Weaponmastery

From AchaeaWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Masters of melee weapons, knights with the weaponmastery skill are a force to be reckoned with against their fellow adventurers and denizens alike. Weaponmasters can select a specialisation based on the weapons they wish to use, either dual cutting, dual blunt, two-handed, or sword and shield.

The skill of Weaponmastery is available to to members of the three knight classes: Infernal, Paladin, and Runewarden.

Knights share many chivalry-derived abilities through Discipline, Dominion, Malignity and Valour though each also have their own unique skill; Infernals command the dark art of Oppression, Paladins wield the holy power of Excision, Runewardens possess the mystical talent of Runelore, and Unamables employ the otherworldly forces of Anathema.

Channels: {{{channels}}}
Shapes: {{{shapes}}}
Transitions: {{{transitions}}}
Attacks: {{{attacks}}}
Works against:
Cooldown:
Attune Effect: {{{attune}}}
Symbol: {{{symbol}}}
Details: This ability works to automatically increase your damage and accuracy with a shortsword. Be warned that it will only work when you're wielding a shortsword.
Specialise Gain proficiency in one of the schools of weaponry. Lessons: 22

Required:
Channels: {{{channels}}}
Shapes: {{{shapes}}}
Transitions: {{{transitions}}}
Attacks: {{{attacks}}}
Works against:
Cooldown:
Attune Effect: {{{attune}}}
Symbol: {{{symbol}}}
Details: The decision to specialise in a specific school of weaponry shall dictate the rest of your growth as a knight. You shall learn abilities specific to your chosen school as you progress further in weaponmastery.

The different schools are:

Two handed: a style which focuses on single, powerful blows with warhammers and bastard swords.
Sword and shield: a style that focuses on combination attacks, balancing offense and defence.
Dual cutting: a style that focuses on wielding two bladed weapons simultaneously. Typically based around swifter strikes to overwhelm opponents.
Dual blunt: a style that focuses on wielding two blunt weapons simultaneously, and generating momentum to unleash exceptionally damaging strikes against an opponent.

Note: you may switch your specialisation, but it shall cost you 100 lessons each time that you do so (outside of your initial selection).

You must have the selected venom in a vial in your inventory. In order to get rid of the venoms on a weapon, simply WIPE <weapon>.
