Talent Icons: Magic


With the layout out of the way, it's time to start looking at creating icons for the new batch of Talents being implemented. First up though, a slight update of the Arcadia perk icon "Smart Start", as you'll now get the wand seen below rather then the green rod:


Okay, onto the Talents. We'll begin with the Magic talents, which I've managed to put into a single long gif with the power of Photoshop (wohoo):


In order of appearance:

Concentration – Increase resistance to having the (magic) spells channeling interrupted by enemy hits. For this icon I made an eye, as it feels like you often focus your eyes when you concentrate. Or maybe that's just me? 

Fast Talker – Increases castspeed. And yet I used an open mouth to make a play at the name of the Talent, rather at something relating to speed. To make it more readable I first wanted to show some of the person's face, but ended up changing it around to showing their neck and some clothing instead. 

Soul Siphon – Hitting an enemy with a wand projectile will grant the user some EP. My idea here was a slime which oozes of EP. My first version of this wasn't very readable so I changed it to small orbs instead of a crazy ooze. 

Specialist – Increase damage depending on how many skillpoints you have in the same magic tree (as an example, the more fire skills you level, the stronger your fire skills will be overall). Supposed to be a magnifying glass on top of four colors representing each elemental skill tree. 

Wand Master – Icreased damage from wand projectiles. And here we have a wand, and an arrow pointing upward! Might change the color from green, as green, as always, tend to make people think about healing. We'll see!

Final lineup:


And as always, these are subject to change as we come up with better ideas or hear your feedback!
