Subj: November classleads, part 3

The third batch of November classlead chakgeshas just been loaded, with more still left to come!

- CATACLYSM (Crystalism) is now usable by its owner even if not imbued by three Magi - imbuing allows the vibe to be used by anyone with the appropriate Elemancy abilities

- Astralform has been removed from Noctu, and replaced with a new combat ability called Astralwarp - see the AB help for details

- The hound (Enslavery) now moves to its target in a single step, instead of walking room by room

- The hound also gives a message to its owner when it strips the shield defence

- TRANSMOGRIFY (Noctu) has been reworked - negative mutations have been removed, strength of most positive ones has been reduced, and you can pick one of the mutations that you will get - the other two will be random

- Throwing an eye sigil now has a balance cost, and it pulls players in room out of blackwind, along with phase

- Eye sigils on the ground no longer cause an increased willpower drain for blackwinded individuals, and willpower loss for passing through lightningwalls and firewalls while blackwinded has likewise been reduced

- Torment hounds now bypass monoliths if the target has the Defiler allied

- MIND LOCK times are more consistent now - at Transcendent Telepathy, the time now ranges from 8 to 12 seconds, depending on the target's Philosophy skill rank, before factoring in other modifiers (mindprints and similar)

- CONSECRATION (Devotion) has been reworked as follows:
- Consecrating is no longer a channeled process - it happens instantly, with an equilibrium cost
- Devotion cost has been significantly reduced
- Any room can be consecrated now - consecration lasts 120 game months in Anti-Magick areas, up to 1 game month in Magick and Demonic ones, and 3 game months everywhere else
- Consecrating a room with less than maximum months left brings it back to maximum
- CONSECRATE CHECK now tells you the status of an existing consecration, if any
- If a monolith sigil is present in the room, consecrating will destroy it instead
- Throwing a monolith sigil at the ground reduces the remaining consecration time by 3 game months at a balance cost - if none are left, it is destroyed

- Rousing a tree (Naturalism) now also clears the information about who infested it

- SAVOUR TREE now also clears an ongoing purification, along with information about who did it (after displaying it, of course)
