Evolved Shaman - Revealed!
Unmask the Secrets of the Evolved Shaman!
Shamans share a deep connection with Lore's four main elements; this is common knowledge. But there lies within the Shaman sect a core of sha-men and -women who have gone beyond, looked deeper, travelled down magical paths others dare not tread, and so are now more closely connected to the elements than their less-evolved brethren.
This is a Non-Member, Arcangrove-inspired Class based loosely on the original Shaman, but with all-new skills and a unique appearance! The art for the class is not ready yet, but we'll post pics of that as soon as we have them! This class can be bought for 2,000 ACs or, if you have already battled and repped your way towards earning the original Shaman class, you will get it for FREE!
Evolved Shaman Skill Breakdown!
2 second attack
A basic attack, taught to all adventurers.
5 mana, 6 second cooldown
Deals moderate damage and either burns your foe for damage over time or freezes your target in place, stunning them for 4 seconds. Effect increased by Elemental Grasp.
15 mana, 10 second cooldown
Deals heavy damage and reduces enemy haste while increasing yours for a short time. Effects both increased by Elemental Grasp.
20 mana, 15 second cooldown
Casts a Heal Over Time on yourself and nearby allies. Duration of the healing effect is increased by Elemental Grasp.
Rank 4 Passive
Increast INT by 15%
Rank 4 Passive
Increase Crit Chance by 8%
60 mana, 16 second cooldown
Deals light damage to target and applies Elemental Grasp, negating all target Evasion and Critical Strike chance. This effect also makes the Evolved Shaman’s spells more powerful, and gets stronger the more spells the Shaman casts against the target.
Rank 10 Passive
Small chance to greatly increase the power of an AoE ability.
We suggest using any of the Caster enhancements on Shaman, though it is geared towards Spellbreaker enhancements, since the class derives power from INT and WIS.
Starting this Friday, you'll be able to find the Evolved Shaman class being sold for 2,000 ACs at the new NPC in BattleOn for the next few weeks (along with the UndeadSlayer and Necromancer classes, each 2,000 ACs). It will also be permanently available in the Arcangrove Rep shop (though it will not require rep).
Look for a skill write-up on the UndeadSlayer class and more information on this week's release to come tomorrow! I'll leave you with a few words aimed at the hearts of any true Shamans:
Unlock even greater powers with the enhanced elemental attacks of the Evolved Shaman class! Wield these skills well and there is no telling what your connection to the magic of Lore will cause. Shamans! Are you ready to grow, to strengthen... to evolve?
