In the tooltip one attribute of the "Sword of the Bear" is "-10% attack speed". If you wanted to say, that you'll attack 10% faster while using that weapon, it should be "+10% attack speed" or "-10% attack delay" instead.
The world of the arcane sciences is a complex one, a maze of powerful secrets waiting to be found. Only those who show unwavering discipline and conviction are able to properly tread the path of the wizard. Once you take that first step, however, the power made available to you is both strong and dangerous. Wizards empower themselves with the elements of wind and water, commanding lethal storms of lightning and frost. To further harness these energies, the wizard must channel power from her magical orbs. She also adorns herself in light robes to keep herself agile and out of harm’s way.
As humans are incapable of safely conducting the magical energies of the world, wizards utilize arcane orbs to store their power. Each wizard has three orbs representing storm, water and the cold. As a wizard casts spells, the energy quickly bounces from whatever source to another, and finally into the orb representing that spell’s element. Eventually, the orbs become full, and must be emptied through a powerful spell invoking the energies preserved. These spells range from lightning storms to hurricane vacuums to freezing blizzards.
As a wizard, you are the most versatile class in the game. When building your class, you can choose to synergize each of the three orbs or focus on one. Each orb follows a different playstyle, offering four diverse spells.
The Wizard Uncovered
Playing as a wizard depends on your orb and build. You will notice that the Storm Orb gravitates around long-range, area of effect damage, while the Cold Orb blesses you with the swiftness of the winds, making you a master of mobility and control accelerated by incredibly low cooldowns. Both are geared towards damage and stuns or knockbacks. The Water Orb, however, takes on a supportive role. While you pound your foes with freezing gusts and ice, you are able to cleanse allies of their afflictions and help them recover with quickly cast area of effect skills.
Unleashes a maelstrom upon an area, stunning and damaging foes struck by lightning.
Maelstrom is the orb skill for the Storm Orb. It has extreme damage dealing potential.
Conjures a storm of circling wind in an area, sucking in foes and lowering their magic resistance.
Tempest is the orb skill for the Cold Orb. It could be used as an escape mechanism for yourself or even stall foes so allies can recuperate.
Calls upon a chilling blizzard, pelting foes around you with piercing blades of ice.
Blizzard is the orb skill for the Water Orb. It is very useful if your tank is dead, or your party is ranged.
Nice post format.
Also, the Wizard seems kickass. Though, could you mix the powers of the orbs, like progress halfway through another and do another instead of just focusing on one?
Or you'll purely be an elemental wizard?
All orbs are active at all times, so yes you can mix and match for different combinations. However, this would slow down the rate which you gain power in each orb but if your build is good enough timing when you get enough power for an orb skill could make or break a battle.
I have decided to update the wizard post with all skills so you guys can start thinking about ways of combining them all. Glad you all liked it! :)
Witch, Wizard, Warlock, none of these are gender specific, though they generally seem to be. Enchanter/Enchantress, Sorceress/Sorcerer have their genders, but witch, wizard, warlock, etc. do not. A male can be a witch, and a female can be a wizard.
Wizard - One who practices magic; a sorcerer or magician
Witch - A believer or follower of Wicca; a Wiccan.
To cause, bring, or effect by witchcraft.
It is nice to see a new class implemented, especially another caster. I like the variety this class has, ranging from it's different elemental fields to it's capablities of AoE. Glad to see your still working on this, and that huge progress (Like this Wizard) is being implemented. I was beginning to get worried after a couple weeks of inactivity :P
