Default Grim Misadventure #122: Devoted Arkovia

We return with another Grim Misadventure! Today, we are returning to the Devotion skies, to discover just what the Arkovian gods shall bestow upon you.

Previously, we revealed that the expansion will feature 14 new Devotion Constellations. What we did not tell you though is that something is also coming to existing Constellations. Every Celestial Proc in the game will be receiving 5 more ranks, allowing them to reach even greater limits of power!

Adding to that, of the 14 new Constellations, 8 will feature brand new Celestial Procs as well, for even more options when battling the fiends of the void and the aether.

Let’s take a look at some of the upcoming Celestial Procs!

As always, what you see may change before its final debut, whether numerically or visually. Numbers on tooltips are scaled based on equipped gear and will increase with skill rank.

Alladrah's Phoenix
”A faithful pet of the gods, the Phoenix of Alladrah blazes a trail across the starry sky. “

Alladrah’s Phoenix shields you with its fiery feathers, rebuking blows and incinerating all that come too near.







Attak Seru, the Mirage
”Attak Seru was the matron of spellweaving, the protector of those daring enough to wield magic. All Arkovian rituals had the symbol of Attak Seru inscribed within the runic circle for precaution; but not even her wards were enough to stave off the effects of the necromancer’s curse.”

Attak Seru grants you the power known as Arcane Current. This clever rune appears on the ground near your foes and rapidly launches streams of arcane energy that damage enemies in a line







Ultos, Shepherd of Storms
”Ultos was the lesser of his celestial brethren in Arkovian lore, but nevertheless remained a powerful symbol, for it was his rains that allowed the harvest to grow and his lightning that caused unspeakable destruction. Somewhat ironically given his status, Ultos is the only Arkovian god whose worship endured beyond the fall of the empire.”

The hand of Ultos conjures lightning from your very being, which then cascades across the vast legions of your enemies.







Vire, the Stone Matron
”Commonly depicted in Arkovian lore as the matron of the gods, and thus the mightiest, the Stone Matron represented Cairn itself, the fortitude and strength of stone, unmoving against even the greatest odds.”

Vire conjures a stone fist from the very earth to retaliate against any foe that strikes you, turning them to stone.







Four more Celestial procs await you in the expansion. Those you will have to discover for yourself later this year!

Looks great! Looking forward to the other devotions as well - would you also be sharing their positions and costs/requirements?

Also question: how many more devotions points will we get to spend?

First thing I noticed too. Fist of Vire and Phoenix Fire are my favourites; I especially like the feathers swirling around the char with PF toggled - nice touch on top of the colour.

The fist of vire is so satisfying to watch. The rest also seems nice.

Frankly speaking, I'd prefer that the fist came crashing down from above, making it looks like it smashed the ground where it fell down...

Looking forward for all these new additions to Devotions as well.

Chain lighting! Imagine stacking Ultos on Primal Strike

I came when i saw the Hand of Ultos proc.

Wait, does that mean Assassin Mark, Eldritch Fire, Arcane Bomb, Acid Spray and every other devotion proc that reduces resists will also increase levels too? More resist reduction.
