Default Grim Misadventure #76: Shaman Mastery Pt. 2

Grim Misadventures returns with part 2 of our Shaman reveal (Part 1 can be read here). Work on the Shaman and B27 is progressing smoothly, and we are entering the final stages where we can put the build into closed testing to find any mischievous bugs. Once we are satisfied that the build meets our standards, it will be ready for its public debut. We are confident that B27 will go live before the end of August.

In our last update, we showed you some entry-level Shamanism, so now let’s take a look what a master of the wild can hurl at her enemies.

Shaman Mastery

Wendigo Totem
“Wendigo Totems represent a darker side to Shaman rituals, embracing the vicious duality of nature: one must die so that another may feed and live. Once placed, the totem will drain the life from nearby foes, all while creating a soothing aura that heals allies. To that end, Wendigo Totems were often used as wards to deter foes from approaching desirable hunting grounds.”

The Wendigo Totem serves a dual purpose. It can hurt your enemies in a large area, but it also serves as a powerful healing tool. Stand within its area of influence as it torments your foes and it will transfer precious stolen vitality to you. Bold Shamans will place this totem in the middle of a pack of foes, and bravely wade into battle knowing that the totem’s magic will protect them. The modifier for this skill enhances the totem with surges of lightning.

Storm Pact
“Unleash the ultimate wrath of nature as the air around you ripples with static energy and nearby foes are randomly struck down by the heavens themselves.”

Storm Pact represents the pinnacle of Shamanistic control over the skies. Activate this power and watch as nearby enemies are assaulted by bolts of destructive lightning. Charge confidently into battle, as the skies are your ally.

Conjure Primal Spirit
“Legends speak of a great predator, the loyal pet of Mogdrogen, which relentlessly hunts down anyone that treads into the beast god's domain uninvited. As a favored follower of Mogdrogen, you call upon this Primal Spirit to aid you in battle.”

The Primal Spirit is a vicious manifestation of the wild’s vengeance. Appearing before you as a manticore, the spirit will join you in the toughest battles, easily shredding any foe with its claws and fangs. Use this power carefully, as the Primal Spirit can only manifest itself for limited periods of time.

Primal Bond
“Strengthen your bond to the beasts that dwell within the wilds.”

As a Shaman, you can form a powerful bond with the denizens of Mogdrogen’s realm. Respect the beasts of the wild, and they shall repay you with savage loyalty, effectively making all of your summoned creatures more powerful in combat.

Many secrets still remain within the Shaman Mastery, but you will have to uncover them for yourself when B27 goes live.

Damn, I have no witty response for this.

Looking forward to that Totem, though.
