Respawn

From NexusClash Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


When your hit points reach zero, you die and your spirit leaves your body and the battlefield. While in this non-corporeal state, you cannot access your inventory, speak, attack, or perform other actions that require your body. You can still use the faction chatbox and faction announcement box.

Clicking the Respawn button will return you to a fresh aspect on the battlefield. Where the new body appears will depend on your character class. Mortals and the Transcended will always respawn in Laurentia. Demons and the Fallen often respawn in Stygia, while angels and the Redeemed often respawn in Elysium. There is a 1/3 chance that a Tier 3 Angel or Demon will respawn in Laurentia, and a 2/3 chance for a Tier 2 Angel or Demon. Characters will respawn on a randomly selected tile, but will never respawn in the sea, in a river, or in certain remote areas.

The AP cost of respawning is your character level divided by 2 (rounded up): a maxed out (level 30) character must spend 15 AP to respawn, while a new (level 1) character must spend only 1 AP.

Note that although both Angels with a Morality of less than 20 and Demons with a morality of more than -20 can still respawn in their home planes, although they are not automatically immune to the Planar Damage there.

The skills Reanimation and Phylactery influence the mechanics of respawning for Liches. Furthermore, members of the Adamant Kinship planar guild will always respawn in Laurentia regardless of their class or alignment.
