Pretty good

Cults good but weak it needs some buff since unseens conversions ard stronger

If this somehow gets accepted into the game, Paladin might need a buff.

Considering how the cult opperates I actually think this is a downgrade.

Unlike with the Unseen, knowing someone’s class type is disproportionately important due to how Cult conversion works. Having a reliable type check is thus more valuable than an unreliable class check. If you really want to buff it then I’d make it also return faction as well as class type.

Until we have more data on how well cult is doing I wouldn’t touch Ritualist TBH.

This seems incredibly weak. There isn’t much of an advantage to having the Acolyte visit since the CL is just as expendable

Ritualist already has a unique effect when Sacraficed

How exactly?

So if they are jailed what happens?

Due to how Seeker is overshadowed by the other converts, it’s biggest value being removing an invest from the game, I think that changing his flirt into something that gives more info is much more desirable. Also I like this ability so I want to throw it on as many classes as I can (/s)

I believe Brotherhood needs a nerf, but I can agree with waiting on actual stats with it. For now it’s just an idea.

This rework is making the starting CL more valuable due to the ability to chain convert using his passive.

This would replace it.

Pity convert rules.

Think support empower.

I don’t disagree with buffing Seeker. I’m just saying that this isn’t a buff in the first place.

I think it’s an ability with a higher skill ceiling and arguably similar skill floor.
Your odds of hitting at least same flirt result are pretty high.
Having it be Type + Faction seems boring imo and I like this ability

Debatable but misses the point

Irrelevant. Simply hitting the right flirt result is not enough to get the information you want.

Also 1/3 aren’t good odds compared to the current guaranteed results.

The value of Seeker is diminished because of the meta.

Reaper (Only countered by knights and can easily kill them) or randomly converted enforcer is the only why you’re going to want to not have open claim meta.

(Stonewall, sage ect don’t do jack againist king guards).

The Sage gives you bleed Kills. Kings are immune but healers are not.

Phys inoculates prince

Sometimes. If you are fast enough (as assassin) they won’t and if you don’t think you are then you can still get 2 free Kills.

Or just attack the Prince twice. Safeguards mechanic’s ensure that he can’t guard both attacks

Lol? safeguard makes then immune for the night what do you mean.

You can’t target the same player twice in a row with it.

what?

oh wait nvm you right I forgot
