Mysticism

From UOGuide

Jump to: navigation, search

Mysticism is a body of magic first used by the Gargoyle Race. It was added with the Stygian Abyss expansion and may be learned by all races, not just gargoyles. Similar to Spellweaving and Necromancy, Mysticism has its own unique set of magic spells cast from a Spellbook.

Battle Focus and Imbuing augment the power of certain Mysticism spells. Evaluate Intelligence once augmented as well, but was swapped for Focus with Publish 64 in February 2010.

Lore

Humans and Gargoyles worked together from a common source of magic, and the Gargoyles went on to refine their arcane arts to deal with the cataclysms destroying their world. Gargoyles have mastered the art of magic called Mysticism.

Similar to Magery, Mysticism consists of 16 spells and eight ranks that signify their power and the magic ability required to cast them. These eight concentric ranks correspond to vortices within the ether, all spinning one within another as they expand through the universe. The more powerful a spell you wish to cast, the deeper into the inner circles of ether you must penetrate. The deeper you go, the more mana (magical energy) each spell requires you to expend. Spells of the Eighth Rank require great measures of both skill and mana, while spells of the First Rank are much easier and require less energy.

Those skilled in Mysticism are known as Mystics.
