Artificing

In perfect union of a Magi's craft, Artificing combines the arcane power of elementalism and the perfect balance of crystalism to craft a mighty golem to carry out its creator's bidding.

Due to their crystalline structure, they have an innate tie to vibrations in their surroundings. A master magi can use this bond to unleash a variety of deadly effects against all who stand in their way.

Ability Description
Golemcraft Create a crystalline construct.

Most spells performed in this way require a certain crystal to be part of the golem (these are noted in the relevant ability files). However, be warned. The larger your golem, the more its presence shall interfere with your crystalline vibrations, with potentially dissasterous results. The pragmatic sorcerer shall endeavor to balance both his golem's size with the number of vibrations he or she has active at any one time.
