Child of Loki
Child of Loki
|Motto||My children shall exceed me!|
Like the famous trickster god, members of this class love to take on the forms of other beings. Unlike the other Realms, the power of this class comes from their animal forms, and not from their weapons or abilities. Practitioners of this class have more forms available to them than their counterparts from the other Realms. They gain this knowledge through an oral tradition passed down by their order. It was begun by the very first skin-changer, who heard it from Loki himself.
History[edit | edit source]
Sample Components[edit | edit source]
Howl of Ragnarök (Secondary)
Applies a chaos debuff to all nearby enemies that increases their panic rating based on damage dealt to them by the user over a moderate duration. Affected targets that reach their maximum panic rating take greatly increased damage from the user’s attacks while the debuff is present.
Ravenous Ferocity (Secondary)
Grants a chaos buff to the user that greatly increases the health returned by their attacks. This buff also cures a wound to the user’s most wounded body part each time they inflict a wound on an enemy while the buff is present.
|Gift of Sleipnir (Primary)
Transforms the user into a spirit form of Sleipnir (horse), capable of increased movement speed and charging attacks, that can deal crushing damage and knock back enemies. The cooldown for this begins when another Gift is activated.
Thunderous Charge (Secondary)
After a long activation time, increases the user’s movement speed for a brief duration, or until their next attack, and grants their next attack high bonus crushing damage and a moderate knockback.
Speed of Hermóðr (Secondary)
Channeling this places the user in an enhanced spirit form for a brief duration. While in their enhanced form, the user gains increased movement speed, and cannot be affected by physical or magic types except death, shadow, chaos, and void, which have their power on the user greatly increased. When the channeling ends, the user returns to the basic spirit form and applies a chaos debuff to nearby enemies that greatly reduces their movement speed for a duration based on the amount of channeling time used.
Peerless Extrication (Secondary)
A channeled effect that increases the movement speed of the user and their nearby ally target, as long as they stay within range. It also suppresses any leg wounds and movement-impairing debuffs on both the user and their ally target for the length of its duration.
|Gift of Jörmungandr (Primary)
Transforms the user into a spirit form of Jörmungandr (snake), capable of using piercing attacks that apply poison damage when penetrating the target’s armor. The cooldown for this begins when another Gift is activated.
Ruinous Venom (Secondary)
Bites the target, dealing high piercing damage with moderate armor penetration. If this attack penetrates the target’s armor and a poison debuff is not present, it applies a poison damage over time debuff to the target. Poison damage dealt by this debuff is increased based on the remaining health of the target’s affected body part. If a poison debuff is already present on the target, this effect increases the damage the existing poison inflicts over time.
Tenacious Venom (Secondary)
Bites the target, dealing low piercing damage with high armor penetration. If this attack penetrates the target’s armor and a poison debuff is not present, it inflicts a long duration poison debuff that inflicts low poison damage over time. If a poison debuff is already present on the target, this effect increases its duration.
Degenerate Venom (Secondary)
Bites the target, dealing high piercing damage with low armor penetration. If this attack penetrates the target’s armor and a poison debuff is not present, it inflicts a poison debuff that deals escalating poison damage over time. If a poison debuff is already present, this effect increases the poison damage it deals by an increasing amount over its duration.
Key Features[edit | edit source]
Greatly increases the power of the user’s current Gift, increasing their size and the power of their abilities.
Fissures open in the ground around the user and violently erupt with the spirit kindred of the user’s current Gift. Enemies who come into contact with the spirits have a chaos debuff applied to them based on the type of spirits present:
- Wolves – Increase panic rating and apply a chaos debuff that greatly reduces movement speed and increases ability preparation and recovery times.
- Horses – Knock enemies back and deal crushing damage.
- Serpents – Apply a poison debuff that deals poison damage over time for a brief duration, or if a poison debuff is already present, greatly enhance the damage taken from all previously present poison effects.

|Cumbersome Reality||Physical damage mitigation from armor is reduced, and the user suffers increased encumbrance from equipment.|
|Painful Gifts||The user takes an amount of chaos damage when applying Gift abilities based on the duration of the previous gift, up to a maximum damage cap after a long duration.|
|Trickster's Virtue||Cures one wound from the user’s most damaged body part each time a Gift is changed.|
|Ornamental Assimilation||The properties of armor and weapons equipped by the user have their stats incorporated into their transformations. These grant offensive and defensive bonuses relative to equipment quality and power.|
