Clarifications on Calls Updated 2014

Postby Ben » Thu Mar 27, 2014 1:48 pm

Pure, Null and Overchannel no longer exist.

Pure Shard
Pure Shard is Immune to all magic.
If you have Pure Shard about your person you cannot use essence and you are immune to all essence used on you. You also cannot use magical items and effectively have 0 essence for the purpose of Sense Power, Share Power etc.
Pure Shard has no effect on Serkanian chi or Psychomancy.
If you are a magical creature (Fey, Elemental, Elf, Demon, most unique races) being near Pure Shard hurts and touching it burns.
Discarding the Pure Shard makes you instantly vulnerable to negative effects but you remain unable to use essence and immune to positive effects for 5 minutes.
If you are struck by Pure Shard it will dispel your most powerful active spell (if applicable).
If you take damage (after armour/dex is taken into account) then you cannot use essence for 30 seconds (this is not cumulative, it's 30 seconds after the last time you were hit).
Dodge and Cheat Death take place before you are hit so you can use essence to avoid the blow thus avoiding both of the above.

Pure Shard does double damage to demons, elves, fey and other magical creatures.
Star Tear does double damage to werewolves.
Gravenail does double damage to undead.
Boltab does double damage to vampires (as does Pure Shard, Gravenail and Light...)

"Rift" as a call means that the spell/blow/effect ignores immunities only. Resistances can be applied as normal.

So the call for when you are using the overchannel spell is "Rift" then spell verbal ?

Got rid of "Magic Dart/Bolt/Strike" from meta specialist perk and replaced with Rift. Got rid of Overchannel and replaced with Rift.
