Dominion

From AchaeaWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Dominion is a blade-wielding, hound-summoning school of abilities purloined from the chivalric traditions of traditional knighthood for the use of Chaos warriors. The spread of the skill compasses taming the hounds of Lycantha, mastering the various types of bows, and an assortment of aggressive supplemental battle abilities ranging from howling or engaging an unlucky opponent and boosting one's prowess with the fury of the eldritch horror.

The skill of Dominion is available to members of the Unnamable class, although it shares most of its arts with Valour, Discipline, and Malignity skills of Paladins, Runewardens, and Infernals. Like the other warrior-classes, Unnamables train in Weaponmastery, but the eldritch skill of Anathema is unique to them.
