Justicar orisons

From LSWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Axa grants her Justicars the ability to call on her power through prayer. The effects that Axa is willing to grant are designed to further her goals and come in the form of powerful attacks against her enemies or abilities that enable Justicars to do so themselves by keeping them alive longer or enhancing their abilities. Performing a prayer is a complex process that requires more time and effort than an invocation. Calling on Axa's power in this manner requires the Justicar to expend goetic energy. Goetic energy can be fully restored by praying to Axa at the chapel in the Ivory Tower.

The prayers that are commonly known to the Justicars are divided into attack, healing, and utility abilities. As each Justicar will draw on their own experience in the performance of a prayer, these abilties require skill in massive blow, athleticism, and smithing respectively. All prayers also require the Justicar to possess some measure of piety as well as knowledge of both theurgy and law.

Prayers are a form of spellcasting, and require use of the cast command.

The syntax for casting prayers is 'cast <spell name> [on <target> | with <component> | without <spell step> | <extra arguments>]'.

Each prayer has its own help file accessed by typing 'help <prayer name>'. Any prayer-specific syntax will be listed here, as well as your current perfection. A variety of factors may affect this during casting, such as attempts to skip steps. Further, fumbling individual steps can cause prayers to fail despite an otherwise high perfection.

In the war for perfect order, the Lawbringer demands that these malformations cease.  She has granted the Justicars the ability to consecrate an area in her name.  This will create an ordered surrounding to banish the chaos that was present before.  Axa will also illuminate your surroundings to help you fight the chaotic hordes.

            Difficulty: easy
            Skills: eideturgy, enchantment, and althexiphrasty

    Body reconstruction calls on Axa's power to channel ordered energies through the invoker to restore the body to its natural state.  This can heal wounds and, at higher levels of perfection, restore limbs.

Unlocked at ~60 athleticism. Seems to cost a flat 0.5 goetic energy per cast. It does respect the mending timer, but there isn't any special messaging; you just won't be healed if it's been less than 60 seconds since the last time you were mended.

125 athleticism and no orison yet, must require other skills as well --Win 14:08, 22 February 2018 (EST)

    If a Justicar were to fall in battle, Axa's influence would be weakened.  While it is not possible to prevent this entirely, Axa grants this orison to her strongest warriors to mitigate the possibility.  While active, eternal law will prevent a Justicar's death and grant a temporary boost to combat ability to ensure victory.

            Importance: major
            Difficulty: very easy
            Skills: smithing

    This prayer allows the caster to learn about the target.  This includes both its identity and any potential chaotic nature it may be hiding.  The amount of knowledge gained increases with the skill of the caster.

Similar effect to a lens of insight, though it might take more than one cast to identify everything.

Locate Chaos

    Summary: scrying
    Syntax: invoke locate chaos using the chaotic nature of <target> as a focus
    Steps: 
        1) intoning the litany

            Type: Thought
            Importance: major
            Difficulty: easy
            Skills: smithing

    Through the use of this prayer, the Justicar can call on Axa's power to find those with a chaotic nature.  This ability is easier to use the more skill the Justicar has and the more chaotic the target.  Once located, orienteering may be required for the Justicar to determine the location of the revealed area.

Target must have some degree of chaos otherwise caster is afforded a view of the degenerate abomination that is Exoma, sending their mind reeling in revulsion.

Create Echelon Armour

    Summary: create/upgrade armour
    Syntax: invoke create echelon armour in the form of a/an <armour type>
            invoke create echelon armour upon <target>
    Steps:

            Difficulty: moderate
            Skills: law (moderate), smithing (moderate), goetic investiture (small), and theurgy (small)
        4) shaping the armour
            Type: Gesture
            Importance: major
            Difficulty: moderate
            Skills: smithing

    This prayer has two distinct uses.  Cast without a target, it can create a temporary piece of armour that, while powerful, costs energy to maintain.  Alternatively, a piece of strata armour can be permanently upgraded to echelon armour.  It can also be cast targeting a created piece to dismiss it.  The types of armour that you can create with this prayer are as follows: tailsheath, wingsheath, left gauntlet, bodysuit, right boot, helm, left boot, right gauntlet, greave, bracer, breastplate, halfsuit, full suit, and tailed halfsuit.

Knowledge of this prayer unlocked with smithing 105, theurgy 127, law 128, goetic investiture 74. That's enough for 9% perfection...

Every piece upgraded from strata seems to add 5 points to strength, hardiness and chaos resistance. Thus far seems to resize strata to fit caster. Unknown if there is a range limit on resizing.

    With this orison, any weapon can be made lighter and more suited for use by a Justicar.  While this orison cannot be used on the Shield of Axa or chaotic weapons, it is capable of turning mundane weapons into powerful artifacts.

Seems to unlock with 125 Smithing, plus some amount of Theurgy/Law/Goetic Investiture. It also makes your weapon do pure order-based discharges. Also improves weapon performance in attack and deflection ratings. Further quirks unknown.

Unlocking Requirements

The main skills for unlocking Justicar Orisons are Theurgy and Goetic Investiture. To unlock the 2nd tier, you'll need a combined 150 in these two skills. For the 3rd and 4th tiers you'll need a combined 200 and 250 respectively.

Each category of Orison also has an extra skill specifically for that category (Massive Blow, Athleticism and Smithing). These skills need to be at least 60/100/125 to unlock tier 2/3/4 in their respective categories.

So, for example, to unlock Create Echelon Armour, you would need at least 200 skill between Theurgy and Goetic Investiture, as well as at least 100 in your Smithing skill.

The unlocking requirements follow the same pattern as for invocations (using Discipline mainly, with the extra skill of Biology, Psychology or Cosmology) and realizations (using Order Affinity and Eideturgy mainly, with the extra skill of Find Weakness, First Aid or Orienteering).
