Warlocks!

Dev Posts - Tue, 05/12/2015 - 13:21
We're happy to introduce Warlocks, coming soon to DDO! These eldritch casters form pacts with powerful beings, seeking out rare and often forbidden knowledge. They deal large amounts of damage with their Eldritch Blast, and back that damage up with a variety of buff, control, and utility abilities. Warlock design draws from a variety of pen and paper editions, but primarily 3.5 and 5th edition. Unlike Sorcerers or Wizards, damage comes primarily through Eldritch Blast, rather than frequently casting damaging spells or SLAs. They choose a Pact at level 1 through a feat, which alters their Eldritch Blast and determines certain class feats that are granted as more Warlock levels are gained. Reminder this is a fairly early preview and things are subject to change. Abilities may move between feats and enhancements, or alter to accommodate what's changed elsewhere, etc. *Class Features* * Hit die: d6 * Cast Warlock spells in Light Armor without Arcane Spell Failure (like Bards) * Strong Will saves, weak Fortitude and Reflex saves * 3/4 Base Attack Bonus progression with class levels (+15 with 20 Warlock levels) * Any alignment * General structure of spell progression and spell points is similar to Bards: * Level 6 is maximum spell level for Warlocks. * Spells are learned, known and swapped like Bards or Sorcerers. * Spell list is primarily drawn from existing DDO spells, though we hope to have time to add some more. * Eldritch Blast* * This is a toggle feat. When you toggle it on, your basic attack (regardless of weapons held) becomes a ranged magical attack that hits a single enemy. * This initially deals 1d6 Force damage. There are ways to augment and alter this. * This does not cost Spellpoints, nor Hitpoints, nor anything other than time, much like swinging a weapon. * The default Eldritch Blast goes in a straight line. It doesn't home in. Enemies that move may avoid it. * You move at full speed while casting Eldritch Blast, unlike most spell casting. * Base Eldritch Blast damage increases with further Warlock levels, per the table listed below. * Eldritch Blast damage scales with a percentage of Spellpower. Exact amount to be determined. * Eldritch Blast criticals are based on magical stats: Critical Spell Chance and Critical Spell Damage. * There are Eldritch Blast Shapes that alter how you attack enemies. Single Target attacks are generally going to do higher damage per creature than AoE, for instance. These Shapes toggles are available in the enhancement trees. * Single Target * Chain * Cone * Point-blank AoE (aura around Warlock) * Pacts* * You choose a Pact at Warlock level 1, such as Fiend, Fey, or Great Old One. * Fey: Toggle: Your Eldritch Blasts now deal +1d4 extra Sonic damage per two Warlock levels. Adds Obscuring Mist to your Warlock spellbook. * Fiend: Toggle: Your Eldritch Blasts now deal +1d4 extra Fire damage per two Warlock levels. Adds Command to your Warlock spellbook. (Tentatively, this requires that you not be Good. There's some technical investigation we need to look into here.) * Great Old One: Toggle: Your Eldritch Blasts now deal +1d4 extra Acid damage two Warlock levels. Adds Entangle to your Warlock spellbook. (Tentatively, this requires that you not be Lawful. There's some technical investigation we need to look into here.) * Every even Warlock class level grants +1 die for Eldritch Blast Pact Damage (1d4) * Each Pact grants additional spells to your spellbook as you gain Warlock levels. _*ENHANCEMENT TREES*_ *Soul Eater* Your pact makes you an extension of your patron's hunger. You body and mind become more inhuman, and your ability to consume the souls and life force of your enemies also feeds your patron. Your attacks erode the life essence of your targets. * Notable Enhancements: 1. Eldritch Blast Shape: Chain Lighting 2. Damage-over-time effects 3. Debuff 4. Death Effects * Tainted Scholar* No secret is barred from the Tainted Scholar's grasp, and if such forbidden knowledge comes at the cost of his soul, he's willing to pay that price. * Notable Enhancements: 1. Eldritch Blast Shape: Cone 2. Eldritch Essences that alter how Eldritch Blast work 3. Direct damage boosting of Eldritch Blast 4. Crowd Control, including a new Confusion ability that causes enemies to attack player and monster characters indiscriminately. * Enlightened Spirit* Although the fiendish origins of some warlocks' powers can’t be denied, not all Warlocks embrace the darkness. Some turn toward the light. Such rare individuals are called Enlightened Spirits. * Notable Enhancements: 1. Eldritch Blast Shape: Point Blank Area of Effect: While toggled on, this deals damage around, scaling with your Eldritch Blast damage. This particular shape allows you to attack with melee or ranged weapons while damaging enemies around you. 2. Aura abilities that primarily buff allies around you 3. Mitigation 4. Pet/Summon/Charm support * We expect this tree to be popular with some cross-class melee builds. Please see follow-up posts for additional details on the class. Full Enhancement tree proposals to come later. We'd love to hear your thoughts, feelings, and feedback!
