Buff Needed to the elites[edit]

Preservation and Wanderlust need another buff. Signet of Spirits replaces both of them in any spirit spamming build. Perhaps wanderlust's level should be increased and Preservation should target party members with low health.-- 00:13, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Spirit Attacks[edit]

I was just out farming for Echovald shields and decided to roam around and kill what ever else I could. Was using my Ritualist in hm and encountered an Am Fah Assassin. Now, I've always thought of a spirits attacks to be like wanding with a caster weapon but apparently Flashing Blades can block spirits attacks. The spirit weren't being obstructed by anything and their chance to hit seemed quite low compared to anything else they attack. So, do you think this is the same for all "chance to block" skills?

I'm going to say that's a yes. Skills that yeild x% chance to block will block spirit attacks. Next question would be, spirits that attack and have an added effect (blindness, disenchantment, etc) if u block the damage do you block the effect as well?

I just tested this: their range IS affected by height, and it can be blocked. They basically use longbow ranged attacks with a dark damage projectile animation. MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 12:12, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Skills which affect Binding Rituals[edit]

some1 should create a section for them and link them from here. -- 19:18, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

"Most spirits seem to deal dark damage"[edit]

Really? Mine seem to deal armor-ignoring damage. Dark damage does not ignore armor.-- 00:42, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

It actually shadow damage which is in itself armor-ignoring. The dark green/black color they lob indicates this. --Falconeye 23:29, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
Er, there are no shadow projectiles to base that statement on. 01:32, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Coloration of the lobs don't necessary identifies Damage-type. e.g my energy storage Platinum Staff makes purple lobs but deals Cold damage. Ox rider 11:24, 8 November 2010 (UTC)


Why is Signet of Spirits not in the list of binding rituals? 13:36, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

The short answer is that it's technically a signet, not a binding ritual. A more detailed answer is that binding rituals are an arbitrarily-defined subclass of skills, not a functionally-defined one. While every skill classified as a binding ritual summons a spirit, this behavior is neither required of a binding ritual nor limited to binding rituals. Hence the existence of a signet (also an arbitrarily-defined subclass of skills, by the way) that summons spirits. --Irgendwer 15:20, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
