It's time for a teaser of the Mage Revamps! They're at a stage that I feel comfortable upping the hype... at least, upping the hype in an obtuse and silly way.
Skills work, in testing & messaging for everything. A few skills are still in the "HOW I MAKE WORK?!" phase, but that's only like 4.

Note, that's all coding. Abilities are all planned. Old things don't get factored in until I get around to copy pasting them, so the percents are tricky.
That's pretty disappointing information there. So.. here's some affliction teasers!
hypothermia: Take extra cold damage, cannot gain insulation defence, cannot cure shivering
magic_fire (temp name): Requires double mending to cure ablaze
trick_flame (temp name): Keeps track of ablaze stacks, so when you cure them, they start again from that number next time
Very planning based. Abilities alter their effects based on previous abilities or current states of the target.
The return of the Air element! Earth remains solidly held by the Sorcerer Kings.
Very give/take based. Abilities gain more power by sacrificing more, powerful passives that lock out actives.
To heck with boring elements, they're for utility skills... ALL IN ON SHADOW
(All of this is lies. I reserve the right to change things in production. I will respond to the thread's questions and maybe chime in. Successful guesses of things will be confirmed! Unless I lie.)
