Weatherweaving

From AchaeaWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The weather is beyond the grasp of any mortal mage, but the practitioners of weatherweaving have learned to direct where control is impossible.

Focusing upon the elemental channels of earth, water and air, practitioners of weatherweaving are perhaps less versatile in the ways that they may bend their arcane might. However, where they sacrifice such versatility, they gain in precision and power, and are rumoured to be able to unleash truly terrifying demonstrations of nature's destructive capabilities. There are whispers of those who could call lightning to strike down their foes from a cloudless sky, or summon winds able to strip the skin from bone in mere moments.

The skill of Weatherweaving is available to members of the Sylvan class, along with Propagation and Groves.
