The Secret World Dev Journals: Neoshaman, Magus & Bodyguard Decks

By Guest Writer on June 15, 2012

DRAGON

Neoshaman

The Neoshaman utilizes both Blood Magic and Chaos Magic to painfully extinguish the life of his opponents. He excels at doing a lot of damage to single targets, with strong Focus attacks and a host of damage-over-time effects. The Neoshaman’s ability to impair enemies, and draw the life force from them to replenish his own, increases his survivability.

The Neoshaman Deck is versatile and works well both for playing alone and in groups. Being able to impair enemies makes the Deck a good choice for player-versus-player combat, and the ability to do a lot of damage-over-time to a single target makes it very useful against powerful dungeon bosses.

Active Abilities

  • Bloodline: A Blood Magic Focus attack which is channeled for a short while to do several hits to one target. Builds one Resource for each weapon.
  • Exsanguinate: A Blood Magic Focus attack which is channeled for a few seconds to do several hits to one target. If the target is Impaired it gets Afflicted with a damage-over-time effect which lasts for several seconds. Consumes five Blood Magic Resources. Can be powered by your own health.
  • Pulling the Strings: A Chaos Magic attack which hits a single target. If the target is Weakened you gain a beneficial effect which reduces the chance to do Glancing blows for several seconds. Consumes all Chaos Magic Resources.
  • Liquidation: A Blood Magic attack which places an effect on the ground around the target. Enemies caught in the affected area will become Afflicted with a damage-over-time effect which lasts for several seconds. You gain a small heal-over-time effect on yourself.
  • Anesthesia: A single target Blood Magic attack which Impairs the target and stuns it for several seconds.
  • Helter Skelter: A Chaos Magic attack which makes you Dash forward ten meters. Targets in your path are Impaired and stunned for a few seconds.
  • Plague: A Blood Magic Elite attack which hits a single target and makes it become Afflicted with a damage-over-time effect which lasts for several seconds. If the target dies from this effect, other nearby targets also become Afflicted with a damage-over-time effect which lasts for several seconds.
