Professions Page

<help professions>


Players may join a profession which provides the player with a benefit that is themed according to each individual profession. For example, an 'arsonist' is more proficient with fire damage. Using professions a player may customize their play experience according to their own play style and interests.

Professions are divided up into minor, specialization, and major professions. Minor professions are typically passive benefits that trigger randomly if the player is able to meet certain conditions that vary according to each profession. Specialization professions are similar to minor professions, but are situational in nature. Major professions typically grant the player new abilities and are much more involved than minor or specialization professions.

A player is able to choose professions at the following levels:

Level 20 : Minor #1
Level 30 : Specialization #1
Level 40 : Major #1
Level 50 : Minor #2
Level 60 : Specialization #2

In addition, all previously selected professions must be advanced up to level 35 or higher.

Seek out the Office of Professional Registration south, west, south, south, south, west, west from the Center of Town (west of the Bewitching Clearing) in Pinnacle! Once there, you can <read sign> -

The biochemist has a chance in combat to temporarily gain a bonus to the combat.proficiency.disciplines.natural mskill.
Boxer's Headgear

The boxer's headgear has seen its fair share of abuse. The red leather is worn and cracked, and the strap connecting the two foam filled sides can barely hold the thing together.

The boxer has a chance to temporarily gain a bonus to bludgeoning damage resistance when taking damage from bludgeoning attacks.

A Lightning Infused Fieldsmith's Hammer (depleted)

This sooty black hammer has seen better days, but each of its nicks and dings are part of a long and glorious history. Lightning crackles along the head, but the electrical charge dissipates mere inches away from it. Light enough to bring into the field, but hard enough to shape the hardest of metals, it is cleverly imbued with the power to absorb the structural integrity of a fallen foe's armor or weaponry to fuel its repairs. This traveling hammer has performed patchup work right before the eve of battle for some of the most glorious heroes -- and some of the most nefarious villains.

The fieldsmith can use the hammer to 'dismantle' armor or weaponry in their inventory. This is necessary for the fieldsmith to 'patchup' their own or someone else's equipment.

WMT Notes: You must be prof level 35 to superforce.
Golem Master's Toolkit

This magic little pouch contains everything you need to build your own little golem. Inside you can find all sorts of interesting little tools and doodads, and most importantly of all, the control rod for your little friends. Don't get too attached, though! After all, they are completely mindless and will never rise up against you.

Golem masters can harvest components from corpses to build their own golems. All golem masters can build the most basic of golems, which follows them around and can be used to carry items. Golems can also be sent to the shop to sell whatever it is carrying. More skilled golem masters can create sentinel golems, social golems, and even party golems!

The command 'golemize <corpse> <limbs|torso|head>' is used to collect components for your golem. The command 'golemize' will list your currently collected components, and the command 'golemize dispose' will throw away all your collected components and start from scratch. The 'golem [which] <cmd>' command is used to control or check the status of your golem or your collected components. To find out what your golem can do for you, use 'golem [which] help'.

You may build the following golem types:

Type       : Lvl
Packmule   :   1
Watcher    :  25
Companion  :  50

Party      :  90

You are currently controlling 0 of 2 golems.

Herbologist's Garden Shovel

The blade of the shovel is made of metal and flat at the top to make it easier to dig down into dirt. This shovel signifies your ability as a herbologist.

With this shovel you can 'harvest' herbs. Be aware, though, that you can't herb simply *anywhere*! You have to have found a flower, a plant, a tree, a field, or something else along those lines -- and that's what you're harvesting! The herbologist is limited as to how often he or she may harvest in a given period of time. Herbs have a variety of effects, including healing damage or short term boosts of mskills.

You can harvest 4 times right now.
A Marshal's Standard (12 glowing of 12 total gems)

This long white staff is topped with a giant flag that flaps noisily in the breeze. Upon the flag is the crest of an eagle using its talons to tear into the stomach of a bull ox. Crimson fabric is used liberally to depict the blood splattering in every direction. Twelve gems decorate the length of the staff. The flag and standard proclaims 'FOLLOW ME AND I WILL MAKE US VICTORIOUS'.

The use of this flag allows the bearer to shout out various rallying cries that will inspire teammates. You can issue forth a rallying cry with the command 'rallycry <heal|spirit|defensive|offensive <target>>', which can be done at levels 1, 10, 35 and 50 respectively. You can also do 'rallycry check' to see who is eligible to be affected by a rallycry. This only affects party members in the same room as the marshal.
A Reforger's Kit

The reforger's kit comes with multiple tools - a hammer, an awl, and a few magical (or perhaps scientific?) devices that pulse randomly with white hot energy. This particular kit has seen better days, but that's a good thing -- better for it to be well used than not needed!

A reforger has the ability to 'reforge' an item in order to take from one property and add to another. All that is needed is a nearby forge, but high level reforgers should be aware that they will need to find appropriate forges on which to practice their craft!
A Transmuter's Stone (blank)

This stone of swirling magicks is the key to your transmuting ability. When fully powered, many colours writhe about inside stone: blue, red, orange, octarine... and you know how to harness them all! The stone is much lighter than it would seem at a first glance, and it is eerily smooth to the touch.

Transmuters can convert crafting components from one item to another, usually at a cost.
'transmute ' : tells you what it can be transmuted to (if at all)
'transmute [n] to : transmutes the item(s) into the target

Note that you can only transmute to a better quality, not a poorer quality.
'transmute type to : transmutes an armour or weapon type. Must be transmuter level 35.
A Trapper's Rucksack

The worn brown rucksack is stuffed full of wire, bits of wood and some other alchemical substances. A knowledgeable trapper needs only to stick their hands in, grab what they need, quickly assemble a trap, and then launch it at an enemy! A trapper can scrounge and store wood, metal or hide to be used in the construction of the following types of traps: 'blind', 'slow', 'snare', 'stun' and 'wound'.

A trapper must 'scrounge from ' where is some sort of wood, metal or hide and is an object in your inventory. The contents of the rucksack can be seen using the command 'listrucksack'. You can dispose of raw materials using the command 'trapdispose ' where is one of the three raw ingredient types or the word 'all'.

Traps can be built using the command 'buildtrap ', where can be blind, slow, snare, stun or wound. A trap can be launched using the command 'launchtrap '. Each trap requires different profession level and amount of raw materials to construct. This can be seen using the command 'listtraps'.
Veterinarian's Scrubs

These scrubs are covered in a flowery print of yellow and gold petunias. Overall, the effect is very loud and ostentatious. It's almost as if someone had designed clothing to be worn in a pediatrician's office, but went WAY WAY WAY too far. The only thing that could ever appreciate this clothing is something colour blind -- which is where you and your puppy come in.

The vet's scrubs come fully equipped with everything you need to look after your pet dog using the command 'vet'. You can 'heal' at vet level 1, 'incite' at level 10 and 'dodge' at level 35.
