    Default Charge meter..?

    Sorry if this has been posted previously, but what exactly does the 'Charge Meter' do for a mage once it's full?

    Your hair turns yellow and you scream for about 15 minutes while energy lines radiate from you.





    Also, you can cast spells that release those charges for great effect. Actually, you don't have to wait for bar to be full to do this.

    It allows you to use certain abilities that use-charge (either over-time or per-cast), either to cause you to deal more damage, or increase critical strike of certain abilities, or to regenerate your mana (out of combat). As a few examples.

    Such talents are soul-specific to my understanding.

    depending on the soul you're playing, it allows for certain skills to be used, like necro's purge.

    Think of it as a form of combo point system for mages. You use mana normally to feed spells. Spells give a set amount of charge (see their tooltips). At any time you can use spells that consume charge (they say in the tooltip) to do strong attacks similar to a rogue's finisher. When you are out of combat, the charge bar depletes slowly back to 0. This gives mages a strong potential for burst damage, as well as spells that don't use mana so they potentially last longer in combat before needing to recharge.

    some souls use charge for extra damage, some for mana regen, some for hp regen.

    basically its a mechanic that charges up as you cast spells(god does that sound lame to say though) that can be spent for extra effects.

    pyro has the most noticeable "spend it for uber effects" in its 51 point nuke fulminate, that takes an entire bar and has a tendency to cause "WTF" moments when it crits for 2.5-4k(depending on how many stars align)
