Preamble
Welcome to my guide on the specializations you can choose for your mage in Siralim Ultimate.

This guide will provide you with the information on what each specialization of mage in the game gets for a starting creature as well as their unique perks, in case you are beginning the game, thinking of restarting, wondering which specialization to unlock next, or are simply curious as to what each mage is capable of, since the game itself doesn't provide you with all the information on mage classes other than the one you selected.

The game tells you a rough outline of what your class does and shows you the creature you can get when you begin your adventure, but you only learn about what your perks do once you've started the game. This guide hopes to give players more information ahead of time and aid in making a more informed choice.

Each section also includes my notes and observations on each specialization in general - feel free to skip these if you would rather discover things for yourself, of course.

Last updated on the 23rd of April 2020, current as of game version 0.9.3.
Starting Out & Other Info
Classes and how they work
Before choosing your specialization, you should be aware of the game's Class system. Classes are essentially categories that mages and creatures fit into, with certain common themes between them. Creatures are, under most circumstances, only able to equip spell gems of their own class, which limits the spells they will have access to. Each class is also strong against one and weak against another, in a circular manner. This table should give you a quick rundown on information about each class:

Class
Aesthetics
Play Style
Strong Vs.
Weak Vs.
Gods
Life
Celestial, angelic
Defensive, hard to kill
Death
Nature
Surathli, Yseros, Lister, Perdition
Nature
Animalistic, primitive
Adaptive, has an answer to everything
Life
Sorcery
Torun, Regalis, Meraxis, Apocranox
Sorcery
Mystical, weird
Tactical, lots of tricks
Nature
Chaos
Zonte, Azural, Aeolian, Tenebris, Aurum
Chaos
Demonic, militaristic
Offensive, high attack power
Sorcery
Death
Gonfurian, Tartarith, Vulcanar, Venedon
Death
Undead, occult
Weakens enemies, hoards advantages
Chaos
Life
Erebyss, Vertraag, Friden, Mortem

If you're having trouble remembering the class circle (don't worry, most newer players take a little while to memorize it), use this rationalizing aid to help:
Life persists beyond Death
Nature feasts on Life
Sorcery corrupts Nature
Chaos ruins the plans of Sorcery
Death brings an end to Chaos


Starter Creatures
The specializations you start with each get given their own unique creature at the beginning of the game. For those of you returning from Siralim 3, these aren't particularly rare creatures this time around, so don't worry about being locked out of getting the other specialization's starters. After the short tutorial is finished, you will be given another creature to start you off, effectively giving you two before you ever set foot in a realm. Unlike previous Siralim games however, every specialization gets the same "second starter":

Unicorn Vivifier (Unicorn/Life)
Health
31
Attack
21
Intelligence
16
Defense
17
Speed
22
Trait: Reinvigoration
After this creature attacks, it resurrects a random ally with 50% Health.

This is a support creature with decent attacking power, and it will help to keep your other starter alive. It is a Life creature, so it will be effective against Death creatures and weak against Nature creatures, so keep that in mind.

Perk Points and Perk Costs
In this game, you gain Perk Points every time you finish a realm quest at the highest realm depth you've ever done. You gain 10 at a time for finishing your highest realm depth and 25 for defeating a storyline boss, so plan accordingly - unlocking powerful perks takes quite a while in this game and the game gets significantly harder as realm depth increases, so it's best to have a plan of what you want to unlock first.

Players returning from Siralim 3
Those among you who played Siralim 3 should very quickly be able to pick back up on this game, as the base game mechanics more or less work the same way. There are only two things to really make note of going into this game.

Firstly, as mentioned before, the starter creatures in Siralim Ultimate are not ultra-rare or super hard to find like the Godspawn starters in Siralim 3 were. In addition, specializations are now much easier and earlier to unlock and switch between, so the starting choice is really more of a time-saver than anything else. Godspawn still exist, but are found elsewhere - you can pick up your old friends eventually without too much of a fuss, so don't worry.

Secondly, some of you may wish to keep playing a similar mage to what you played in Siralim 3. In the following table I have noted the closest equivalents to Siralim 3's classes so you can hop right in to whichever one you want:

Siralim 3 Class
Siralim 3 Strategy
Closest Equivalent
Life Mage
Defensive Play
Cleric
Life Mage
Offensive Play
Inquisitor
Nature Mage
Lone Wolf
Druid
Nature Mage
Forest Pact
Tribalist
Sorcery Mage
In General
Evoker
Chaos Mage
In General
Hell Knight
Death Mage
With Saia
Animator
Death Mage
Without Saia
Defiler

Any Siralim Ultimate class not mentioned in the table is effectively a brand new play style that does not correspond or play similarly to a class from Siralim 3.

Which Specialization should I pick?

If you're a complete beginner to RPGs/the series and have no idea what you're doing, go with Hell Knight as it is simple and easy to use.

If you're looking for a simple, strong offensive specialization, go with Hell Knight for physical attacks, or Evoker for casting spells.

If you want a specialization with strong defenses, go with Cleric for tanking hits, or Monk for evading hits.

If you like to shut down enemies to stop them from acting, Defiler is the most straightforward, whereas Sorcerer has a more complex and conditional take on the concept.

The rest of the specializations have various unique strategies, so read their descriptions and consider carefully if you're looking for something different.

Advanced Specializations, Switching & Other Details
Once you defeat a certain boss somewhat early in the storyline, you will unlock projects that, when completed, unlock the other specializations you didn't choose, as well as some advanced specializations that weren't available at the beginning of the game.

Once you've unlocked other specializations, you can switch to them at any time without penalty using the wardrobe in your castle. The total amount of perk points you've earned is available to every class - so for example if you've earned 300 but spent them all on Druid perks, when you switch to Evoker you'll still have the full pool of 300 available for allocating on perks there.

On top of this, you can reset your perks at any time at the wardrobe for free if you want to try out different perks than the ones you selected, or need to rebuild your strategy.

Each Specialization has a series of achievements associated with it, "The Competent _" (e.g. "The Competent Necromancer"), for completing Realm Quests using that Specialization. At 50 quests and 100 quests you will be rewarded with new costumes you can switch to using the wardrobe.
Anointments
A specialization's perks are available to be equipped by any specialization as Anointments, which is a feature that unlocks much later on in the game. By default you can equip five Anointments, but a particular specialization can equip even more.

These allow you to mix and match, building your team even further with the power of other specializations. Not every perk is available as an Anointment however, so each perk in this guide details whether or not each perk can be used as an Anointment. In particular, Animator and Grovetender have no Anointments at all, and Spellweaver has very few.

Anointments must be gradually unlocked by defeating False Gods via Guilds, a feature that unlocks after defeating each Nether Boss twice, so it will be quite a while after finishing the story before you can get Anointments.
Hell Knight

Careful planning and uptight caution are nothing but a cause to doubt oneself. Hell Knights realize this fact, and instead opt to send their creatures charging headlong into battle, relying on brute strength and reckless attacks to ensure a swift victory.

As a Hell Knight, you'll favor creatures that specialize in attacking. Hell Knights grant their creatures increased critical damage and cause a variety of effects to occur when they attack. Hell Knights are surprisingly adept at spellcasting in a pinch, as well.

Savage (Magma Diver, Reckless Abandon)

Notes
Hell Knights are the specialization with the hardest focus on physical attacks, and they have a handful of other tricks just in case that attack strategies get shut down by enemies - though due to perks like Deadly Calm, Dreadnaught, and Indomitable, you will likely encounter these situations less often than other specializations would.

Getting the most out of this specialization will involve finding creatures that enhance your attacks further, finding ways to use on-hit effects and also launch extra attacks. The Asura Heartripper you are given to start with gets four attacks per turn - your Pyromania and Touch of Chaos perks will be far more likely to trigger in synergy with four hits. In addition it hits fairly hard, and your other perks will only make this damage even stronger.

Hell Knights also have a smaller focus on the Burning debuff, so finding creatures that can use Burning in various ways will benefit you - especially with the Kindling perk that will make your first monster set all enemies on fire at the beginning of each battle. This is also a great way to still damage monsters that have found a way to stop you from attacking or punish you if you do.

Hell Knight anointments can be obtained by defeating Nebodar.
Reaver

Perseverance, an iron will, and a touch of insanity are the perfect recipe for victory. Reavers live and die by this mantra, instilling their creatures with a cold and calculated anger that allows them to grow more powerful during battle while their foes tire out.

As a Reaver, your creatures will gain massive benefits in combat as battle continue to drag on. If your creatures manage to survive for just a few extra turns, they'll be able to devastate your enemies.

Notes
An interesting specialization with mechanics that almost nothing else in the game uses, Reavers don't just get stronger as battles wear on, but actually grow stronger from winning prior battles within a realm too using the Reign of Chaos and Onslaught perks. Once you've got a few victories going within a realm, you should find yourself increasingly steamrolling battles - and for those you still find tricky, you can always just hunker down for a few turns, wait for your strength to gather, and then lash out with far more power than you started with.

Reavers are also unique in that they can not just immunize themselves against battle fatigue using Stimulation, but actually thrive off it with Sap. This makes them without peer when it comes to attrition tactics - which, using Rapid Exhaustion and Red-Eye Flight, sets in far sooner than it does for other specializations.

Almost all creatures will benefit from Reaver's perk set, but finding creatures that grow increasingly more powerful as time goes on will have the effects of their traits amplified even further - the Apocalypse you are given to start with gets more powerful the more turns it takes for example, and its somewhat tank-ish stats allow it to last long enough to ensure this happens.

Reaver anointments can be obtained by defeating Loid Prime.
Pyromancer

Pyromancers quite literally thrive on watching the world burn. These maniacal magi ignite both friend and foe alike with a brilliant conflagration, causing their enemies to suffer gruesome deaths while empowering their allies with the power of flame.

As a Pyromancer, you'll make heavy use of the Burning debuff to deal damage to enemies over time. In addition, your own creatures will be afflicted with this debuff, but it will heal and empower them rather than dealing damage.

Supplemental Info
Status Effects
Burning (All Perks)
Creatures with Burning take damage based on the inflictor's Intelligence each turn.

Bomb (Flashover)
At the start of a creature's turn, its Bomb detonates, dealing damage to the creature equal to 80% of the afflictor's Speed. Then, this debuff is removed.

Notes
The Burning debuff runs off the inflictor's Intelligence, so to get the most effect out of this specialization you will want a casting team with high Intelligence stats - in addition, perks such as Kindle the Flame and Pyroblast do suggest using a team of casters to take full advantage.

Beyond that, your entire playbook revolves around the Burning debuff and it causing a ton of extra effects - find creatures that interact with Burning or debuffs in general and you'll get more out of this specialization. Keep an eye out for creatures that are immune to debuffs, but the amount of power you wield means you'll not have too much trouble with them once their allies are gone.

Pyromancer anointments can be obtained by defeating Nebodar.
Necromancer

Necromancers prefer to overwhelm their foes by summoning minions to aid their creatures in battle. Enemies are often so perplexed by the number of undead monstrosities charging at them from across the battlefield that they're dead long before they realize what even happened.

As a Necromancer, you'll summon minions to aid your creatures in battle. These minions can do all kinds of things to support your creatures - they can cause damage, boost your creatures' stats, debuff enemies, and much more.

Notes
Minions are essentially a special type of buff that offer specific enhancements to creatures that control them, but wear off more quickly - usually after performing their function. Necromancers mitigate this flaw by keeping minions around longer using perks like Army of the Damned, Undying Loyalty and Midnight Bargain. They're also much more adept at calling minions forth than other specializations, with a wide array of perks that summon up new ones.

In addition, they get stronger simply from having minions around - Meat Shield and Servitude stack up to offer power beyond what just the minions in and of themselves offer, which is usually considerable to begin with. They can also summon up the Four Horsemen much more easily, and if they get all four, they will start to snowball the battle in your favor by healing your own team and damaging the enemy team repeatedly.

The Dread Hound you begin with starts with and maintains a stack of Dire Wolves, a minion that enhances its master's attack power. Leverage this using your perks and other creatures that synergize with minion use to start battles with a great deal of immediate strength.

Necromancer anointments can be obtained by defeating Loid Prime.
Defiler

The difference between good and evil is often a matter of perspective, but the morality of a Defiler is simple enough for anyone to decide. These dark magi take sadistic pleasure in afflicting their adversaries with crippling diseases, reducing them to weakened husks that no longer have the capacity to defend themselves.

As a Defiler, you'll specialize in debuffs and stat-reducing effects. Enemies will be so weak that your party will be able to easily pick them off, even if they were originally much more powerful than your creatures.

Notes
Rather than making your own creatures stronger with perks like most classes, the Defiler chooses instead to weaken enemies and take away options they may have of defending themselves from you. The Curse perks knock out a significant chunk of enemy stats, so they'll be operating below their true capacity right from the start of battle - and perks like Tragedy, Hopelessness and Blasphemy limit the enemies options in recovering from or mitigating the weakening effects you heap upon them.

An important synergy Defiler has is with debuffs - while their effects are often debilitating to begin with, Defilers take this to another level entirely by ensuring they stick around longer, weaken them further, and with perks like Wane and Unholy Night, just cause direct damage simply by applying them.

The Dread Spectre you begin with needs to be attacked by enemies to leverage its weakening effect, but with your perk set the enemies will be hitting for rather feeble amounts of damage, so this is much less disadvantageous than it would otherwise be. If you can find creatures that apply or use debuffs to their advantage, they will synergize well with Defiler's perk set and weaken enemies even futher.

Defiler anointments can be obtained by defeating Loid Prime.
Animator

There's a fine line between genius and insanity, and it's difficult to say on what side of that line Animators reside. These fanatical magi spend their days perfecting their Animatus creations: unique creatures that grow more powerful as their master's dark experiments unveil new opportunities.

As an Animator, you will always have a unique creature in your party called an Animatus. Your entire battle strategy will likely focus on this creature. You can empower your Animatus, and even use your other creatures to make it stronger in combat.

Status Effects
Animated Weapon (Dancing Blade)

Animated Gem (Dark Anima)
After the Animated Gem's master manually casts a spell, this minion casts one of its master's Spell Gems as well, chosen randomly.

Notes
For Animators, everything hinges around the Animatus - every single perk they have relates to it and enhances it in a broad variety of ways. Some of them such as Cogmind or Molecular Betrayal even weaken your other creatures to strengthen the Animatus even further. Perks that do not relate to the other members of your party strengthen the Animatus in other ways, such as Dancing Blade and Dark Anima making its equipment more powerful, and Desensitization and Forbidden Magic giving it defensive options.

It's a rather all-in strategy and a dark counterpart to the Druid, and your other creatures will find little benefit from the perk set, so try to find creatures that complement the Animatus's strength using the perks that affect creatures within certain positions of the party.

Animator has no anointments that can be equipped by other specializations.
Bloodmage

The Blood Mage is a deranged spellcaster who is willing to do anything to overcome his foes - even at the cost of his own creatures' lives. This menacing spellcaster is adept at manipulating the lifeforce of allies and foes alike in his endless pursuit for power.

As a Blood Mage, your creatures will grow more powerful as they take damage. To facilitate these effects, the Blood Mage offers a variety of different ways to inflict damage on his own creatures.

Bleeding (Bloody Massacre)
Creatures with Bleeding take damage equal to 30% of their current Health at the start of each turn. Creatures that are resistant to Bleeding take 66% less damage from this debuff.

Notes
At first, Blood Mage seems like a high-risk high-reward class since it offers a lot of power in exchange for taking damage or being on low health, but perks such as Hemostasis and Sanguine Fortitude mitigate that risk considerably, giving Blood Mages an array of both offensive and defensive options.

In addition, since Blood Mages thrive off damage taken with perks such as Blood-Caked Blade and Sanguine Fortitude, they have a degree of resistance to battle attrition and will get stronger as the battle continues, though not to the same extent as Reavers. They can also synergize highly with the Bleed status effect since it will always be applied to enemies.

Bloodmage anointments can be obtained by defeating The Ancestor.
Cleric

The best offense, as some say, is a good defense. Clerics protect their creatures with powerful healing abilities and steadfast barriers, ensuring that not even the most tenacious of foes can overcome them.

As a Cleric, you'll specialize in healing abilities, as well as buffing, resurrection, stat-boosting effects, and providing your creatures with protective barriers. Your creatures will be extremely difficult to kill.

Barrier (Guiding Light, Luminesce, Premonition, Saving Grace, Strength of Soul)
Barrier absorbs a certain amount of damage. After the maximum amount of damage is dealt, the buff is removed. Barrier strength cannot exceed 200% of a creature's Maximum Health.

Notes
By far the most defensive specialization, Cleric revolves all around making it ridiculously hard for your creatures to be brought down. A great deal of Cleric's perk set revolves around Barriers, which are essentially an extra health pool over the top of your main health pool which is depleted first before your actual health. Guiding Light, Luminesce and Saving Grace will allow you to put up and maintain barriers, while Premonition and Strength of Soul make your creatures stronger while they have them.

Outside of barriers, Clerics still have a lot of strong defensive options - Guardian Angel and Lenience mitigate incoming damage, whereas Greater Healing and Revelation ensure that any damage that does get through is quickly reversed. A notable gap in the Cleric's defensive arsenal is a lack of protection from debuffs, so it may be a good idea to find spells and traits that cover this weakness.

You start with a Unicorn Holycaster, another member of the Unicorn race - this one heals rather than revives, so the two can keep each other alive in different ways. Clerics get a lot out of healing and buffing, so try to find creatures that can apply or strengthen buffs or throw good heals around to get the most out of your perks.

Cleric anointments can be obtained by defeating Saint Althea.
Inquisitor

Burn the witch, judge the heretic, and slay the non-believer. Inquisitors make use of healing effects just as much for offense as they do for defense. They enact justice on behalf of the gods, and no one will be spared from holy rapture.

As an Inquisitor, you'll have a solution at your disposal for every problem you encounter. In addition, Inquisitors are able ot use healing effects for offensive purposes - for example, when your creatures heal enemies, they instead cause damage to them.

Feared (Rebuke)
Feared creatures cannot gain stats.

Rebirth (Shining Force)
Creatures with Rebirth are resurrected with 50% Health when they die.

Notes
Inquisitor is something of an inverse of the Cleric - rather than using healing to augment their defenses, Inquisitors gain more offensive power as a result. In addition, many of their perks such as Admonish, Berate, Castigate, Condemn and Rebuke attempt to target specific weaknesses of classes to limit their available strategies.

Among their mixed options, Inquisitors also have something of an adaptive countering strategy, with Begrudge and Judgment trying to shut down enemy casters, and Contrition countering attackers. Divine Strength and Miracle use your defensive options by enhancing your damage output, and Flagellation allows you to outright weaponize heals by making them harm enemies.

The Valkyrie Scout you begin with counterattacks any time any enemy attacks, which will give you an edge especially if you synergize it with your anti-mage options. Beyond this, Inquisitors want to find creatures that can perform heals to get the most out of their perks, though since a lot of their perks weaken enemies rather than strengthen monsters, it isn't quite as paramount as it is with other specializations.

Inquisitor anointments can be obtained by defeating The Ancestor.
Monk

A strong defense is unnecessary when your foe is unable to strike you in the first place. Monks grant their creatures unmatched agility, enabling them to dodge incoming attacks and spells, and respond with devastating counter-attacks.

As a Monk, you'll boost your creatures' chance to Dodge attacks and spells. When your creatures Dodge, they'll unleash a devastating counter-attack on the enemy.

When your creatures counter-attack with Celerity, the attack has a 2% chance per rank to deal double damage.
Maximum Bonus: 50% chance

Supplemental Info
Status Effects
Agile (Good Karma)
Creatures with Agile have an additional, independent chance to dodge attacks.

Notes
Similar to the Paladin, the Monk revolves around using enemy attacks to launch counterattacks - but where the Paladin takes the hits that come their way, the Monk simply avoids them outright. Many of their perks such as Good Karma, Serenity, and Protective Winds increase the chance to dodge incoming damage, and then Celerity is used to offer counterattacks.

Celerity is a key perk since a number of others work off it - Blurred Strikes, Extended Reach, Pressure Point and Vital Strike all require Celerity to work, so strongly consider unlocking Celerity first. The order you want to unlock things in depends on whether you want to prioritize mitigating damage or dealing it back out, so think carefully about which perk you want to take next.

The Summer Aspect is a creature that has significantly large chance on its own to dodge attacks even before its considerable speed is factored in, playing into the Monk's perk set perfectly. Outside of this one, you may want to seek out other creatures with high speed and dodge-related effects to get the most out of your perks.

Monk anointments can be obtained by defeating Jotun.

Notes
Wardens are all about buffs - gaining pairs of them for particular actions or events, leading to them rather quickly stacking up a large amount of buffs. If you can find creatures that share buffs around, your whole team will suddenly be very stacked up - and there are all sorts of creatures in the game that synergize with buffs in general or specific kinds of buffs to power them up further, so there's a lot to choose from to synergize with this perk set.

Do note that since the buffs are granted reflexively, you won't start battles at full power unless you pull a extra tricks with your team composition.

Warden anointments can be obtained by defeating Jotun.

Witch Doctors are spiritual warriors who cast deadly hexes and curses on their enemies, forcing them to fight against each other.

Blind (Mass Hysteria)
Blind creatures cannot choose their targets when attacking or casting single-target spells.

Doppelganger (Vision Quest)
The Doppelganger's master has a 25% chance to take an extra turn.

Notes
Witch Doctors rely on getting the enemy to defeat themselves by causing them to damage each other more often, and make it much more debilitating when they do so. Perks like Bewitch, Maledict and Terrorize also cause somewhat of a cascading effect so that as the battle goes on, the enemy will cause additional attrition to themselves.

The perk set has a rather full reliance on this strategy however, and lacks options other than tricking the enemy - so beware situations where you may not have access to your usual tools, such as being blocked from inflicting debuffs or casting spells easily.

Witch Doctor anointments can be obtained by defeating Jotun.
Evoker

Evokers are the ultimate spellcasters. They excel at casting enhanced versions of spells multiple times in a row to overwhelm their enemies before they can act.

As an Evoker, you'll empower your creatures' spellcasting capabilities. Your creatures will be able to cast the same spell multiple times in one turn, and these spells will be much stronger than if they had cast them without your guidance.

Target takes a small amount of damage.

Status Effects
Silenced (Outspoken)
Creatures with Silenced cannot cast spells. Overwrites Scorned. Creatures that are resistant to Silenced can still cast spells, but deal 50% less damage with spells.

Notes
Evoker does two particular things very well - offensive versatility, and sheer attack power. With almost no defensive options other than Outspoken (which, make no mistake, is a very important perk for such a magic-heavy specialization), Evokers go all-in on magical attacks with perks like Echo and Mirror Image allowing spells to be cast multiple times in the same turn, then Spell Power and Arcane Power making those casts hit even harder.

An important perk to take note of is Efficiency - without this perk, Echo/Mirror Image will very quickly make you run out of charges, leaving you with your main form of attack depleted. Meanwhile, the five Mastery perks allow free equipping of any class of spell gem on any class of creature, which gives you drastically more options in what spells you can bring and who to equip them on.

The Spider Occultist has excellent caster stats, and joins in with a magic attack any time one of its allies casts a spell - due to Echo and Mirror Image, this attack itself will often be repeated several times. If you can find creatures that synergize well with spellcasting, you will do tremendously well as an Evoker.

Evoker anointments can be obtained by defeating Caliban the Unredeemed.
Cabalist

Cabalists can conjure Spell Gems out of thin air to be used by their creatures at any given moment. These magi prefer to employ high-risk, high-reward battle strategies to ensure their victory.

As a Cabalist, you'll enable your creatures to cast spells that they normally wouldn't have access to. While other people's creatures might run out of Spell Gem Charges, you'll be able to keep your creatures well-stocked with fresh Spell Gems at the start of every battle.

Supplemental Info
Status Effects
Animated Gem (Familiar)
After the Animated Gem's master manually casts a spell, this minion casts one of its master's Spell Gems as well, chosen randomly.

Arcane (Flow of Magic)
When an Arcane creature casts a spell, the spell does not consume any Charges. Then, this buff is removed.

Silenced (Unshackled)
Creatures with Silenced cannot cast spells. Overwrites Scorned. Creatures that are resistant to Silenced can still cast spells, but deal 50% less damage with spells.

Notes
Cabalists are somewhat unpredictable, but similar to Reavers will grow stronger as the battle carries on. Wild Magic and Invoke give your creatures random new spells during every battle, so you'll quickly find yourself becoming familiar with figuring out how to use what you've been provided with to your advantage.

On top of this, Evokers gain strength from the spells they're given in battle, with perks like Culmination, Hand of the Magi and Spellslinger synergizing with the amount of Ethereal gems you'll accumulate during battle to give you more power. If you can find spells or creatures that grant you even more spell gems, you'll get drastically stronger and stronger as the battle continues, though beware of strategies that disrupt or prey upon ethereal gem use.

You begin with a Djinn Dreamweaver, a powerful caster that uses an extra, random spell any time it casts a spell manually. This can have all manner of unpredictable effects, so be prepared for anything that might come of this.

Cabalist anointments can be obtained by defeating Mindwurm.
Sorcerer

Sorcerers are masters of controlling the battlefield. Why worry about offense or defense when your enemies can't move to begin with?

As a Sorcerer, you'll support your creatures by debilitating their enemies from afar. Generally, your enemies won't be able to act for the first few turns in battle as long as you're around.

Creatures with Scorned cannot attack. Overwrites Silenced. Creatures that are resistant to Scorned can still attack, but deal 50% less damage with attacks.

Snared (Spell of Roots)
Creatures with Snared are stuck at the bottom of the Timeline until they break free. They have a 10% chance to break free at the start of each creature's turn. Creatures that are resistant to Snared have triple the chance to break out of this debuff.

Sleeping (Spell of Slumber)
Creatures with Sleeping cannot act until they either take damage or this debuff wears off. Creatures that are resistant to Sleeping wake up at the start of their turns.

Notes
Using ridiculous amounts of trickery to completely shut down their foes, Sorcerers would no doubt be infuriating to fight against if they were opponents. The three Spell perks, Deep Freeze, Psychic Scream, Flabbergast and Singe all attempt to prevent opponents from taking actions at all, while others like Mental Fortitude and Fade allow your creatures to avoid certain enemy actions outright.

Other perks such as Gravity's Void and Solidarity enhance the Sorcerer's damage output in esoteric ways, though if your opponents have been shut down, then you'll have plenty of time to take your opponents out without them being able to retaliate at all.

The Frostbite Yeti that Sorcerers start with has very strong defenses and is able to freeze enemies, allowing you plenty of time to set up your strategy. Sorcerers synergize well with creatures that use or inflict debuffs, but given how many perks affect the enemy rather than your own team, it shouldn't be too hard to get most teams to synergize well with Sorcerer's perk set.

Sorcerer anointments can be obtained by defeating Mindwurm.
Paladin

Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth. Paladins are patient combatants who prefer to allow their enemies to strike first, and then return the favor tenfold with holy fury.

As a Paladin, your creatures will be able to endure even the most powerful of attacks. Each time your creatures take damage, they'll also damage their enemies.


This is an Advanced specialization and as such cannot be chosen at the beginning, nor does it get a starter creature.

Notes
Paladins are a heavily counterattack based class, who do a great deal of their damage simply by responding to incoming damage. The notable core perk is Retribution, which many of the Paladin's other perks work off of, so strongly consider unlocking some ranks in Retribution as your first pick.

After this, there are quite a number of ways that Retribution can be enhanced further - Art of War, Crusade, Wrath and Zeal all increase the damage Retribution does in various ways, whereas Glory and Hand of Light will strengthen the creature each time Retribution is used. Outside of this perk, the Paladin has a lot of defensive options such as Light's Augmentation, Perseverance, and Seraphim. So not only will your team be hard to kill, but enemies are likely to destroy themselves in the process of trying to bring you down.

Paladin anointments can be obtained by defeating Saint Althea.
Druid

Many people foolishly mistake a Druid's introversion for weakness. These magi believe that quality always trumps quantity on the battlefield. Contrary to tradition, they are often seen with fewer than six creatures at their disposal, but the havoc their limited numbers wreak when augmented by Druidic magic is a sight to behold.

As a Druid, you'll probably only want to have one (or up to three, later on) creatures in your party. Your creatures will gain massive benefits for being part of a smaller party.


This is an Advanced specialization and as such cannot be chosen at the beginning, nor does it get a starter creature.

Notes
Druids get stronger the less creatures they bring with them, with maximum synergy achieved when you have only one creature with you. Outside of the Companion perk, every perk the Druid has relates to benefiting from not bringing a full team in just about every possible manner (and even the Companion perk allows you to simply ignore a handful of creatures when it comes to the perk benefits).

Since Druid's perks apply to pretty much everything, almost any creature can be used with it, though you often lose the benefit of team-based synergies in return, however Companion can mitigate this to a degree.

Druid anointments can be obtained by defeating Imp Impington Prime.
Tribalist

Strength in numbers. Tribalists prefer to use creatures that belong to the same race or class, and take full advantage of the synergy and camaraderie they offer each other.

As a Tribalist, you'll want to assemble a party of creatures that belong to the same race. This will provide them with significant benefits that are exacerbated by their racial synergies with each other.


This is an Advanced specialization and as such cannot be chosen at the beginning, nor does it get a starter creature.

Bleeding (Waspid Slicer)
Creatures with Bleeding take damage equal to 30% of their current Health at the start of each turn. Creatures that are resistant to Bleeding take 66% less damage from this debuff.

Notes
Tribalists like to use creatures of the same race with each other - since creatures within a given race tend to have rather similar abilities to one another, this can often create teams that have a lot of raw power but a somewhat narrow tactical scope.

Where Tribalist really shines however is with particular races of creature that already self-synergize, such as Familiars or Hunters. In these cases, Forest Pact amplifies their already powerful synergies even further. Beyond this, most of Tribalist's perks will work for any team so long as you stick to using one race and class, so look around and find out what works well for you with them.

Tribalist anointments can be obtained by defeating Imp Impington Prime.
Trickster

Luck is not merely a matter of chance, but instead a force that can be manipulated to a clever man's will. Tricksters capitalize on this fact, enabling their creatures to re-roll the proverbial dice whenever fate doesn't turn out quite they way they hoped.

As a Trickster, you'll heavily inconvenience enemies by preventing them from taking action. You'll also gain the ability to manipulate the element of luck - for example, if a positive effect has a chance to activate but fails to do so, you can try again.


This is an Advanced specialization and as such cannot be chosen at the beginning, nor does it get a starter creature.

Disarmed creatures lose all benefits from their equipped Artifact.

Invisible (Nightstalker)
Invisible creatures cannot be targeted by enemy attacks or spells.

Proficient (Whetbone)
Proficient creatures gain 30% more benefits from their Artifact's Stat Slots.

Notes
Tricksters do a wide range of things, among them manipulating probability, strengthening artifacts, and weakening enemies - with the overall aim of tipping the odds in your favor.

Intent to Kill, Rebound, and Sleight of Hand all essentially mitigate poor luck by just trying again if things don't turn out in your favor, so you'll likely see favorable outcomes more often and you'll be more able to rely on chance than other specializations - whereas perks like Pilfer or Even the Odds just directly weaken the enemy in your favor.

Trickster anointments can be obtained by defeating Caliban the Unredeemed.
Astrologer

Astrologers are magi who specialize in creating a sound strategy before each battle. Oftentimes, their plans are so well-constructed that their creatures are able to take combat into their own hands without any further input from their master.

As an Astrologer, you'll plan most of your battle strategies before combat even begins. Astrologers allow their creatures to act on their own under certain conditions.

Ranks: 5
Cost Per Rank: 20
Anointment: Yes
Your creatures at the bottom half of the Timeline gain 1% Defense per rank at the start of each creature's turn.
Maximum Bonus: 5% Defense gained

Notes
This is a very complicated specialization that requires a carefully planned team to take full advantage of. It essentially predefines roles based on your creatures' stats; the three with the highest intelligence have strong casting advantages, the highest attack creatures will attack automatically, the one with the highest speed will always counter attacks, and the one with the highest defense will provoke to automatically act as a tank, so you will want a statistically mixed team rather than going all-in on one strategy.

Consider which specialization role each creature will end up in based on their stats, and try to choose traits that synergize with that - on-provoke traits for the tank, attacking and casting traits for the creatures with the highest stat in each. Also keep in mind that there are general purpose traits such as defending when they have debuffs, and gaining stats at the start of each creature's turn, so its not all about slotting each creature into a meticulous role.

Astrologer anointments can be obtained by defeating Hydranox.
Doombringer

The Doombringer draws magic from the Bastion of the Void to fuel his creatures with vast amounts of power. Doombringers specialize in allowing their creatures to perform actions multiple times in a row, all while nullifying his enemies' efforts.

As a Doombringer, your creatures' on-action effects (on-attack, on-cast, etc) can activate additional times, allowing you to chain brutal combos together to devastate your enemies. Doombringers are also able to prevent enemies' on-action effects from occurring as a defensive measure, as well.

Anointment: Yes
Your creatures' on-defend and on-provoke effects trigger 1 additional time per rank after they Defend or Provoke.
Maximum Bonus: 2 additional times

Notes
Doombringers are an interesting class in that it offers several options where rather than building your creatures' traits around your perk set, they simply power up whatever traits you are already using by doubling the effects and the value of those effects. However, there are diverse options that will allow you to use creatures in unintended ways by making healing, attacking and defending act as triggers for death, resurrection and provocation traits at the same time without actually performing those actions.

Doombringer anointments can be obtained by defeating Hydranox.
Grovetender

Grovetenders take great pride in their Herbling companions, strongly preferring to focus the bulk of their efforts on this prized creature over all the others. This peculiar mage knows just the right techniques to bring out her Herbling's full potential as it transforms rapidly in combat to wreak havoc on its foes.

As a Grovetender, you will always have a unique creature in your party called an Herbling. During battle, your creatures' actions will fertilize the Herbling, causing it to rapidly evolve until it turns into an unstoppable force of nature.

Notes
Similar to the Animator, the Grovetender's perks revolve around the Herbling, a creature given you to you for free when you complete the project to unlock it. Your core perk is Photosynthesis, which should be unlocked first before the others - this will allow your Herbling to evolve in battle, strongly empowering the other perks.

The Herbling can grow more powerful in its own right through perks like Biodegradation and Synthetic Resin, as well act acting as a guardian to your other creatures through perks like Acclimatization and Eternal Blossom. Deep Roots allows you a degree of flexibility in what role the Herbling will play - tanking with Provoke in the first slot, or protecting itself in the sixth slot.

Notably, each perk that grants it free spell casts all involve Nature-class spells, so any traits that enhance Nature casts, such as Imp traits, may come in very handy on your team.

Grovetender has no anointments that can be equipped by other specializations.

Spells
Murder of Crows (Misery)
Random enemies take a moderate amoutn of damage 3 times, plus 2 more times for each dead creature on the battlefield.

Notes
Purgatorians are a very high-risk, high reward class that thrive on their creatures dying or being dead. While your dead creatures can still act on your behalf and more strongly than they would while alive, and are effectively beyond retaliation, they still act randomly which gives you less ability to focus down priority targets.

In addition, creatures being dead will increase the risk and enemy focus on your living creatures - while Designated Survivor and Masochism can blunt this, you should still prepare your team build very carefully to allow your final creature to stay standing.

There are a handful of existing traits that allow creatures to act while dead that could synergize with this specialization - in addition, revival-oriented creatures such as Wights and Phoenixes may be of high value to a Purgatorian looking for perk synergies.

Purgatorian anointments can be obtained by defeating The Ancestor.

Rune of Lua (Aegis, Rune of Lua)
Target takes a large amount of damage, and the caster's on-attack effects are activated. 100% of this spell's damage is based on the caster's Current Health instead of its Intelligence.

Rune of Cor (Aggression, Rune of Cor)
Target takes a large amount of damage, and the caster's on-attack effects are activated. 100% of this spell's damage is based on the caster's Attack instead of its Intelligence.

Rune of Dun (Crescendo, Rune of Dun)
Target takes a large amount of damage, and the caster's on-attack effects are activated. 100% of this spell's damage is based on the caster's Defense instead of its Intelligence.

Rune of Nax (Destiny, Rune of Nax)
Target takes a large amount of damage, and the caster's on-attack effects are activated. 100% of this spell's damage is based on the caster's Speed instead of its Intelligence.

Rune of Sah (Embiggen, Rune of Sah)

Status Effects
Silenced (Diabolism)
Creatures with Silenced cannot cast spells. Overwrites Scorned. Creatures that are resistant to Silenced can still cast spells, but deal 50% less damage with spells.

Notes
Rune Knights are highly flexible, able to modify their bonuses within each battle depending on which Rune Spells they cast - for instance, a team full of Nature creatures casting Nax will amplify their dodge and critical chance, whereas Life creatures casting Lua will become tankier and harder to kill. Obviously the Rune perks that confer these spells are critical to your perk set, so activate them first depending on which creatures you're using.

In addition, generalist enhancements are available such as Discharge and Empowerment, but everything hinges around casting Rune spells as much as possible - the only perk that does not revolve around doing this is Diabolism's silence immunity. Also, since the Rune spells activate on-attack effects despite being a spell cast, it may be worth finding some traits that use these effects to get even more power out of them.

A small handy tip - if you're struggling to remember which Rune is which, each one starts with the same letter as the class it's from. Life is Lua, Chaos is Cor, and so forth.

Rune Knight anointments can be obtained by defeating Lost Construct.

Chaos, Death, Life, Nature and Sorcery: the five components that gave birth to the land of Rodia. Spellweavers can call upon these elements to imbue their creatures with powerful inscriptions to decimate their foes in battle.

Sorcery Variant:

Notes
Spellweavers are a complicated class that make their spells gain gradually more powerful additional effects the more they cast them, as well as having exclusive access to the powerful Colorwave spell. Since Colorwave requires 1 of each infusion as "ammo", you will want a diverse range of spells to cast, preferably one of each type across your team. Your key perks are the Infusion perks as well as Ultimate Manifestation, so be sure to unlock those first if you intend to make use of those infusions.

Infusions increase the power of the additional effect each spell gains from your perks, as well as making your creatures stronger in general. In this regard the specialization is similar to Rune Knight, but gains power from all spells rather than specific ones. Spellweavers would gain a lot of mileage out of casting several times per turn, allowing them to stack up infusions more quickly - but of course, keep an eye on your charges if you intend to do that!

Spellweaver anointments can be obtained by defeating Hydranox, however there are very few available.

Blighted (Losing Touch)
Creatures with Blighted cannot be healed and take damage from healing effects equal to 25% of the effect.

Notes
With unique access to the Inverted debuff, you will be heavily reliant on maintaining and applying the debuff for your leverage. Thankfully it functions as a defense mechanism by causing enemies to heal you instead of doing damage, and you can leverage your Paradox perk to trigger your creatures' on-heal effects for additional trickery.

In addition, perks such as Counterintuitive, Hallucination and Question Everything invert negative effects into positive ones if you apply them to your own team, causing certain spells and traits to get new tactical leverage they did not have before.

Dreamshade anointments can be obtained by defeating Mindwurm.

Notes
Though primarily a solid defensive bulwark, Siegemasters are able to use their defensive power as an attack angle using perks like Explosive Armor, The Best Offense and Thorns.

Windrunners rely on stacking as much speed as possible, and leveraging it in battle to stay alive long enough for the effects of perks such as Accumulation and Derivation to cascade the battle in their favor. Curiously, their perkset has relatively little in the way of offensive options and is almost all about gaining or preserving speed, so you will have to leverage your creatures' traits much more than with other specializations to get the most out of Windrunner.

Windrunner anointments can be obtained by defeating Imp Impington Prime.
Fanatic

Fanatics devote their lives to serving the gods. From dusk until dawn, these magi toil away at a neverending list of demands to better-serve each of the 21 gods of Rodia. Such devotion is not without purpose, however, for the Fanatic is able to call on the gods' power to serve him in his time of need.

As a Fanatic, you'll be able to take additional Avatar creatures with you on your journey and empower them and their Ultimate Spell Gems with potent magic. Fanatics also make use of Godspawn creatures and create powerful synergies between them and their Avatar allies.


NOTE: Fanatic is special even among non-starter specializations, as it requires you to obtain an Avatar creature and bring it to Everett when attempting to start the project to unlock it.

Notes
Fanatics are a true endgame class, since they hinge around the use of creatures that are only available some time after finishing the game's storyline. You will want a party comprised entirely of these creatures, since the specialization does not offer any kind of bonus to any other type of creature.

Since Avatars tend to have very powerful traits but you are only limited to one per party, Army of Gods' ability to bring three with you is absurdly strong - and you can get more within battle through use of the Martyr perk. Try to remember which Godspawn corresponds to which Avatar - the god you purchase it from is the Avatar you will invoke through "respective Avatar" perks. It may be better to not use an Avatar AND their respective Godspawn in a single party composition if you plan to make use of Martyr, as Avatar traits tend not to stack. Otherworldly and Unstoppable Force will also prevent your Ultimate Spells from being shut down or blocked by Silence and Seal, but bear in mind that other factors may prevent the casting of these spells.

Fanatic anointments can be obtained by defeating Saint Althea.
Royal

Authority is passed down through generations, but true power must be earned. A master of all professions, the Royal possesses the unique ability to combine the powers of other specializations at will.

As a Royal, you'll be able to use more Anointments than anyone else, allowing you to create your own, custom specialization.


NOTE: Royal is special even among non-starter specializations, as it requires you to unlock all other specializations before you can start the project to unlock it.

Perks
Master of All
Ranks: 1
Cost Per Rank: 1500
Anointment: No
You can equip 10 additional Anointments.

Notes
This specialization has no perks of its own, instead using the Anointments system to choose up to 15 perks from every other specialization as you see fit, essentially making it the ultimate custom hybrid specialization.

Royal offers an unprecedented amount of flexibility, so look through the other specializations' perks and see what kind of combinations you can come up with!

Royal itself has no anointments that can be equipped by other specializations.

That's something I needed to update but missed, thank you!

They must have changed the Asura Heartripper (Hellknight starting creature) before release. Mine has 200% increased critical damage for it's trait, not the 4 attacks. Might want to check the current build and update accordingly.

Are you sure about saying "If you can find creatures with effects that trigger when an enemy dies, you can leverage Even the Odds to do even nastier things." when the description says "This perk does not trigger on-death effects."?
