Seal abilities are short term self-buffs that compose one half of the baseline paladin combat system.

General informationEdit

A seal is a self-buff which temporarily boosts the paladin's power for thirty minutes. The system of interactions between the various Seals and Judgements compose the main bulk of the paladin class's combat system.

Seals cause an additional effect to occur on successful melee attacks. These effects vary greatly, from returning mana or health to causing high amounts of Holy damage. In addition, all seals have an "unleash" effect that is activated through using a Judgement ability. By unleashing a seal, the paladin can deal a large amount of Holy damage instantly to the target (the exact amount and effect depending on the active seal) as well as cause additional effects based on the Judgement.

All seals last for 30 minutes and are treated as a magic-type non-dispellable buff.
