"Exploiting the Dark Arts"

The ability to control and channel psychic forces makes Warlocks dangerous opponents. Psychic powers and dark elemental attacks from afar are their specialties. With enough channelled energy, they can invoke powerful curses, crippling foes and bolstering allies.

Combat Role[ | ]

Warlocks are a magic-based ranged damage dealing class. Many of their abilities cause damage over time in addition to direct damage. Unlike other casters, Warlocks use Focus as a resource. They can project powerful soul shields on their allies or buff their souls. Moreover, they can subdue the souls of their enemies; weakening or filling your heart with fear and doubt.

To flatten the high damage rate, the Warlock uses two very limited pools of fuel for his spells: Focus and Psi.

You have a never-changing pool-size of 100 Focus points. It regenerates fairly fast, and some skills actually increase this regeneration speed. However, the pool size severely limits the length of your primary combat sequence. For this reason it is highly recommended that Warlock Warlocks take up the profession of AlchemyAlchemy (at least to level 15) so you can make your own Focus potions (Focus Potion Focus Potion and Potion of Focused Will Potion of Focused Will).

Some skills also add Psi to your 6-bubble Psi gauge. Psi (sometimes called Soul Points) is used to power all of the special attacks unlocked by Willpower Blade Willpower Blade (Damage) or Willpower Construct Willpower Construct (Buffs). The gauge fills slowly over the length of a fight, and wise Psi management is very important to your overall utility to party and raid forces.

Skill´s Basic Combos[ | ]

Warlock Psi Meter

Warlock Psi Meter
2 of 6 Psi

The warlock builds energy influx (or Psi, displayed on your UI as 6 bubbles under your health, focus, and mana bars) and then uses this energy to perform incredibly devastating attacks. Because of the slowly-building nature of psi it is doubtful you will ever use these skills without a Boss fight and a full party.

You build Psi energy by using skills such as Psychic Arrows (1 Psi) and Puzzlement (2 Psi). When your Psi counter contains 6 green charges, you may use this energy to invoke Willpower Blade Willpower Blade or Willpower Construct Willpower Construct, each of which makes possible a group of follow-Up skills. After you get the state, the charges become Violet (Willpower Blade) or Blue (Willpower Construct).
