Subject: Paladin Spell Updates: Crusade Released!

I'm pleased to announce that Crusade has been released! The details are below, enjoy!

This spell grants the Paladin and his group heavy damage weighting for both bolt and physical attacks. Training in Spiritual Lore, Blessings will increase the damage weighting effect. In addition, successful attacks have 10% chance that a deity specific flare will occur after the attack. Training in Spiritual Lore, Religion increases the odds of the flare triggering at the rate of 2 * seed 2 summation of lore ranks. Group members who share the same deity alignment with the Paladin with gain an additional 5% bonus to their flare chance.

This spell is taxing on the Paladin. Attempts to recast it more often than every 3 minutes will cause subsequent casts to cost 9 additional mana than the previous cost. i.e. If a Paladin casts this spell 4 times, once every minute, the scaling mana cost is 18, 27, 36, and 45 mana.

Your prayers have not gone unnoticed!

On review of Crusade (1618) it was determined the increasing mana cost was not quite aligned with the benefit of the spell. Crusade has been changed to a fixed cost (18 mana) 60 second duration spell and will no longer have a cooldown period in which mana costs increase.
