Introduction

In an age long past, when mankind flourished under the radiance of arcane mastery, the island of Vylbrand was home to a city-state called Nym. Though the history of that age tells of countless wars waged with earth-shattering incantations, it was the brilliant strategic maneuvering of Nym's scholars that allowed their mundane army of mariners to throw back would-be conquerers time and again. These learned men and women defended the freedom of their tiny nation with their unique command over spell-weaving faeries, utilizing the creatures' magicks to heal the wounded and bolster the strength of their allies.

Scholars manifest their spells through earth and air, but their unique maneuver and experise allow them to conjure forth faeries to help in battle. Only the scholars may command their conjured faeries to cast healing abilities and restore their fellows in battle.

Job mechanics

Aetherflow & Faerie Gauge is Scholar's Job Gauge.

Aetherflow & Faerie Gauge in PvE

Aetherflow gauge1.png

The Aetherflow Gauge displays the current strength of an arcanist's or scholar's aether. As the player increases in level, the amount of aether that can be stored at one time will increase to a maximum of 3 units. Aether is consumed when executing certain actions such as Energy Drain.

Faerie gauge1.png

The Faerie Gauge displays the current amount of fae aether accumulated within a faerie. Fae aether is accumulated by using actions such as Energy Drain and Excogitation (acquired at level 62) which deplete the Aetherflow Gauge.

Maintaining an Aetherpact (acquired at level 70) slowly consumes fae aether.

Aetherflow & Faerie Gauge in PvP

The Aetherflow Gauge displays the current strength of an arcanist's or scholar's aether. As the player increases in level, the amount of aether that can be stored at one time will increase to a maximum of 3 units. By using the PvP action Summon, which drains the Faerie Gauge, players can call forth the faerie Eos. Your Faerie Gauge will continue to decrease at a set rate while Eos is summoned. Scholars can build up the Faerie Gauge by casting Physick, Adloquium, or Lustrate while their party is engaged in combat and is losing health.
