List of Abilities
Combat symbolizes Kyrios, god of destruction. Kyrios concedes victory to those who have faith in him, but is cruel and destructive to enemies. You can use destructive attack skills in a rage to various surrounding enemies at the same time and your attack speed can be temporarily increased to a great extent through haste.
Fortification symbolizes Shatigon, god of wealth. Shatigon has the power to bring wealth and creates impregnable fortress, so strong that even you can get locked up. You can use skills to increase your health and defense or temporarily become invincible, and sometimes protect your mates by switching the surrounding enemy’s aggro to yourself.
Death symbolizes Nui, goddess of death. Nui governs the underworld and through her hands helps everyone to rest in peace. You can use the power of the dead to give powerful magic damage to enemies and make them tremble for fear. You can also freely go to death and come back to life by making your soul leave and come back to the body.
Artistry symbolizes Lucius, the wanderer who has greatest wisdom, but always hides it in his jokes. You can support your mates by singing and playing instruments. You will be needed in combat to increase moving and recovering speeds.
Conjury symbolizes Dahuta, goddess of sea and change. Dahuta grants you wishes, but the truth lies beyond, just like a sweet dream. Instead of giving direct magic damage to enemies, you can disturb or block their attack with weakening skills such as fear, sleep, float, and tie. You can also summon evil spirits.
Will symbolizes Sal, god of portal and sealing. Sal creates portals which open close up so firmly that even legends cannot exist. He controls vitality on his own free will. You can use vitality to give powerful magic damage to surrounding enemies or protect mates from magic damage. You can also seal the opponent’s skills or create portals to teleport.
