Pure Shaper

Faris is not limited by a resource and may cast his abilities freely.


Passive: Grants 15% / 20% / 25% / 30% / 35% increased Attack Speed and Faris' Basic Attack deal 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 bonus magical damage (20 / 30 / 40 / 50 /60 in melee form). Active: Faris switches Basic Attack modes between Ranged and Melee. Ranged: +2% (+0.02%) of the target's current Health as magical damage (maximum 30 / 65 / 100 / 135 / 170 against minions and creatures.) Melee: +8% (+0.025%) of the target's missing Health as magical damage (maximum 30 / 65 / 100 / 135 / 170 against minions and creatures.)

Access Memory

Ranged Form Sentinel: Faris relives a memory, projecting an image of himself where he's standing and firing 10 volleys in target direction, dealing up to 120 / 170 / 220 / 270 / 320 (+0.7) total magical damage to all enemies in a cone. Melee Form Reaver: Faris relives a memory, projecting an image of himself in target direction dealing 50 / 90 / 130 / 170 / 210 (+0.6) magical damage to each enemy non-Shaper hit. Reaver deals 75 / 135 / 195 / 255 / 315 (+0.9) magical damage to the first Shaper hit, and ends the ability.


Faris dashes to target location, dealing 50 / 85 / 120 / 155 / 190 (+0.7) magical damage and slowing enemies by 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 / 45% for 3 seconds in an area upon arrival. For the next 3 seconds, Faris may recast this ability to return to the initial cast location. Recast: Faris teleports back to the location he dashed from.

Final Protocol

Faris begins targeting an enemy Shaper for a salvo of energy shots. Enemy Shapers close to the primary target interfere with targeting, causing them to become targets and revealed as well. After 2.0 seconds, Faris fires 5 shots distributed amongst targeted Shapers dealing 75 / 120 / 165 (+0.25) magical damage. Consecutive hits against the same target now deal 50% reduced damage.
FARIS: Archive dated Sixth Year of the Council of Bel-Adan, Waning Moon of Long Stars. MATIHOLOGIST: Would you name yourself, for the record? AKAID: Akaid Il-Tan-Esh. Former watchman. MATIHOLOGIST: Why are you here? AKAID: I'm dying. I came to donate. MATIHOLOGIST: Why did you volunteer? AKAID: My wife died six years ago. Kirina " our daughter " she and I held her hands when she passed. I still miss her, every day. I'm not afraid of the Spirits. But when I'm gone, what we shared... no one will know it. Not as we did. MATIHOLOGIST: You're aware this can't be reversed? Once removed, they're gone. We can't return them. AKAID: When we began courting, Erishti asked me, "Will we be together forever?" I thought one of us would die before the other. So I told her, "I'm dubious." * * * FARIS: I am awake. MATIHOLOGIST: Hello, Faris. Please consult your anamnesis. Can you tell me your earliest memory? FARIS: Waking up, just now. Correction. A woman with long hair, like black silk. Or silver? A little girl with hazel eyes. No " a grown woman? She and I held the woman's hands. I remember a sensation within. Strong. Warm. I do not know its name. MATIHOLOGIST: You will in time. There's a task I need you to perform. FARIS: Protect the crèche. MATIHOLOGIST: Can you tell me why? FARIS: An answer is carved into my thoughts; "Protect the future." My anamnesis counsels a different response. MATIHOLOGIST: Oh? FARIS: I remember the sound of a child crying. May I ask a question? MATIHOLOGIST: Certainly. FARIS: The man on the bed. He is..? MATIHOLOGIST: Ill. He hasn't long to live. FARIS: He looks lonely. MATIHOLOGIST: He just gave up something very important to him. FARIS: May I stay with him until my duties begin?
