Introduction

Ever has man coveted knowledge, and none more so than that of his fate. Thus did he labor to master the skill of foresight—but initial efforts bore little fruit. That is, until he looked to the stars above, which foretell the coming seasons, and learned to read the heavens.

Though this gift is known today as astrology, the people of Sharalyan saw fit to not only read the stars, but to write their movements as well. By attuning their aetherial energies to that of constellations, they learned to wield magicks with heretofore unseen properties.

Thus was astromancy born—a new form of magick which grants its users power over fate. Employing a star globe and divining deck in their miraculous deeds, fortune always smiles upon these masters of arcana.

Job mechanics

Arcana & Divination Gauge is Astrologian's Job Gauge.

Arcana & Divination Gauge in PvE

The Arcana Gauge allows astrologians to keep track of which card (arcanum) is currently drawn. An arcanum is drawn by using the action Draw, and is placed in the middle of the gauge. Using the Play command executes the arcanum's corresponding action.

Upon learning the action Enhanced Draw II, you'll be able to view Astrosigns. Lunar, Solar and Celestial are the three astrosigns, and one of these will be applied when executing a card action. When three signs have been applied, you can use them to perform Astrodyne.
