Channeling

Postby Dorn » Sun May 07, 2017 4:12 am

Just what does channeling effect beyond being able to open multiple channels? Is there any actual reason to work on the skill beyond X amount needed for whatever abilities you may have with it as a requirement, and to be able to open the channels you need.

The blurb says as follows..

"Channeling is the ability to effectively harness and channel one's energy for magical means. It is useful for preparing and casting spells more easily as well as the ability to channel multiple elements at once. In addition, it will assist in directing most non-projectile magical spells."

But I know of at least one ability that was changed so Channeling ceased helping it (a non-projectile one), so I'm kind of curious if that means it isn't a thing, the blurb is wrong, or what else there is to it.

Higher channeling skill = higher chance per second that extra channels past the first won't take energy. So I have heard at least.

The higher your skill, the less energy you'll spend when you hold more than one channel. That being said, I never saw the point in training it, if you're the sort of character who's going to really need it, you'll get there fairly quickly regardless.
