Fasthr's Reward is a reward granted by the Arkati of Liabo to Fasthr. It provides a base 50% chance for a second warding attempt after a failed warding roll against a Spiritual sphere spell, with reduced chance for spells from other spheres.

The base chance for activation vs. spells of different spheres is as follows:

  • There is a 50% chance of activation against a spiritual sphere spell.
  • There is a 25% chance of activation against a semi-spiritual sphere spell (for example, Sorcerer Base).
  • There is a 12.5% chance of activation against a non-spiritual sphere spell (for example, Major Elemental).

The chance of activation for all spheres increases with training in Spiritual Lore, Blessings.

If the second warding roll results in the spell being successfully warded off, the warding shield will dissipate (i.e., once a character has received a benefit from the spell, it must be re-cast).

When cast on others, Fasthr's Reward has a flat 2 minute duration, which is not refreshable.

Lore Benefit

Training in Spiritual Lore, Blessings increases the percentage chance of activation by a seed 1 summation of ranks. This bonus is a flat bonus applied to all spheres of magic equally. For example, if a caster has 55 ranks of Blessings Lore, they will receive a +10% chance against all spheres of magic.
