Introducing: The Forgotten Spellbook

Posted by
Introduction

I believe that magic is currently the least used combat style for PvE or PvP.
Magic is used to kill DKs or for Barrows in PvE and as a support for freezing opponents in PvP.
Almost nobody kills GWD bosses with magic and if you PK using magic only you either get accused for farcasting or just DDS speced to death.

The overall problem I see is that magic armour is very weak against melee attacks although magic is supposed to be the counter to melee. Another problem would be the low damage in PvE.

I saw a lot of people begging for a polypore-like weapon or a ganodermic-like armour. Releasing such things would be a terrible mistake as, in my opinion, those items were very gamebreaking.

In order to make the use of magic-only more rewarding without releasing items as polypore or ganodermic a friend of mine and myself have developed a new magic spellbook for both PvE and PvP.

The spells

Important: all numbers and % are based on personal game experience and calculations but there was no way of ingame testing the spells.

I would love if this spellbook could be the reward for an amazing quest!

Drains 15% of opponent's current run energy. (You don't get the run energy. Effective at high %, weak at low %). This spell is designed to slow your enemies down if they try to run. There is no immobilize in this spellbook because i think that immobilizes encourage farcasting and the idea behind this spellbook is that you're able to fight your opponent face to face using some effects of high level spells (see Empower Body and Empower Mind).

Spell animation: Chaos Elemental's ranged attack.

Posted ImageMeteorite (lvl 92) - max hit 6* - 1 soul rune 2 death runes 5 earth runes
Summons a meteorite crashing down on your foes.

* Max hit increases depending on the combat level of the target it hits -> combat level is turned into %
Example: General Graardor is combat level 624. If you cast Meteorite on General Graardor the spell's max hit is increased by Graardor's combat level in % -> 6 x 6.24 (= 624%) = 37,44.
This skill is not meant for PKing. Spells as the God Spells will still remain viable for killing DKs. This skill is supposed to provide a good damage source against GWD bosses or Jad. Its damage can further be boosted with Staff of the Dead or other effects making it a powerful alternative to ranged or melee combat.

Casting animation: Similar to God Spells. Skill animation: Jad ranged attack.

Posted ImageFocus (lvl 93) - 2 soul runes 5 body runes 1 death rune
Increases the damage of your next outgoing magic attack by 20%. 60 seconds cooldown.


Posted ImageCharge Energy (lvl 94) - 2 soul runes 3 cosmic runes 5 body runes
Recharges 10% of your special attack bar. 60 seconds cooldown.


Posted ImageEmpower Mind (lvl 95) - 3 soul runes 15 mind runes 10 air runes
120 seconds duration: Increases your magic damage by 15% but reduces your magic accuracy by 30%.
Stacks with %damage items.

Empower Body and Empower Mind can't be active at the same time. Both of these spells are "magic stances". If Empower Mind is active while Empower Body gets activated, Empower Mind will be deactivated and Empower Body will be activated. The same rule applies vice versa.


Posted ImageEmpower Body (lvl 96) - 3 soul runes 15 body runes 15 earth runes
120 seconds duration: While wielding a staff, a magic helm, a magic body and magic legs this spell doubles your melee armour bonuses but reduces your magic damage by 15%. With this spell you can achieve a similar armour rating as somebody in full rune or barrows if you use a shield. This allowes you to fight a 1Vs1 against a melee combatant without having to farcast. Your overall damage will be reduced but your spells will hit more often due to the melee user's magic defense weakness. You will still be vulnerable to ranged attacks!
Stacks with %damage items.

Empower Body and Empower Mind can't be active at the same time. Both of these spells are "magic stances". If Empower Mind is active while Empower Body gets activated, Empower Mind will be deactivated and Empower Body will be activated. The same rule applies vice versa.
