Hello Wizards,

Here is a thought on the spell for the 540 slot. Please give it a read and let us know what you think.

Temporal Reversion (540)

Type: Defense

Duration: 10 Minutes

This spell, as proposed here, allows the wizard to turn back the hands of time when successfully attacked physically. The Temporal Reversion effect returns the wizard to the moment before the initial attack better prepared to meet a potentially powerful, incoming assault. In practical application, this means first attack will not "count" and the creature will have to take a second attack roll at the wizard. Meanwhile the wizard automatically experiences a +200 DS boost and a dramatically heightened ability to defend against critter-based maneuver attacks when encountering this second try.

The ability to shift time is always a chancy thing. The spell would only be successful based upon:

10% + (Elemental Mana Control skill/30)

There is also discussion about giving wizards with lore training a chance to add an elemental counter attack to the automatic DS boost if they shift into Temporal Reversion mode.

Let us know what you think!

Hello, Wizards,

I am back from a short hiatus and bear good news.

The proposed lore requirement for temporal reversion has been shifted downward.

10% + (Elemental Mana Control skill/20)

Good to be back!
