This can cause an anomaly. Doing so will deactivate this sustain and all stances.STARGAZER (EMPYREAL)
If you're like me, you recognised unfamiliar talents being used by Astrologers and Astral Conjures and Stargazers. If you've been here longer than me, you may have recognised them as Empyreal talents, finally added to canon after languishing in the forgotten depths of the addon forum. Immediately I decided to polish them (very slightly) and give them to players, so. Here we are. All credit goes to DarkGod and everyone who helped with Embers, and to Umbrall, creator of the class - some of these talents are impossible, they boggle the mind.
The Stargazer (A new name for the Empyreal to prevent conflict) is a celestial class focusing on projectile manipulation. Depending on your choice in the game options, it may have my modified/fixed Void talents, and it may have Chronomancy. By default, it has neither - go into Game Options to change it, then start a new game.
They have +6 Magic, +3 Constitution (I'm not sure why they say they're con-based), no life per level modifier and 90 base life. They have the following categories:Talent Categories Known (Unlocked)
Chronomancy/Gravity (If Chronomancy edits enabled)Talent Categories Known (Locked, low level)
Celestial/Twilight Talent Categories Known (Locked, high level)
Celestial/Void (If any edits allowed)Talent Categories Known (Generic, unlocked)
Chronomancy/Energy (If Chronomancy edits enabled)

As the cosmic energy moves, it pulls in targets adjacent to it, dealing %0.2f darkness damage and granting you 1 negative energy per hit.Supernova

Summons a clone for %d turns which casts all the spells you cast, dealing %d%% damage and having %d%% health. Additionally, all light damage the clone deals becomes darkness damage and all darkness damage becomes light damage. (This one I had to hack; it didn't have a working AI. I copied the one from Forgery of Haze, seems to work fine.)Celestial/Void
Wield powerful techniques based on darkness.Nebula Spear
Fire out a spear of cosmic energies. If it hits an enemy it deals %0.2f damage, otherwise it explodes in a thin cone of radius %d at the end of its range, blocked by enemies, which deals %.02f to %0.2f damage depending on how much the enemies block. (This had neither cost nor cooldown. I have it a minor negative negative cost, as they didn't have one, and a moderate CD.)Crescent Wave
Fires out a crescent projectile. If it hits an enemy it deals %0.2f damage and roots them for one turn.
If another projectile damages them within %d turns, they take half that damage and are rooted again. (This one I made largely from scratch, as the original wasn't even coded. The original intention was for a curving clockwise bolt, I think. Presumably that was hard/impossible to code. This is, sadly, just a normal bolt.)Twilit Echoes
The target feels the echoes of all your light and dark damage for %d turns.
Light damage slows the target by %0.2f%% per point of damage dealt for %d turns, up to a maximum of %d%% at %d damage.
Dark damage creates an effect at the tile for %d turns which deals %d%% of the damage dealt each turn. It will be refreshed as long as the target continues taking damage from it or another source while Twilit Echoes is active, dealing its remaining damage over the new duration as well as the new damage. (This was given a cooldown (v low) but otherwise not touched.)
Summons the starscape in the surrounding area in a radius of %d. For %d turns, this area exists outside normal time, and in zero gravity. In addition to the effects of zero gravity, Movement of projectiles and other creatures is three times as slow. Spells and attacks cannot escape the radius until the effect ends. (Untouched. May have been borrowed by Midnight? Might need to actually do a little more...)
