Dark School attack spells
« on: May 13, 2014, 05:18:01 PM »
Is the Dark school going to get attack spells in a future expansion? Could make some poisoned based attack spells.

Something like a Shadowbolt  7 Mana 4 Dice with chance to taint or rot enemies. That's what i'm missing  8)
Akiro, I have never prayed to you before. No one will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that one stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Akiro... so grant me strength! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!

The previewed Devil's Trident is Dark 1 & Fire 1. I think other Dark attack spells would be cool too.

I figure given time we'll get some. Shadow Tentacles, Dark Bolts, Disease Blasts, etc all show up in other fantasy settings so there's at least a basis for them to draw on.

Attack spells seemed strongly linked to the Damage Types based on the current distribution.

However, we have limited Psychic and Poison damage attack spells at the moment.

[mwcard=FWA02]Force Hammer[/mwcard]
[mwcard=FWA03]Hail of Stones[/mwcard]
[mwcard=FWA04]Hurl Boulder[/mwcard]
[mwcard=FWA05]Invisible Fist[/mwcard]

Those are the current attack spells without any association with a particular damage type. That's a grand total of 4 out of 19 attack spells currently released (not counting promos or previewed spells). So, roughly 79% of attack spells are linked with a damage type, and wtcannonjr's statement does have some merit. But it does show there is room for those without such an association.
