Crystalism

From AchaeaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Available to the Magi class, Crystalism uses magical crystals to create vibrations which can either help or hinder, depending on the ability. Those who do not hold membership in a House which owns a Master Crystal will find difficulty using some abilities within this skill, and will have to go to the public Master Crystal in Tasur'ke and pay for crystals with gold.
