Crystalism

From AchaeaWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Crystalism is a powerful skill which involves using magical crystals to create vibrations. These vibrations may be single-use or, more commonly, persistent and room-based. In order to set up a vibration, one must first obtain crystals from the Master Crystal of their House using the refine ability. Once a Magi has crystals they can spin them and finally embed various powerful vibrations. Some vibrations will affect only the Magi, some will affect only the Magi's enemies, and some will affect everyone in the room.

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 the crystal caverns of Tasur'ke.

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