This one was the most difficult of the Tier 2 classes to make. As it stands now, the current non-revamped Wizard class is probably the most powerful by a very wide margin, thanks to the sheer brokenness of its Imbue with Lore ability. I've tried to keep this Wizard class faithful to the current one for the most part, without pushing it too far.
Part of this was that I've made it so that you can only use one element at a time, which I feel is a good compromise to ensure that you don't just have every mage character filling their inventory with each elemental variant. Plus it makes sense: a specialist wizard is a specialist for a reason, an element wouldn't be a specialty if you were just as good at using every other element.
Generalist's Robes (+ elemental variants)
Wizard class armor.
You must be a level 10 Mage to train as a Wizard. When you become a Wizard, you choose what element you want to specialize in; you cannot use the abilities of Wizard armors not of that element. However, Wizards of any specialty can use the Generalist armor. While Jackel Sano will let you change your elemental specialty if you wish, doing so costs gold.
Neutral-lean armor. Flat resists for generalist robes, resists follow elemental wheel for elemental variants.
Average MRM, with priority Magic > Ranged >> Melee
Standard attack is one hit with a neutral BTH lean.
Appearance: Ornate, wizardly robes with a flowing cape and pointy hat, with the generalist being mainly blue and the elemental variants having elemental flourishes. Should look somewhat similar to the current armors. Your weapon and shield appear below the menu, and your standard attack instead has you shoot a blast of elemental energy with a wand.
Description: The robes of a Wizard (/Pyromancer/Hydromancer/Aeromancer/Cryomancer/Geomancer/Dynamancer/Lumenomancer/Tenebromancer), a powerful (element) mage that draws their magic from the Ethereal Realm.
Level 0: Arcane Specialty - Passive
Years spent studying alone have left you physically frail but magically powerful. Your defenses are reduced, but your [element] spells deal extra damage.
You get -3 MRM. In return, your spells deal +15% damage. For elemental variants, your spells deal +25% damage instead, but only for spells of that element.
Calc: 100% bonus over ten turns, /2 for expected # of spell casts, /2 for affecting spells. For generalists, this is multiplied *0.6 for being omni-elemental.
Level 1: Spell Focus - Passive
A wizardís weapon isnít a stick to hit people with, but a tool to use magic more efficiently. Your weapon attacks are less powerful, but your spells will return a portion of damage as MP.
Your weapon attacks deal -5% damage. In return, your spells will return (15 * 1.5 / 0.85)% of the damage dealt as MP. For elemental variants, the MP regain is (25 *1.5 / 0.85)% instead, but only for spells of that element.
Calc: Same as the calc for the level 0 ability, but *1.5 for converting to MP and /0.85 for expected hit rate.
Level 2: Mana Absorption - Passive
Absorb mana from your foe every time you get hit by a magic attack.
Whenever you get hit by a magic attack, you gain MP equal to (15/1.4/0.85)% of the damage dealt.
Calc: 5% mastercraft bonus, *2 for magic damage restriction, *1.5 to convert HP to MP, then /1.4 and /0.85 for expected monster damage and hit rate.
Level 3: Ethereal Blast - Active
Channel a portion of the Ethereal Realm's power for a blast of your weapon's element! (/of the [element] element!)
Spell-based skill. Costs 20% of the MP of a standard spell. Your character brandishes their weapon and summons a blast of raw magic, dealing 2 hits of magic damage.
For generalist robes, the spell deals damage according to the element of your equipped weapon. For elemental variants, the element is locked to that armor's element. The spell deals damage equal to a standard melee (so +25% the damage of a standard magic weapon attack), multiplied by elecomp for the elemental variants.
Level 4: Summon Elemental - Active
Summon a spirit of raw mana to attack your foe for Harm (/[element]) damage!
Summons a Mana Elemental guest, an MP-costing guest that deals two hits of Harm damage at a neutral lean, with a -10% damage penalty. For the elemental variants, the mana elemental is replaced with an [Armor Element] Elemental, which deals damage of the armor's element with no penalty.
Level 5: Advanced Metamagic - Toggle
Enhance your spells with a variety of powerful effects! Only one may be used at a time.
Brings up a menu of toggles. To fit the skill compression, each costs 10% melee in SP per turn. Only one may be used at a time.
Heightened Spell - Grant your foes disadvantage against saving throws inflicted by your [element] spells!
While toggled, your opponent gets -7.5 to any saving throws inflicted by spells. For elemental armors, this is increased to -12.5, but only affects spells of that element.
Sacred Spell - Call upon the power of The Elemental Lords (/The [Element] Lord) to bypass your opponentís elemental resistances with your [element] magic!
While toggled, your spells will always deal damage as though your opponent had 97.5% resistance to that element. For elemental robes, spells deal damage as though your foeís resistance was 102.5%, but only for spells of that element.
Calc: Pseudo-harm damage gives 100% resistance, -10% for always-useful penalty. Resistance is then increased by MC bonus for spells.
Guided Spell - Give your [element] spells increased bonus to hit, at no penalty to their damage!
While toggled, spells gain +6.375 BTH. For elemental armors, spells gain +10.625 BTH, but only for spells of that element.
Intensified Spell - Make your spells even more powerful, without sacrificing accuracy!
While toggled, your spells deal +7.5% damage. If youíre using an elemental armor, spells deal +12.5% damage instead, but only for your armorís element.
Level 6: Dharana - Active
Draw from the power of the Ethereal Plane to replenish your mana! Usable once per turn, and doesn't take a turn to use.
Quick-cast, once per turn. You spend SP equal to 137.5% of a melee attack, and gain mana equal to that of a standard spell. For elemental robes, cost is instead 125% melee in SP. The cost is increased by *1.25 each time itís used in a single battle.
Calc: 125% melee base cost, *1.1 cost for being omni-elemental. For elemental robes, you're expected to mainly use spells of your armor's element, so no cost reduction. The increased cost per use is a balancing mechanic, similar to the Mind and Time Zfinity Gauntlets.
Level 7: Sage Defense - Toggle
Spend mana to increase your defense (against [opposite element]!)
Costs 15% melee in MP per turn. When active, you take -(13.5/1.4)% damage from all attacks. In the elemental variant armors, you instead take -(15/1.4)% damage from attacks, but only from attacks of the opposite element to your armor.
Level 8: Sageís Wisdom - Toggle
Focus your will on the Ethereal Plane and become one with the cosmos, increasing your INT for a small MP upkeep.
INT drive, costs MP.
