the prestige adventure skewls - sorcerer

In istaria, sorcerers are experts at controlling the minds -  and therefore the actions – of their opponents.  Because of this, would-be sorcerers need a level 20 in an adventurer skewl and 160 skill in mind – which is actually pretty convenient, when you realize that the mage skewl is the only other that gives points in mind, and only 8 per level – therefore, leveling to 20 in mage will admirably fulfill both requirements.

Because it is so powerful a skewl, there is only one trainer for sorcerers, asfendhia of kirasanct.  As you see when you speak to her, the female fiend has quests for all who join the sorcerer brotherhood.  To do so, head down the ramp from the port pad, go past the shrine and thru the arch wall, and find the trainer opposite the doorway, against the eastern wall.

I am glad we got to meet asfendhia.  Not too many more skewls to cover, but I am processing about 130 screenies for the winter party.  Will prolly have to split those up into at least 2 blogs.  It was lots of fun, as you will soon see!!

the prestige adventure skewls - shaman

just finished up with the winter party, and will be posting a blog or two about it soon.  until i get that ready, tho, let's learn about the shaman prestige skewl, shall we?

just like druids, shamans use the forces of nature to power spells.  unlike the defensive options of the druids, however, shamans are pure offense in outlook - calling storms down on their enemies, entangling and strangling foes, and turning almost beastly in rage.  therefore, shamans need to be experienced (any adventure skewl at level 20) - preferably in a skewl that provides nature skill (200 needed, best gained via the druid skewl, which requires at least a level 10 in cleric) or 200 skill level in blight, best gotten thru the hybrid skewl of spiritist, an offshoot  of mage.

there are 2 shaman trainers, one in sslanis and one in mahagra.  first, let's meet gissel in sslanis.  from the port pad, run the main road thru the gate, and head for the second hut on your right.  inside, you will find the sslik trainer, ready to tell you about becoming a shaman.

in mahagra, the shaman trainer is the half giant strug.  he is located on the very top of the northeast tower of the main fort.  head past the right side of the shrine to the entrance to the ramp up.   just keep heading up the ramp until you come to the top, then turn left.  go up the second ramp, across the walkway to the second towerette, and you will find strug inside.  speak to him to join the ranks of shaman as well as receive some quests.

 

not really sure what's on the menu for next time, either another skewl or a start on the winter party.  it all depends on what i get processed first!!  come back soon and we both will know the answer to this mystery!

the prestige adventure skewls - reaver

unlike the firefly universe's reavers, the ones in istaria are warriors who can manipulate the life force of their opponents and wound their very spirit.  as fighters, they need a two handed slash skill of 200 (as well as an adventure skewl level of 20, so both these requirements are nicely satisfied by leveling the warrior skewl); the magic using side requires a spirit skill of 150 - difficult, as you need to level a prestige skewl based on the mage skewl to get this skill.  easiest is leveling spirit disciple (which we will be exploring soon), as joining it is the easiest of the available skewls to get spirit points.

once you are ready to join the brotherhood of reavers, seek out the only trainer.  vasilion the fiend resides in the lower level of the kirasanct fort.  from the port pad, head down the ramp and past the shrine.  turn to the left as you pass under the arch wall, and vasilion the reaver is near the corner, against the wall.  the male fiend didn't have much to say to me, but he has quests for reavers, as well as entering peeps on the reaver rolls.

 

i much prefer istarian reavers, don't you?  join me again soon, to explore another interesting prestige skewl.  see you soon!
