Artificing

From AchaeaWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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.

The skill of Artificing is available to members of the Magi class, along with Elementalism and Crystalism.

Details: The creation of crystalline constructs is a closely guarded secret of those that practice Artifice. With this knowledge, you are able to create golems from refined crystals to serve you.

Using the golem as a focus, you are able to perform spells that would otherwise be impossible. 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 disastrous results. The pragmatic sorcerer shall endeavour to balance both his golem's size with the number of vibrations he or she has active at any one time.
