PSYCHE I WASN’T DONE WITH CLASSES
A few days ago, I had changed the title from “13 new classes” to 14 to make way for the Mimic, a new Katana-wielding class and the final one to make each weapon category have 4 classes devoted to it. To keep up with my need for absolute symmetry, she wears no armor at all, as 28 classes with 3 armor sets will have a single remainder.
To make up for this, holding the hotkey for her ability item, the mirror, will take all damage inflicted to her (excepting hazardous terrain) and deal it as magic damage to herself. Higher tiered mirrors will reduce this damage by some percentage. Letting go of the hotkey will allow her to transform into a player nearest to her cursor within 3 tiles. That player’s weapon, armor, and ability are all copied, but not their accessory, nor their actual stats. As such, the Mimic is often stronger or faster than the copied player, but has to tolerate a mediocre health pool.
She as well has her own set of UTs:
The Mirror of the Burning Sun will lay a bomb under the copied player, similar to the Ghostly Prism, but more powerful and much more brief.
The Mirror of the Chilling Moon will slow all foes near the copied player for 5 seconds. These mirrors are similar, in that neither of them will copy for very long or reduce magic damage by very much.
The Shattered Mirror will leave a stationary duplicate of the copied player for 4.5 seconds, and also comes with a nifty attack boost (not that you’d keep it when mimicking a player).
Yata no Kagami will provide a hearty Evasive boost for both the copied player and the Mimic, and its held-hotkey damage reduction is impressively high at 30%, but it is very expensive in usage and in mana/second.
The Mirror of Divine Intervention is even costlier to use (same mana/second though), but it stuns anything near the copied player for 2 seconds. Save a life!
And finally, the Seance Mirror is another expensive mirror (mana/second this time), but it gives the Mimic Protection while holding the hotkey, making them essentially immune to status ailments. It even grants Protection to the copied player, but it’s the worst untiered mirror for actually taking damage.
Ok, now I’m done with the untiered ability items, for realsies. Although they might also need some item sets as well, but that’s another bump for another time.
