    Wow, i haven't worked it and hardly used it, but playing around with people on test... holy crap.

    Once this will get heavily used, it will be a problem i think, but just my opinion, let me lay out some spells...

    Hail storm...does a heavy amount of damage to a range of targets. if you have several people in a small area, and a few mystics run up, you can toast them all with this spell. Meteor swarm was scaled down based on the number of targets, and someone hoppin in to wither spam had to get close enough to touch them to be effective. This could be pretty rough in the future.


    Spell plague -- im not positive on this but from what i saw, it seems like you can cast this on someone and just fireball/magic arrow/nether bolt someone causing tons of consistent damage. Not tooooo overpowered, but a very effective spell.

    And this one was very interesting. 2 mages ran up and attacked a mystic on test. The mystic went into protection, and went into stone form. He then just spammed Cleansing Winds. Because of stone form the 2 mages could not curse or poison him, it was also very tough to try to sneak a paralyze in because he was already paralyzed 90% of the time trying to spam the long casting Cleansing Winds. we could not find a weakness with him until he ran out of mana, got out of stone form and tried to run, since he was still in protection chain para/poison took him down. Keep in mind this guy did not have a box, apples or cure pots. I don't know if we ever would have killed him if he did. If he had a box, the few paralyzes we snuck in inbetween the cleansing winds casting (which was about the only weakness we could go at) There may be another weakness to this, but i am not aware of it at this time.


    Sleep - 7 seconds on a char that has 120 resist, that can be removed with apples, remove curse, etc. Apples have a 10sec timer, so someone spamming this spell can toast most templates.

    Heal stone -- not too bad, just different, have to get used to people having this.



    anyone else have some thoughts/flames on this?

    Requires a lot to use though. You either have to give up resist, or use a mage weapon, which is easily disarmed and destroyed by fencer/archer templates.

    Ahh i gotcha, like i said i haven't fully tested it.


    So with the stone form protection guy. Unless you are a dexer or another mystic, he is about untouchable?


    Sleep thing, i didn't realize they put in the immunity (back to that not tested fully thing) But thanks on that one.

    The hail storm thing i don't see as a huge problem, and no my cold resist wasn't low. i was more wondering if it would be a rediculous choke point setup. Say someone is doing a harrower or a base defense and has alot of people in a small area. Several mystics hail storm them.

    In my opinion hail storm is a very powerful spell. I'm not saying it's op, but it is powerful.

    I have a Mystic/Mage/Weaver and I use hailstorm the most. It's one of the only spells left that they haven't changed for the worse. If it's changed I probably won't play that character much and its pretty much my favorite right now. So I will be very :sad4: if they do change it. I solo many things with this template so no more nerfs please!

    I've never played a Mystic until now..


    I'm never going back to just a necro..


    BOO YAH PWNANGE :)
     

  8. that stone for was me, the only reason i went out of storm form was to dump, i did die and for some reason spells were hitting me very hard...

    and yes u could of purged me out but who carries a war removal talismen, and if 2 dexxers were on my they still would not be able to do enough damage to break my stone form. unless you have 4 people attacking me your not gonna kill him maybe mana vamp but i still get mana fast enough to cast 1 or 2...

    Mysticism is clearly the fotm right now. I'm not in game to check it out right now, but can you put hail storm on a spell stone? Because if you can, that makes it even nastier.
