    List of Enchanter abilities pulled from website and current August streams. There are some discrepencies among them (different names, cast times and such) as well as some abilities haven’t been shown yet. In the case of a discrepency I took the information from the most recent stream with Nick.

     

    Passives

    Runeskin
    Causes you to naturally absorb X% of incoming damage. Once that amount of damage has been absorbed, Runeskin will fade for Y duration before passively reactivating at full effect. Runeskin’s damage absorption capacity will slowly replenish over time when not taking damage.

    Lyrith’s Embellishment
    Your skill with physical enchantment and illusions has made you adept in the art of persuasion. Your buy prices will be decreased and your sell prices will be increased with most vendors.

    Inside Voice
    The longer your target has been under the effects of your Mesmerizing abilities, the less likely they will be to resist your Charm abilities.

    Mental Terraformer
    Epic Skill. Your Charm spells now have a small innate chance to permanently Charm your target. Permanent Charm will break when you die or zone.

    Thanks for putting this together. One thing to note that I didn't notice until now, Illusion Graft: Acuity, Acumen, Quickness and Veracity have their mana costs reversed. A minor issue that will obviously be changed at a later date.

    I noticed that too and I think what I'll do is just keep updating information exactly how they have it so we can call things out like you just mentioned. And hopefully future streamers can see what we're missing to complete our grand Enchanter list.

    Squee’s Mimicry 
    You cast an illusion, taking on the likeness of a random object in the environment within X meters of you. This illusion is quite effective and will fool most NPCs who see you, causing them to ignore you.

    So.... can this normally un used skill be used in combat and would/could it clear agro?

    My wife (who plans to play an Enchanter) wants to know ow if she will be able to save herself from a train by turning into a tree or a bucket?

     

    Squee’s Grand Foolery
    Epic Ability. Enchanters can evolve Squee’s Mimicry into Squee’s Grand Foolery, casting the illusion on all members of their group for X duration.

    A (humorous)  Enchanter version of evacuation?

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think they've talked at length about these abilities. I vaguely remember something about being able to turn your entire group into a bunch of crates while the train runs by. Whether you're able to do this in combat or not is still unknown, I believe. It might be a bit overpowered if you were able to cast this in combat while a mob is beating on your tank (hence losing the agro).

    In any case, since we have a limited ability bar I'm hoping to have a spot for Grand Foolery. I love the concept. I also hope they rig the spell in a way that the player can't easily dispel it (manually right click) so Enchanters can cast the ability in the heat of a moment without a player accidently breaking it.

    @Zorkon

    In Everquest 1, minor illusion had the benefit of making the Enchanter non KOS to everything but with one caveat, it only worked in a dungeon. Oddly, the effect had to be set for a zone to work and those zones comprised of 80% of all dungeons in Vanilla and Kunark. The issue is, you could move as minor illusion allowing you to move unmolested by any of the mobs. They attempted to fix this seven different times. Each time they tried, Enchanters found another tool in their arsenal to bypass the fix. The seventh just before Luclin was the final fix that worked.

    The spell in Pantheon is said to work the same but this time, a guarantee that you can't move under the illusion. In EQ, if you were in a dungeon and had aggro on something, if you used the spell, it doesn't change any of the aggro with regard the mob you're attacking since it still has an agressive aggro state towards your character. If you Mem Blur it however, it will deaggro and return to normal state which since you're in minor illusion is non-KOS.

    Mem Blur is in Pantheon so I assume that will work as well. For a group, this could be used if taking on a powerful mob. If dying as a group, you can Minor Illusion them, then mem blur the target and it will walk away. The issue is, if there's two mobs, you can't mem blur both at the same time. If you mem blur one, it will reaggro due to chain aggro from the other still beating on the group. You could use mez, then blur them that way. Tricky, but it can work.

    Then we have to factor in how Illusions work in Pantheon. Currently it appears Enchanters will have all Racial Illusions but very likely an asortment of non-humanoid illusions or creature illusions. Then there's the passive detailed below. Minor Illusion's ability to fool mobs may be dependent on that skill, not to mention it may also mean racial illusions give you the full racial abilities and passives as well as creature illusions giving you their benefits as well.

    Yeah it seems like it could definitely end up OP as Avaen pointed out. What could be done to eliminate that?

    No movement would be required.

    No casting as well.

    A long recast timer say once every 30min to an hour.

    It would give in enchanters the ability to grief train equal to a monk , with the exception of the proposed time restraint.

    Just thinking out loud...

    @Zorkon 

    It's really not considering. It was as if not more powerful in EQ1 and wasn't really giving the Enchanter any real power. If you can't move, it's only good for hiding from wandering or pathing mobs. If you aggro something while in the form, you still chain aggro to anything that wanders in. You can erase aggro and have them walk away, but then you can just kill them, or keep them mezzed forever or leave the area as they're mezzed and blur them. The options are there and the Minor Illusion spell doesn't really allow for any major sense of power.

    "No movement would be required."

    It very likely won't allow movement for the above reasons.

    "No casting as well."

    Casting or attacking is fine because remember, the same rules apply if you were to cast a detrimental spell against a target. At that point it won't matter if you're in minor illusion or not.

    "A long recast timer say once every 30min to an hour."

    Not really necessary since it won't be used much if at all.

    "It would give in enchanters the ability to grief train equal to a monk , with the exception of the proposed time restraint."

    It wont because unlike a monk, you can't just end aggro. If you have aggro and you then go into minor illusion, you're still going to have that aggro. You can still greif train by pulling and blurring a mob near another group. Minor Illusion doesn't really help that much at all.

    Thanks for the reply Janus. I was considering "Squee’s Grand Foolery Epic Ability." As an Enchanter version of the Wizard Evacuate spell. (Or Druid Succor) where it could (would need too) clear Agro.

    As just an illusion, that doesn't seem all that "epic" to me. Kind of seems like Enchanters will be getting ripped off.

    But as a way to save a group from a bad pull or a train... then it would be epic.

    All of this is speculation and I would lightly caution against making these assumptions until we know more about the ability. These sorts of conversations steer the points being made to a desired result or an expected outcome based on another game's abilities.

    Agreed Avaen.

    Not even speculation, but more just a question for my part.

    Could it work that way? 

    I know the Devs are aware that many don't like the possibility of Trains. Other games have just eliminated the possibility of Trains. THAT approach has damaged games in my opinion. I guess I just look for ways they can be handling the problems  by leaving the threat while adding abilities to combat them.

    My personal preference for Grand Foolery would be just as you said; to save a group from a bad pull or train. I feel like an ability like that would truly feel epic. However that works as far as cooldown, agro drop, resists, etc. we'll have to see!

    I'm hoping they'll do a higher level stream to see some abilities like Charm and Shock & Awe. Also curious about Malison's Lucid Nightmare/Dream.

    Yes my wife and I were looking at that one a well.  (we were watching this Nathan NAPALM Pantheon: ENCHANTER In-Depth Look! this weekend)

    Malison's Lucid Dream "--will automatically apply Malison’s Lucid Nightmare to your Offensive target.--

    We were wondering if that is the ONLY way to apply the Nightmare or just one possable way?

     

    So with the Dream, I could see a situation where a long battle, the mob is nearly dead, The Healer is OOM,

    And then the Enchanter cast the Dream on the Healer

    granting "their abilities to have no resource cost for the duration" (I read this as unlimited mana)

    and this applies Nightmare to the Mob "causing all of their attacks and abilities to have no effect." (I read this as the Tank is now taking Zero damage and the Mob can't heal itself)

    If they don't kill the mob before the Nightmare expires

    Aaand thats where it looses me.... (well I'm not sure I'm understanding it correctly)

           "all resources your Defensive target has spent during its duration will be retroactively lost."

    "Defensive Target" In my senario that would be the Healer correct? So if they were already OOM then no loss, right?

           "Additionally, the collective damage done to this target while the effect was active will be discharged in full at a random member of your group"

    LOL.. this is pretty clear... somebody dies, or at least see's the Enchanter a little less "Charming" than they once were.

     

     Thats for sure worthy of the "Epic" lable. I really LOVE the potential for it to backfire if used too early in a fight. (if the mob doesn't die before it runs out)

    It's a fantastic concept! And something exciting for Enchanters to pull off, I think. I'm anticpating the reveal of this ability because I'd like to see it being used on DPS. I'm a healer at heart so I naturally thought of it being used on healers as well but allowing burn moments toward the end of a fight is super sexy too.  And without speculating too far on how the ability will work, I wonder if stacking Enchanters will be viable for a glass cannon/mana return/mez pulling group.

    Oh! I hadent thought of DPS... Tank goes down, Mob goes after the next in his hate list, the Wizard,  Dream to the Wiz, Nightmare to the Mob "causing all of their attacks and abilities to have no effect." The possably oom Wizard takes no damage, no stuns, no interuupts and burns it down for the win.

    As for Grand Foolery, I would just like to point out that it seems to be nothing more than a re-skinned Magic version of Feign Death and/or Group feign death.  Only not as good.  It doesn't work 100% of the time.  How does Feign work for monks?  Are they able to move?  Use abilities?  What's the comparison here?  I think this minor illusion should work as often as Feign does for monks.  Chanters are pullers too and this is a great tool for that purpose.
