Class - Thaumaturge.jpg

Introduction

In the hands of a skilled practitioner, thaumaturgy can be a force of terrifying destruction. At the heart of this school of magic lies the ability to call forth and command the latent aether within oneself through deep introspection. To then mold that aether into sorcery, the thaumaturge makes use of a scepter or staff, within which is housed a medium—a natural stone imbued with magical properties. Thus armed, the thaumaturge is capable of wreaking considerable havoc via ruinous spells and curses.

Core mechanics

Thaumaturge icon.png

The thaumaturge can cast fire and ice spells to inflict damage. In order to maintain MP cost at a bearable level they cycle between fire and ice.

  • Fire.png  Fire - Deals fire damage with a potency of 180.
  • Transpose.png  Transpose - Swaps Astral Fire with a single Umbral Ice or Umbral Ice with a single Astral Fire.
  • Manaward.png  Manaward - Creates a barrier that nullifies damage totaling up to 30% of maximum HP.

Thaumaturges have Astral Fire and Umbral Ice – specific effects attained upon using fire and ice spells, respectively. Each charge of Astral Fire increases MP cost for the next fire spell, while Umbral Ice increases MP regeneration. In order to maintain a low MP cost to use fire spells thaumaturges are required to use spells from the opposite element; using fire spells remove Umbral Ice stacks if there are any, or build Astral Fire if there's no effect active, using ice spells work the other way around. Transpose is a key ability to balance between both elements.
