    Be interested to see the lore requirements for the different actions. May be a reason to shuffle around how we do lores.

    Well, religion will be heavily hit for warcamping paladins I'm sure. Although, they may do an evil trick and make onslaught effect the shroud.

    If Estild is in charge of it, you'll probably be splitting your lores all over the place for sub par results on everything.

    It's not mostly aimed at that. That was just one particular use case for the handful of paladins that claim they can already attack and kill anything in defensive stance with one attack. For a significant majority of paladins, that's not the case, and the spell has benefit for them in almost every scenario because of that.

    I'm surprised to see someone saying it only has on utility. I think it is pretty amazing for paladins. I mean, it isn't Solace level good, but you know.

    I like flares!
    Does incarnation change your appearance?
    Is it too late to change the verb to GODMODE?



    You can use the abilities at the same time, but the use of the ability does incur roundtime. So you could use ZEAL, wait through that roundtime, and then use ONSLAUGHT and the abilities would stack so to speak. Yes Crusade flares can be used in combination with Zeal, as can any other paladin type flares. The Zeal flares do not trigger with cmans or shield maneuvers, only with attacks. While I wish I had the time to physically change your appearance, this was out of scope for this project. As you'll see later on when the spell is released an enormous amount of work went into developing 1650 and unfortunately, I had to pick and choose what to develop in order to get this done for you all.

    Even if it's done as "incarnation smite", it's still inconvenient, because "inc" or even "inca smite" both want to have you try to "incant smite".
    (Because "incant" comes before "incarn", in the browser.)
    Maybe "divin smite" (divine incarnation <option>) will work....



    The development of the spell is essentially complete barring any corrections that come out of Quality Assurance, so it is to late to change the verb that is used to activate the abilities. The syntax will be INCARNATE <ability>. As another player mentioned, if you don't like this you can always build a macro or alias to make things easier for yourself.




    Looks like a lot of fun and the part that I was most pleased to see was the cooldown. Except for the single x/day portion this spell could be usable once every hunt. While I might not use it every hunt it is something that at least I'd use often enough to remember to use it at a fitting moment.



    I understand the dislike for x/day usages, however when you see the actual numbers for the ARMOR ability, you will better understand why the spell needed to be designed this way. In order to give you all "god like" abilities, there had to be a trade off and x/day usages is how that was accomplished for the emergency uses of ARMOR. As we've shared with you all before, all the development we do is reviewed, criticized, and debated upon by the entire development team and we do our best to take everyone's concerns into account. At the end of the day though, we have to do our best to preserve game balance while still providing you all with amazing new abilities. That's why we use the x/day usages sometimes.
