The first power in the upcoming Celestial power set to be released this October with Champions Online's first major game update, Blood Moon, has been revealed today on the game's official website. The first power is, naturally, the set's energy builder and is called "Radiance".
Radiance will have some interesting quirks when compared to other energy builders, namely that it will damage enemies as normal, but will also heal allies if you target an ally with it. There is a caveat however, the energy building aspect of the power will not build energy when used on an ally unless it is actually healing damage on that person.
Energy Generation, Ranged Dimensional Damage, Heal Ally
Radiance fires bolts of dimensional energy at your target, healing your friends and destroying your foes.
- If targeting foe: Single target dimensional damage
- If targeting ally: Heals target
- Generates energy
- If targeting ally: Only generates energy if damage is healed
The developers have previously hinted that the theme of the set would be a kind of two-sided coin this way, and the first power revealed certainly follows along that theme very nicely.
