Lifeforce Manipulation

Necromancers have always specialized in cold and draining spells. Of course there are few exceptions as for example death ray. This mode allows necromancer to utilize full potential of death ray in different way. By manipulating the life energy they channel from themselves they change also the type of damage of the spell, or at least part of the damage to cold damage - the damage type, they most commonly use. This converts 10% of the damage of death ray to cold damage.

Infernal Protection

Infernal protection was a way for necromancers to protect themselves at borderline of life and death. When they try to utilizie full potential of their death ray spells, this leaves them very vulnerable. This gives them slightly better chance to survive if they are really low on health. Reduce damage increase you take from infernal power even further, but only while you are at negative hitpoints and the only thing keeping you alive is the spirit bonded to your body.

The death as reward for sacrificing their lives boost necromancers effort to harm death and necromancer enemies. This mean that death ray, which takes necromancer below their 0 health are boosted by each amount below 0... much more than normally.

Infernal Boon

Necromancers are masters of handling life energy. They are not healers, because they do not restore it they just use it for their needs. The real masters of lifeforce handling are also able to manipulate the draining spells, both targetted and area spells (i.e. infernal darkness). When this castmode is in effect, targetted spells no longer trigger blood conversion, with exception of a spell launched from weapon as a weaponspell (but not spellflash). The positive side of this equation is that draining spells cast directly by the necromancer instead use the extra lifeforce that would go to mana to create an infernal boon effect. Each point of excess drain from targetted spell creates one component of infernal boon that manifests as spellpower. Each 100 points of excess drain from area spells manifest as 1 point of wisadd bonus. And finally, with infernalboon command the necromancer can transfer their own lifeforce into third component of the boon, manifesting as 1 point of conadd bonus for each 200hp transferred. The infernal boon effects lasts only three rounds but each time it is updated the duration resets back to three rounds. The utility of the boon is when casting death ray. Each component of the boon adds one additional damaging ray from death ray. The ray from spellpower boon always does cold damage (regardless of lifeforce management). The ray from wisadd boon always does half-cold half-body damage and finally the conadd boon adds ray that is always body damage. All boon components can be charged gradually and each is independently capped at the equivalent of 40% of necromancer's maximum hitpoints.

Infernal Bond

Necromancer infernal power are not only making them stronger but also tougher. Their bond with infernal realm is second to none... It is so strong that after casting a death ray and when their life hangs on the borderline of death. The death through their bond protects them for very short time from most of finishing moves and reaper... yes... not from spells such as disintagrate or some other finishing spells. The chance is 20% to withstand mentioned finishing moves. Infernal bond activates only when death ray is cast with the benefit of infernal boon.

Dark Infernal Channel

This spell is a different version of infernal channel, in the sense that it imbues the weapon with infernal darkness spell as weaponspell. This works great in some situation but can be dangerous in others as it is an area spell and therefore would bring into combat other monsters in the room, should there be any (even newly arrived).

Dependencies: infernal bond

Infernal Darkness Mastery

Additional damage to infernal darkness based on level.

Dependencies: advanced infernal darkness

Infernal Hex

When the necromancer is using infernal channel with infernal boon he now can unleash its power with even the slightest physical connection, he doesn't need to draw blood. It is enough to just touch enemy's weapon or shield and the channel can extend through it right to the victim. With infernal hex the weaponspell from infernal channel has 4% chance to trigger even if the enemy parries the attack or blocks it with shield. It requires the touch so it won't work when the attack is dodged or otherwise avoided without physical connection. Opening the connection through enemy's weapon is not for free, however. Each successful hex costs the necromancer 100 mana. And obviously it only functions when necromancer has some mana.

Dependencies: advanced infernal boon

Improved Infernal Hex

The necromancer has improved his infernal hex to the point that it can create connection for infernal channel weaponspell with 8% chance.

Advanced Infernal Hex

Dependencies: enhanced infernal hex

Ultimate Infernal Hex

The necromancer can now utilize the infernal hex not only for infernal channel but for all items that can flash spells. With ultimate infernal hex enabled, each time infernal hex triggers it also allows all spellflash items to piggyback on the created channel and also trigger with their normal trigger chance. Beware, though, as this requires sufficient mana reserves to feed all the flashes.
