Symbol of the Proselyte (340) has now been released.
Clerics are called upon to convert new followers to their flock and to punish the unrepentant. By using a portion of their spirit, a cleric is able to imbue a holy symbol with the blessing of their deity. The symbol can then be worn and activated via CHANT to provide a bonus to the user's next attack. The bonus is a modifier to Spirit Casting Strength or Bolt Attack Strength equal to 5 + (Influence bonus / 2). If the attack is made against a target of the cleric's deity's opposing alignment, an additional bonus of (Wisdom bonus / 3) is applied. In addition, when an attack is made, it will have a truehand effect which changes the standard attack d100 roll to 50 + d50. Symbols are able to hold a number of charges equal to 3 + (Spiritual Lore, Blessings skill / 50).Clerics are able to create holy symbols of their deity at DragonSpine Fane, which can be reached via the Ancient Passage in Zul Logoth. These symbols can then be blessed and handed out in an attempt to convert new followers to the fold.Casting this spell consumes two spirit points.Once a symbol is activated, a user becomes attuned to it for ten minutes. This prevents them from using any other holy symbol for the same effect for that duration.
A special thanks to GameMaster Itzel for her awesome work on the deity specific messaging!
Clerics, and Paladins, may APPRAISE a symbol to determine if it is a valid holy symbol. Casting 340 at a symbol will attempt to auto convert it. Every attempt was made to auto convert any old symbols, but a lot of unique symbols will be missed. So, in the next week or two, I'll be offering a merchant service (more than once) to manually convert any symbols to the new system. Check back to this thread for updates on that.
