BALANCE OF POWER - Imperian Online Help
17.12 BALANCE OF POWER
Balance of Power is an event in which you take on the persona of one of history's Legends. These Legends are from Imperian's rich histories. When a Balance of Power is announced, you will be able to become one of the following Legends. The syntax is: JOIN BOP <arena>. You will be automatically assigned an unused Legend that you will play during the event. The Legends are: IK'TARU, tribal leader YAKSHA, Prophet of Peace AYVA, Prophetess of Light KALIKA Aisling, Founder of Stavenn Stavennite General, CZEVAK Elder NATHARIEL, Caananite Defender IKTOV Sholet, Ruler of Caanae ZANGRILLA Sylvia, Academic Herbalist IBA Ebven, the Sculptor High Councilman, GAUTIER Lajos AYASHA Gazali, Magick-user VALENCIA Pyralis, Founder of the Wytchen Aetherian Explorer, JADEN Magnar Elder of Kinsarmar, ILOM Marcell MISAE Jerica, Governer of Kinsarmar Stavennite Refugee, GELOR Antioch ARGENTINUS Damaun, Demon Slayer Governer of the Eastern Foothills, FERLERN Batrisi ASA Grady, Protector of Stavenn ANOKI Fauve, the Traitor Upon becoming a Legend, you will be deposited into the Coliseum. Once the Balance of Power has been started, you must try to slay the other Legends, to become the last one standing. The abilities you will have are as follows: HEAL - Syntax: HEAL - Heals some health. MEDITATE - Syntax: MEDITATE - Heals mana. FLAME BOW - Syntax: SHOOT <player> <direction> - Inflicts damage. WEB TATTOO - TOUCH WEB <target> - Webs someone. Unlike normal web tattoo, it does use mana. - WRITHE to unweb yourself. SHIELD TATTOO - TOUCH SHIELD - Puts up a translucent shield around you. Uses mana, unlike normally. HAMMER TATTOO - TOUCH HAMMER <target> - Destroys someone's translucent shield. Uses mana, unlike normally. LIGHTNING WAND - POINT WAND <target> - Does more damage than the flame bow. In addition, you will find that you have the skills of Perception and Survival to do with as you please. Note that in Balance of Power, almost every action aside from moving and writhing will cost something. You will lose a second of equilibrium for trying to target someone with your lightning wand or flame bow whom you can't hit. Using them successfully takes mana and equilibrium. Even the tattoos use up mana. Essentially, the idea is that you have to much more carefully manage your health and mana than in normal combat, because while you're healing your mana or health, that's all you can do. You can't drink vials of health or mana elixir to heal while also attacking, or while also putting up a translucent shield.
