Void Templar
Void Templar
Races: Aelin, Ethron, Human, Shuddeni, Kankoran, Srryn, Nefortu
Alignments: Any Non-Good and Non-Chaotic

Combining the diabolic magic of the Void with a keen swordmanship, these templars are among the most feared in Avendar. The origins of their training lie with the shuddeni and their campaign of terror during the War of Night. The resulting mix of disciplines resulted in a warrior who can bind demons into weapons, feast on the energies of his foes, and take on the aspects of a demon himself.

Tips

The forms offered by this class are some of the best in the game and should be a cornerstone of an effectively played character. Form of the wraith can be nearly indefinitely maintained, and the damage reduction it offers stacks with many other common defensive spells, such as sanctuary and stone skin. When paired with high saves, it can reduce very powerful in-round spells significantly. Form of the asp applies strength and dexterity damage every time it triggers, as well as bleeding. The combination of these factors can force unprepared opponents to drop weapons, defend less capably, and be unable to become invisible, hidden or camouflaged.

A void templar has a wide variety of darkness-related abilities. He can see in darkness with night vision, so he no longer requires glowing items or other light sources to see. Additionally, when blind, he can fight and defend as capably as when he can see. The dim spell can darken a room, requiring those in it to have glowing items or infravision to see (much as the natural state of things at night or underground), in addition to dispelling the room-lighting effects of continual light. Shadow strike will deal damage as well as carries with it a fixed chance of blinding them without the opportunity for a spell save. In more dire circumstances, globe of darkness can be used to create an area of darkness that most light sources cannot penetrate. This can be particularly effective for hiding, as it can remove the void templar and those with him from where.

It should be noted that void templars are especially vulnerable to spirit templars. Spells such as radiance will pierce both mundane and magical darkness, while holy damage from consecrate weapon will deal more damage through form of the wraith and demonic possession. Exorcism is a particularly dangerous spell to be aware of, as it can release demon bindings and end demonic possession immediately. Conversely, a void templar is effective against water templars, as they can counter enemy forms and reduce cold damage with mire of Oame. Additionally, defilement of Logor can create weapons which pierce through the protection of sanctuary, upon which a water templar relies.

Negative damage is a thorough part of a void templar's repertoire. He can change his weapons to deal negative damage using desecrate weapon, deal heavy negative damage with harm, and increase an opponent's vulnerability to negative damage using blight of Adduthala. The defilement damage type also counts as negative for these purposes. This makes a void templar a particularly dangerous enemy to ch'taren, who already have a racial vulnerability to negative damage.
