The paladin becomes the divine incarnation of their deity. While incarnated the paladin is granted 30 Divine Energy that may be used to call upon the powers of their deity using the INCARNATE verb. Divine Incarnation has a 10 minute cooldown that begins when the spell is cast. Divine Incarnation has been updated to provide a cooldown reduction based upon the amount of unused Divine Energy. The rate of the cooldown reduction will be 10 seconds for each unused Divine Energy point remaining from the base 30 pool. Additional Divine Energy earned through training in Spiritual Mana Control is NOT counted for cooldown reduction.

The INCARNATE verb gives the paladin access to four unique abilities that drain Divine Energy from their available pool. Those abilities are ZEAL, ARMOR, SMITE and ONSLAUGHT. Each offensive INCARNATE ability incurs 3 seconds of hard roundtime and each buff ability incurs 3 seconds of cast roundtime. While under the effects of Divine Incarnation, the paladin may also use INCARNATE ENERGY to check their Divine Energy Pool.

Usage

  • INCARNATE [option] {target}
  • INCARNATE ENERGY to check the Divine Energy Pool

Abilities and Lore Benefits

Zeal

  • Cost: 5 divine energy for base 5 flares, +1 divine energy per additional flare

Zeal will cause a divine aura to surround the paladin and trigger deity specific flares upon the next 5 successful attacks made during the next 30 seconds. If time allows, additional flares may be triggered at a cost of 1 divine energy each. Training in Spiritual Lore, Summoning increases the duration of Zeal by 2 seconds per a seed 10 summation of ranks.

Armor

  • Cost: 15 divine energy, 20 divine energy if used during an "emergency"

Armor causes a holy armor to surround the paladin. This grants a 50% resistance to all forms of attack for 30 seconds. This spell can be invoked in an "emergency" situation once a day, which is defined as using the ability during a time other actions could not be performed (i.e., in roundtime, stunned, etc.). Divine Incarnation must be active in order to invoke an "emergency" usage of Armor. This ability can only be invoked twice per cast of the spell. Training in Spiritual Lore, Blessings increases the resistance effect of Armor by 2% per seed 5 summation of ranks, and the number of emergency uses of it per day by one at 50 and 125 ranks.

Smite

  • Cost: 5 divine energy drained on a successful hit only

Smite causes a bolt of divine energy to leap from the paladin's weapon and attempt to strike the target. This is an SMRv2 based attack for which the strength can be increased by training in Paladin Base spell ranks. Training in Spiritual Lore, Religion provides a Spiritual Lore Religion Ranks / 1.5 = Chance for a second Smite strike at no divine energy cost.

Spiritual Lore, Religion ranks 15 30 45 60 75 90 105 120 135 150

Onslaught

  • Cost: 15 divine energy

Onslaught causes the paladin to become consumed with the energy of their deity and carry out a vicious onslaught. The paladin will attempt to strike each target (similar to MSTRIKE, but affects creatures and players) that is present in the room, ignoring 50% of its stance. Training in Spiritual Lore, Religion increases the percentage of the target's stance that is ignored by 1% per (seed 1 * 2) summation of ranks.

Spiritual Lore, Religion ranks 0 2 6 12 20 30 42 56
Total stance ignored 50% 51% 52% 53% 54% 55% 56% 57%

[Cast 1p] Your vision is overcome by a great and endless desert. Though survival is impossible here, a promise of vengeance feeds you, quenches you, drives you. The vision clears, but the thirst for blood remains.
[Cast 3p] XXX's eyes appear to lose focus for a moment as she gazes into the distance. A bloody eight-pointed star digs itself into her forehead as if cut there by some invisible dagger, and a grim determination settles upon her visage.
[Expiration 1p] You sense yourself in the desert once more, your every sense heightened by the desperate drive to live another day. You feel the power of The Huntress wane, and your vision of the desert dissipates, but the feeling remains.
