First Arcanist

Thalyssra is a Support oriented Specialist that works really well with targets that consume a lot of Mana and protecting squishy targets from dive oriented enemies, upon completing her Combat Trait Quest she grants utility to the team - be it just the Mana regen or other augmentations. She can also forgo a bit of her utility to fulfill the role of an Ability oriented Assassin.

Upon completing her Combat Trait she'll change from her Wretched into Nightfallen form



Combat Trait

Arcane Thirst
Thalyssra's energy bar is replaced with Thirst which rapidly increases if she does not reduce it through Leylines or Ancient Mana.

Ancient Mana reduces your Thirst by 10 and heals for 25% more

Quest Combat Trait: Maintain your Thirst under 20 for a total of 150 seconds.
Upon completing the Quest your Combat Trait will be replaced by Gift of the Ancient Magi

I like concept of support for mages. I have one question. Does Thalyssra change appearance after changing quest?
Mandorik (2) | January 20, 2018 4:19pm
Yes, she does. Sorry, I ended up forgetting to add that somewhere.
