Jump to: navigation, search

TRANSFER allows an Empath to take the wounds or blood loss of someone else onto their own body.

This is necessary because the Empath's healing spells are selfcast only. The act of transferring gives experience for the Empath (except in cases of transferring blood loss from patients still bleeding, or wounds from other Empaths). Empaths below level 11 have a multiplier to the amount of experience gained from healing (2x multiplier at level 1 down to 1x at 11+). The patient who is healed also receives Long Term Experience (LTE) equal to 20% of the normal experience gained by the Empath, up to a maximum 250 LTE per day for each patient.

Note that when transferring any wound, any scar upon that portion of the patient's body is also removed (but not transferred to the Empath). This is often used between two or more Empaths as a way to dispose of moderate or severe scarring, colloquially termed as a "clean up".

Empaths with 50 ranks of Mental Lore, Transference may directly transfer a scar without the presence of a fresh wound.

Usage

  • TRANSFER {character} {wound} - This will allow the Empath to specify which character to transfer from, and what wound.
  • TRANSFER {character} - This will cause the Empath to transfer blood loss from the targeted character.
  • TRANSFER {character} ANY - This will find one wound to transfer from the character, and will incur three seconds of RT. Be warned, this one also gives a lesser amount of experience because it is considered a "safer" route with transferring.

For Empaths on F2P accounts, it is necessary to first use empathic linking via "TOUCH {character} LINK" to establish a link before transferring.

Progression

This ability increases as the Empath gains levels and Empath Base spells (the lower value of the two is used). In order to transfer all wounds, the Empath must have reached at least level 10 AND at least 10 Empath Base spell ranks.

Level / Spells Progression
1 minor blood loss (increases every level to a max of 75 HP per transfer)
2 minor limb wounds
3 minor nervous system damage
4 minor head and neck wounds
5 minor chest, back, abdomen, and eye wounds
6 -
7 moderate and severe limb wounds
8 moderate and severe nervous system damage
9 moderate and severe head and neck wounds
10 moderate and severe chest, back, abdomen, and eye wounds

Transfer Effect

The first transfer of blood or injury from a patient starts a 10-second transfer effect, which refreshes with every subsequent transfer. The effect ends after 10 seconds of not healing. All experience gained from transferring is awarded at once at the end of the transfer effect.

When the transfer effect ends, the empath will automatically make an IMPRINT attempt at no spirit cost (whether successful or not).

For manual IMPRINT attempts, while the transfer effect is active, failures do not incur any spirit loss. Failed attempts without an active transfer effect cost 2 Spirit Points per attempt. A successful IMPRINT costs the normal 2 Spirit Points and will end the transfer effect upon imprinting.

StormFront

For users of the StormFront client, using APPRAISE on another character will open a window displaying their wounds (if SET DIALOGS ON has been enabled). Clicking on a wound marker in the window will send a TRANSFER command for that wound.
