You can manipulate earth and stone to defeat your foes. The crushing force of many Earth Powers can reduce a target's Defense.

Being of the Earth, you are the most powerful while on the ground. While grounded, your attacks increase Seismic Pressure. As your Seismic Pressure increases, the cooldown of other Seismic Blast attacks is reduced and your chances of triggering Seismic Shockwaves around you also increase. These Seismic Shockwaves will have a chance of knocking back foes and, while standing on the ground, empower some of your attacks. Rock Shards will have its area and damage increased. Seismic Force will decrease the cooldown of all recharging Seismic Blast attacks by a moderate amount. Stalagmite will deal a large amount of damage.

      • The DoT damage uses AT modifiers: Ranged_Damage for attacks with base ranges > 20 ft and Melee_Damage otherwise.
      • The DoT damage is scaled based on the attack's cast time (scales between 0 and 3 seconds). This mostly ensures a constant DPS increase despite the speed of one's attacks.

    • If Brimstone Armor is owned, this power will also grant Geothermal Power every 2 seconds, increasing the damage inflicted by Brimstone's Fire by 8% per stack.

Stealth Toggle Exclusivity Removal [Focused Feedback: Stealth Toggle Exclusivity Removal]

Player Stealth Toggles, with the exception of temporary powers, are no longer exclusive. Players can now use multiple stealth toggle powers at the same time, however the stealth radius, defense, and threat level of these powers will not stack. Instead, the strongest effect from these powers will be used (much like how travel power stacking currently works). The powers that fall within these stealth toggle rules are listed below.

List of Stealth Toggles

  • Arctic Fog
  • Cloak of Darkness
  • Cloaking Device
  • Energy Cloak
  • Field Operative
  • Infiltration
  • Mask Presence
  • Shadow Fall
  • Shinobi
  • Shinobi-Iri
  • Stealth
  • Steamy Mist
  • Super Speed
  • Superior Invisibility

Various Power Changes

  • All/Radiation Melee/Irradiated Ground: This power can now only proc once every 10 seconds and hit up to 5 targets.
  • Blaster Manipulation/Fire Manipulation/Burn:
    • No longer summons multiple burn patches (summon on self only).
    • Power now hits 5 enemies instead of 4.
    • Up-Front damage radius increased to 15ft.
    • Burn patch no longer triggers procs (the up-front damage still does).
    • Burn Flames now inherit the power Accuracy enhancements.
    • Burn patch now inherit AT classes, caps and modifiers.
    • Burn cast time lowered from 2.03s to 1.47s.
    • Recharge changed from 25s to 45s.
  • Blaster Manipulation/Fire Manipulation/Combustion: Cast time lowered from 3s to 2.4s.
  • Call to Arms: No longer grants base defense. Now it grants defense to all types.
  • Edict of the Master: Now grants toxic defense.

Power Bug Fixes

  • Dominator Assault/Sonic Assault/Shriek: Can no longer be used while mezzed.
  • Dominator Assault/Sonic Assault/Scream: Can no longer be used while mezzed.
  • Prestige Utility/Renewal of Light and Return to Battle: These powers now share a Recharge Group and should no longer cause doubly long cooldowns when used.
  • Procs from Bombardment, Sudden Acceleration, and Power Transfer: No longer boostable.
  • Munitions Mastery/Freeze Ray: Tintable version FX now always fires from the correct point of the rifle.
