Equipment Proficiencies

Weapon proficiencies increase the chances of the special procs for a player's active Fighting Style. They also grant additional fighting skills.

The following effects are per 1 point in their respective proficiency. Each bonus requires the related ability to be slotted as well as the player only wearing the matching equipment.

For health points, magic points, accuracy, spell cast speed and damage, the values are simply added on to the character sheet. For everything else, there is a single proficiency bonus that is multiplied on. See the attributes page for the appropriate formula.

Gaining Equipment Proficiencies

For Armor:

  • When a player is attacked (even if they evade/block/parry/absorb/resist, or if the monster misses), an occupied armor slot is randomly chosen for the chance at a proficiency gain.
  • When a player blocks an attack with a shield, they have an increased chance of gaining One-Handed proficiency.

For Weapons:

  • When a player attacks an enemy (even if the monster evades), there is a chance that they will gain proficiency with their active fighting style.

Magic Proficiencies

Effects

Magic proficiencies:

  • Lower the cast time and mana cost of spells by up to 25% (based on spell).
  • Increase the duration of sustained spells (beyond the effects of abilities).
    • This includes the duration of status effects.
    • Base durations can be found on the Spells page.
    • Durations can be increased by maximum a factor of 7 (supportive/curative spells) or 4 (everything else).
  • Increase a player's counter-resist and grants a specific element mitigation reduction with spells of that type.
    • Both effects depend on the player's proficiency factor, capped between 0 and 1:
    • prof_factor = (effective_proficiency - monsterlevel) / monsterlevel
    • Counter-resist bonus = prof_factor * 50%
    • Mitigation reduction = (prof_factor ^ 1.5) * 50
  • Supportive magic proficiency scales the power of Cure.[1]
    • 0 supportive proficiency yields 80%. Matching the player's level yields 100% base. Doubling the player's level yields 150% base.

Gaining Magic Proficiencies

Magic proficiency increases when casting a spell of the specific type even if it misses/is resisted. The chance of gaining proficiency when using a spell is directly tied to the cost of the spell compared to the player's base magic points. Spells auto-casted via Innate Arcana can give an increase each turn that they are kept active.

  • Elemental Proficiency can be increased by casting any Fire, Cold, Elec, or Wind spells.
  • Divine Proficiency can be increased by casting any Holy spells.
  • Forbidden Proficiency can be increased by casting any Dark spells.
  • Deprecating Proficiency can be increased by casting any negative status effect spell (e.g. Weaken).
  • Supportive Proficiency can be increased by casting any positive status spell (e.g. Haste) or any health-restoring spell (e.g. Regen).

Magic proficiencies can also be gained by purchasing certain Hath Perks. Each perk grants a 10% bonus to the base proficiency of the respective type of proficiency.

Gains

  • The base gain rate is much greater at lower levels (up to 5x the normal rate at level 1). This rate normalizes at level 250.
  • The rate at which proficiency is gained can be increased via Assimilator training at +10% per rank trained, up to a maximum of double the normal rate.
  • The chance for a proficiency gain decreases as the proficiency approaches the cap. The amount of gain is chosen at random as 0.01, 0.02, 0.03, or 0.04.
  • The chance of gaining proficiency when using a spell is directly tied to the cost of the spell compared to the player's base magic points.
  • Proficiencies cannot be gained during the turn the Defend, Focus, or Spirit Stance commands are used or when a player otherwise skips a turn. (Proficiencies can be gained while using Scan.)

Effective Proficiency

  • Effective proficiency can be seen on the right-side scroll section of the character page.
  • Base proficiencies are capped at a player's current level. However, bonus proficiency points on equipment, or through certain Hath Perks, allow players to exceed their cap.
  • Effective magic proficiency is capped at twice a player's level.
