Kaido

From AchaeaWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Kaido is a skill with two main parts to it. The first part, comprising the lower abilities, consist of an assortment of defensive abilities that rely on bodily control, such as automatic mana regeneration, healing limbs by force of will, and so on. The higher abilities relate to the use of Kai energy. After a monk has built up Kai energy by being near violent actions, they may use the Kai abilities, which are extremely powerful.

The skill of Kaido is available to members of the Monk class, along with Tekura and Telepathy. After a monk has mastered Tekura they may enhance their training with Shikudo.

Works against: Adventurers
Cooldown: 3.20 seconds of equilibrium
Attune Effect: {{{attune}}}

Details: By directing a surge of pure kai energy into an enemy, you may set their muscles to violently spasming. This will prevent them from being able to remount, as well as slightly disrupting tumble attempts(*). This ability also prones and causes some damage. The effect will fade over time.

* Each damaged limb currently extends the length of a tumble attempt; the kai surge status will increase this penalty. Tumble with no damaged limbs is unaltered.

Burst When the external will not supply.

Channels: {{{channels}}}
Shapes: {{{shapes}}}

Attacks: {{{attacks}}}
Works against: Self
Cooldown: 3.00 seconds of equilibrium
Attune Effect: {{{attune}}}
Symbol: {{{symbol}}}
Details: Sometimes there will be no simple way to take in kai energy the conventional way. Though the highest workings of kaido may be out of your reach in these situations, by sending a burst of uncontrolled kai energy outward you may somewhat mitigate this limitation(*). This is taxing however, and may only be done every so often, as well as stripping any active kai boost defence you may have established(**).

* This fills your kai to a little under half.

** Once every 90 seconds, and you cannot reraise your boost defence until this time has expired.

*** Note if you're above a certain kai threshold you can't use this ability (i.e. when it would be pointless to do so).
