Metamorphosis

From AchaeaWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Metamorphosis is the ability to bond with the spirits of various animals, ranging from the mundane to the fantastic. To begin the process, MORPH <animal>. Once a metamporh has successfully metamorphosed, they will find it is a strain on them to stay bonded causing a greater endurance drain. UNMORPH (or HUMAN) will bring them out of the form.

The skill of Metamorphosis is available to the Druid and Sentinel classes.

Druids also have the skills of Groves and Reclamation, while Sentinels also have the skills of Woodlore and Skirmishing.

Abilities in Metamorphosis

The Basilisk and Jaguar morphs are unique to members of the Sentinel class.
The Hydra and Wyvern morphs are unique to members of the Druid class.

Cooldown: 2.50 seconds of balance
Attune Effect: {{{attune}}}
Symbol: {{{symbol}}}
Details: With this ability, you may, in many environments, burrow underground. While underground, you will be unable to do most actions. You will be able to drop, get, score, stat, def, i, burrow, and morph. As a gopher, you will only be able to burrow quite shallowly. However, once the wolverine morph is attained, you may burrow up to nine levels deep. In fact, you will find that you can burrow underneath many things that you can not normally burrow into. For example, though you cannot burrow down through a highway, you can, if you go at least six levels deep, burrow underneath it. Be warned, however, that anything which you cannot burrow into cannot be burrowed out of. Thus, if you decide to try burrowing underneath a large area which provides you no way of reaching the surface, be very careful, lest you become lost, for you will have no way of getting out. Remember, to go up or down levels, use BURROW ABOVE, or BURROW BELOW.

It is rumoured that there are other races living beneath the earth, and if you leave items buried at any depth beyond the first level down, these races may seek out and steal whatever you left deep in the earth.

Details: The gaze of the basilisk is truly terrible to behold. If your victim lacks the blindness defence, and suffers from four of hallucinations, dizziness, recklessness, confusion, paranoia, epilepsy, and impatience, you may turn them into little more than a living statue. They will be unable to do anything in this time, although the petrification is short-lived.

Note that you must be the originator of an affliction for it to count.
