid speeds.
Description: This little pixie doesn't look like much - but it can call upon powerful winds to scatter its foes to the four winds!

Ill Fortune Set
Defensive darkness set that punishes the enemy and rewards you for failing.


Shield of Ill Fortune

Darkness shield
MRM has a slight focus on Magic
Looses 3 MRM for the second effect

Effect: It can inflict Unlucky on the monster when you block an attack (-214.44*[hits blocked]/[hits attempted] LUK, 1 round). The monster can resist with a save at a +0 bonus (inflict with Luck/VStat, resist with Luck/Cha).

Effect: When the monster fails on a save (against Unlucky or any other effect), it takes harm damage equal to 7.65% melee (10% due to trigger and *0.85*0.9 because autohit and harm).

Appearance: A dark rectangular shield with the shadowy picture of a raven in flight.
Description: At least you're not the unlucky one this time.


Blade of Ill Fortune

Darkness melee/magic dagger
+3 bth lean
0-proc, but instead of +9% damage attempts to inflict Unlucky on the monster. Monster can resist (Luck/Dex vs Luck/Dex) with -10 penalty to save. If it fails, the monster takes -55*HitsConnected Luck for one turn.

Trigger: If monster is Unlucky, deal +10% damage.
Downtrigger: Otherwise, deal -5% damage.

Effect: If the monster is Unlucky, every time you miss with an attack, you 'consume' the Unlucky status and have a chance to make the missed attack an auto-hit. The chance is equal to (LuckLost*0.85). If the chance is above 100%, your autohit attack has a (RemainingLuckLoss/10) chance to be a Lucky Strike.

Appearance: A long, straight dagger with a darkened blade and a guard resembling the wings of a raven.
Description: This blade thrives when fighting those whose luck is lost. And if your foe is facing this blade - his luck just ran out.


Harbinger of Doom

MD darkness armor
MRM is average, slightly weak to Magic
2 hit basic attack at +3 bth lean

Takes -10 penalty to all saves against monster-inflicted effects to pay for the second effect.

Effect (Passive): Master of Ill Fortune. If you fail on a save (against any effect inflicted by monster), your next attack gets a bonus to damage. The bonus is equal to (YourLuck - MonsterLuck)/10%.

Effect (Passive): Unlucky Presence. Inflict Unlucky on the monster at the beginning of your every turn - and before the initiative bonus is counted. Monster can resist (Luck/Dex vs Luck/Dex) with -10 penalty to save. If it fails, the monster takes -120 Luck for one turn.

Appearance: A tall figure in a dark cloak resembling raven's wings. A few symbols of luck hang from the waist - rabbit's foot, horseshoe, etc.
Description: The very look of this armor warns your foes that nothing good awaits them.

Scaled Up
An earth element SPell that turn your enemy into a dragon.

1 hit of earth element damage at +10 bth lean. Deals 45% damage of a regular skill (90% melee) and attempts to Enscale your foe. Monster can resist (Str/Luck vs End/Luck) with -20 penalty to save.

If it fails:
-If the monster is already a dragon, then nothing happens.
-If the monster is dragonkin, then it gets tagged as a full dragon (and is no longer dragonkin).
-Otherwise, the monster gets tagged as dragonkin.

Cost: 60% sp of a regular skill.

Appearance: Scales creeping up your foe.
Description: The Wicked Witch of Cabbleton turned Galanoth into a dragon. You liked the idea.

Sorcerous Assassin
FO class armor.

Resistances are somewhat bad (to accomodate for Shroud of Shadows), with a slight focus on wind, ice and darkness.
MRM is fairly high
1 hit basic attack at +5 bth lean

Requirements: lvl 105/120/135/150, lvl 10 wizard, lvl 10 assassin

Appearance: Based off of Whispering Raiment, but with a bit of an arcane lean. When using Shroud of Shadows, a dark veil surrounds him, somewhat like that of Nith the Shadow Dragon.
Description: You took the art of assassination a step further by dabbling in the arcane. Buy this if you want to learn forbidden techniques like Assassin's Mark, All Men Must Die and No Mercy.


Level 0: Shroud of Shadows - Passive
Call upon a veil of shadows to hide you from the enemy's gaze!

When you win initiative, but don't kill the enemy during the first round, you gain Shroud of Shadows at the end of your turn.

While affected by the Shroud of Shadows, your armor becomes FD and you gain +24 bonus to all combat defences (MRM).

You loose Shroud of Shadows if you attack the monster or change armors.

Please note that you deal full damage of an FO armor on the round when you loose your Shroud of Shadows. Basically, you just gain the defences of FD, but not the damage unless you use a power that keeps the Shroud.


Level 1: Assassin's Mark - Active
As you stalk your target, seek out its weak points so that your next blow against it is fatal. This takes a turn.

You take a turn to inflict Assassin's Mark on the target. Monster can resist (Int/Luck vs Int/Luck) with -20 penalty to save. If it fails, your next attack against it deals +25% damage. This stacks.

Cost: 25% sp of a standart skill.

Note: This can only be used if you're under a Shroud of Shadows.

Note2: This doesn't dismiss the Shroud of Shadows.

Note3: The Mark lasts until you use it or until the end of the battle.


Level 2: Diversion - Active
Create a distraction for your foe so you can slip back under the cover of shadows.

10 hits of light, fire and wind at +10 bth lean. Deals 20% damage of a standart spell and you attempt to recover the Shroud of Shadows. Monster can resist this (Int/Luck vs Int/Luck) with a penalty to save equal to HitsConnected. If you're already under a Shroud of Shadows, the attack has no other effect (and doesn't dismiss the Shroud).

Cost: 25% mp of a standart spell.


Level 3: Assassination - Passive
The true skill in assassination is in ending the enemy before he even knows you're here.

If you win initiative, the enemy is inflicted with your Assassin's Mark at the beginning of the battle. If you loose initiative, you take 25% more damage from all sources during the first round.

Additionally, if you kill the monster during the first round, in your next battle you place two Assassin's Marks on the enemy (assuming you win the initiative). If you loose initiative, you still take 25% more damage from all sources and loose the benefit.

Note: The monster needs to be ItemLvl-10 or more for you to gain this bonus.


Level 4: Clinging Shadows - Passive
Did that shadow just move?

When a monster misses you with an attack, it's tagged with the shadows that surround you. Gain (4.25/0.15*0.9) or just 25.5 bth to your next attack. The *0.9 is due to lasting until you attack or until the end of the battle (if you don't use it).

If the monster misses while the bth bonus is active, inflict an (additional) Assassin's Mark on it.

Note: This skill is only active when you are under a Shroud of Shadows.


Level 5: Arcane Imbuement - Active
Calm your mind and let your magic flow freely into your armament. After all, in the hands of a true assassin even a fork is a deadly weapon.

Your next attack with your current weapon deals *2 damage and becomes a magical weapon (but without the *0.75 multiplier). The bonus is multiplicative to take advantage of Assassin's Mark and extends to one attack only. This takes a turn.

Cost: mp of a standart spell.

Note: The bonus is lost if you switch your weapon or at the end of the battle.


Level 6: All Men Must Die - Active
All it takes to kill a man is one well-aimed blow.

This is a quickcast skill; duration doesn't stack. Inflict Mortality on the monster. Monster can resist (Int/Luck vs End/Luck) with a bonus to save equal to (20 - #ofAssassin'sMarks). If the monster fails, it's End is reduced to zero for one round. If End is already a zero or less, the skill auto-fails.

Cost: 50% sp of a standart skill.


Level 7: Foreplanning - Passive
Because no assassin relies purely on luck.

Gain + 105 Initiative.

In addition, at the beginning of the battle you attempt to inflict Initiative Penalty on the monster. Monster can resist (Int/Luck vs Int/Luck) with +0 bonus to save. If it fails, it looses 105 Initiative.


Level 8: Going All Out - Toggle
For those that don't like to wait.

If you win initiative, you gain +100% damage to your first attack in the first round of the battle (bonus /2 for spells and *4/3 for magical weapons). At the end of your turn you don't get the Shroud of Shadows and the monster gains celerity.


Level 9: Improved Shroud of Shadows - Passive
Your skill with shadows lets you make the most out of your luck and misfortune.

If you started the turn with Shroud of Shadows, your Lucky Strike Damage is multiplied by 1.5.

Additionally, if you started the turn with Shroud of Shadows and missed the monster with every hit of your attack, you regain the Shroud of Shadows at the end of your turn.


Level 10: No Mercy - Passive
Assassin's don't leave their targets on the verge of death - they never forget to make that finishing blow.

If your attack reduced the monster to below 10% of their MaxHP, but didn't kill them, the monster makes a save (Dex/Luck vs Dex/Luck) with a penalty to save equal to (10 - %ofHPRemaining). If the monster fails, its hp is immediately reduced to zero.

This is a suggestion for the Aracknight revamp, but can be used independently as Arachnomancer if the staff has other plans for that set.


Aracknight Set
FO wind set that uses poison for quick high damage.


Reclusive Aracknight

FO wind armor with very good dark and earth secondaries
MRM somewhat low to pay for resists, focus on Ranged
50/50 chance to make either a 2 hit attack or a 4 hit attack (with tarsal claws).

MC goes into skill compression, so takes -3 MRM to pay for the effect:

Effect: +20 Poison Potency.

Endless Swarm

I really like the Giant Arachnid pet, and it's mastercraft effect. The Soul-seal Spear is neat too- I don't think there's anything quite like it in the game right now, so it'd be interesting to see.

We have class armors, so I looked at Father Time and thought - why don't I make a class shield?


Chronomancy
Light element class shield

Secondaries to ice and darkness

Requirements: lvl 10 scholar

Appearance: A round shield akin to a greek aspis. The face is completely dark with a multitude of blue, purple and white stars slowly rotating around the center.
Description: Train yourself in chronomancy and control the fabric of time itself using this ageless shield.


Level 0: Chronometer - Passive
Keep track of time - it pays to always have some in reserve.

You gain one Chronocharge on each Lucky Strike. You keep chronocharges if you switch shields or start a new battle, but loose all of them when you log out.

Chronocharges are used to power up the shield's chonomantic abilities. You can only use Chronocharges if you have celerity.


Level 1: Temporal Resonance - Toggle
Destabilize your foe's time flow with each strike until the chronons flow back, causing the time to violently stabilize itself.

Inflict Spiritual Seed (power equivalent to 20% melee, 5 rounds) at the end of every turn. The power stacks, not the duration. Monster can resist (VStat/Luck vs End/Luck) with +0 bonus to save.

Costs 25% sp of a standart skill per turn.


Level 2: Time Alter: Double Accel - Toggle
Accelerate your personal time flow, making your foe's attacks move as though in slow-mo.

Gain +18 to all defences. Costs 25% hp of a standart skill per turn.


Level 3: Deja Vu - Active
Spend a Chronocharge to draw on the memories of a future attack. Now you know exactly where to strike.

All your weapon attacks, specials and spells auto-hit for one round. Quickcast. This costs one Chronocharge (and thus can only be used during celerity).


Level 4: Chronostasis - Active
Spend a Chronocharge to isolate your foe from the river of time, allowing you to prepare for the confrontation. Costs a turn.

Inflict Stasis on the monster. Monster can resist (VStat/Luck vs Int/Luck) with -20 penalty to save. If it fails, it's inflicted with Stasis - paralyzed (or put to sleep) until it takes any damage from any source.

Costs a Chronocharge (and thus can only be used during celerity).


Level 5: Summon Aeon - Active
Summon this timeless hourglass to turn back the time of your foe.

Summons an mp-costing guest that looks like an hourglass. Sacrifices damage to inflict LevelLoss effect, akin to Granny.


Level 6: Temporal Regression - Active
Spend a Chronocharge to regress your personal time flow by one round. This costs a turn.

Restore your hp, mp and sp to what they were at the beginning of last round. Unlike Purple Rain or Father Time, this affects only you, costs a turn and can be used as many times per battle as the number of Chronocharges you have.

Costs a Chronocharge (and thus can only be used during celerity).


Level 7: Borrow Time - Active
Gather a moment from your future to use right now.

All your weapon attacks, specials and spells deal 2x damage for one turn (with the approporiate modifiers for magical weapons and spells). Quickcast. After the end of this turn, you're paralyzed for one turn.

Costs 50% sp of a standart skill.


Level 8: Flow of Time - Passive
'Time is a game played beautifully by children.' - Heraclitus.

Whenever you're inflicted with a status that has duration (not one that ends on save), reduce that duration by an extra 1 each round (in addition to the natural countdown). This does not affect statuses that only last one turn.

Whenever you inflict a status that has duration (not one that ends on save), increase that duration by 1.


Level 9: Accelerated Aging - Toggle
Hasten your foe's travel to an early grave.

Inflict Fragile (-5 End, 9999 turns) at the end of every turn. Monster can resist (VStat/Luck vs End/Luck) with +0 bonus to save.

Costs 25% sp of a standart skill each turn.
