Alteration Staff – A New Skill Line

TheElderScrolls10 - Alteration Staff - A New Skill Line

When I first came back to ESO (wait, that sentence makes no sense but okay) from Skyrim, the first thing that struck me was that I wanted to play as Alduin (which I did). The second thing that struck me was that Alteration, Illusion, and Conjuration were completely missing from the game (and yes, I know Mages Guild/Psijic Order and some class skills exist which do these kinds of things, but class skills are class locked and the Mages/Psijic trees don't cover nearly everything).

So here's an idea for a few Alteration Staff skills for ESO:

Light Attack type: Single Projectile

Heavy Attack type: Laser Beam

Transmute – Utimate – Transform an enemy under 50% health into gold, instantly killing them (does not work on bosses), Transmuted enemies drop 50 to 100 extra gold – 150 Ultimate

  • Golden Touch – Transmute morph – Transform an enemy into gold, instantly killing them (does not work on bosses), Transmuted enemies drop 150 to 250 extra gold – 150 Ultimate – Can now Transmute an enemy regardless of remaining health, and Transmuted enemies drop more gold
  • Channeled Transformation – Transmute morph – Transform all enemies around you under 50% health into gold, instantly killing them (does not work on bosses), Transmuted enemies drop 50 to 100 extra gold – 300 ultimate – Costs much more, but Transmutes all enemies around you under 50% health

Ironflesh – Active – Give yourself Minor Resolve and Minor Ward for 20 seconds, as well as a damage shield that reflects 10% of your max HP for 10 seconds – 1800 Magicka

  • Iron Aura – Ironflesh morph – Give yourself and up to two nearby allies Major Resolve and Major Ward for 20 seconds, as well as a damage shield that reflects 10% of your max HP for 10 seconds – 1800 Magicka – Now affects up to 2 nearby allies
  • Ebonyflesh – Ironflesh morph – Give yourself Major Resolve and Major Ward for 20 seconds, as well as a damage shield that reflects 25% of your max HP for 10 seconds – 2500 Magicka – Gives Major Resolve/Ward instead of their Minor variants and increases how much damage the shield absorbs, but costs more Magicka

Stasis – Active – Immobilize an enemy for 3 seconds – 1400 Magicka

  • Paralyze – Stasis morph – Stun an enemy for 3 seconds then immobilize them for 3 seconds – 1400 Magicka – Stuns before immobilizing
  • Temporal Fang – Stasis morph – Immobilize an enemy for 3 seconds, deal 950 damage to the enemy if they are still immobilized when the effect ends – 1400 Magicka – Damages the enemy if they are did not break out when the effect ends

Magnetic Crystal – Active – Summon a crystal that pulls enemies towards it and lasts for 10 seconds – 1600 Magicka

  • Unstable Magnet – Magnetic Crystal morph – Summon a crystal that pulls enemies towards and and lasts for 10 seconds, enemies touching the crystal are knocked down for 2 seconds and take 800 magic damage when the effect ends – 1600 Magicka – Explodes when the effect ends, damaging enemies and knocking them down
  • Black Hole – Magnetic Crystal morph – Summon a crystal that rapidly pulls enemies towards and and lasts for 10 seconds, this effect cannot be dodged or blocked – 1600 Magicka – Pulls enemies faster and cannot be dodged or blocked

Energy Shard – Active – Summon a pylon that lasts for 20 seconds and gives allies within its radius Minor Brutality, Minor Sorcery, and Minor Heroism – 2800 Magicka

  • Draining Shard – Energy Shard morph – Summon a pylon that lasts for 20 seconds and gives allies within its radius Minor Lifesteal and damages enemies within its radius for 150 damage per second as well as applying Minor Breach and Minor Fracture – 2800 Magicka – Gives allies Minor Lifesteal instead and gives enemies Minor Breach and Fracture as well as damaging them
