The Tempest of Set is a priest class available to Stygians. Tempest of Set spells range from group healing to poisons to AoE attacks. For a list of spells, refer to the Tempest of Set spell list


Description Edit

These priests wield the awesome destructive might of Set, the snake god of Stygia.

This elder god, ancient when man was young, rewards his most faithful disciples with mighty powers, such as lightning strikes that can tear the tops from mountains or lay waste to entire regions.

These followers of Set are renowned for the obliteration and ruin that follows in their wake, but like other priests they have the power to heal en masse and restore life. As well as a variety of martial weapons, light armor, and shields, they can also wield magical talismans in the form of ancient tomes or the hearts of slain monsters.

Gameplay Edit

Beside powerful (AoE- and group-based) healing spells Tempests of Set can use several offensive AoE- (Area of Effect) and crowd-control-spells to destroy their enemies. They are able to stun and root targets to avoid damage while casting their offensive lightning spells. Although the quantity of offensive spells is naturally lower compared to pure caster-classes, the ToS can compete in both Solo-PvE and PvP.

When grouping up with others ToS often act as healers, but the feat trees offer interesting catenations between damage- and heal-spells, IE increased mana regeneration or healing power when dealing spell-damage. So the gamestyle intended by the developers is a mixture of healing and damage-dealing. The main buff Mark of Set increases the maximum health of the caster's group.

The feat trees also contain several additional offensive and support spells.

RoleEdit

Tempests are often expected to heal.

Thunder emphasizes augmenting the Tempests' healing spells to increase his allies damage, damage enemies, and heal for more. It also allows the Tempest to summon an Idol of Set, empowering allies and demoralizing enemies, and allows the Tempest to store a Life Spark which can return the Tempest to life if struck down in combat.

Lightning increases the Tempests damage capabilities, can empower healing spells, and allow his allies to do additional electric damage and restore mana to the Tempest.
