    Notes
    Part of the Twilight Archmage Set.

    While it may look bad at first sight, having average damage comparable to a T4 Destruction Sphere Spell and shots that take a while to accelerate to full speed, this spell has the property of ignoring the defense of the target, making it very effective on high-defense enemies such as golems in the Lost Halls or endgame bosses such as the Void Entity or Oryx 3. The spell also gives a small MP bonus and a decent VIT bonus, which help the Wizard’s spellcasting and durability. In addition, since its shots start stationary in a tight ring before launching outwards, it is somewhat easier to land than other spells, particularly since enemies that walk into the bullet ring before it accelerates will take the full damage.

    The Ancient Eminence also has a secondary effect when coupled with the Defiled Equilibrium, allowing it to summon Inferno and Blizzard to assist the player on spell casts. Inferno and Blizzard can reach anywhere the cursor can, and deal both devastating damage as well as Slow with their rapid attacks. If you happen to have both items, equipping them simultaneously is highly advised to take full advantage of the spell’s summons.

    The birds summoned by this item act like standard summons with follow speeds of 1.15, and have the following sprites/projectile sprites:
