Hello, friends. Well, my chronic restartitis has already flared up, and now I'm trying a new Astral Lord sw.
I've started with Astral Focus as skill one, Astral Lore as skill two, and will take Concentration for skill three. I know I will take Death Warrior Focus for the Grim Resilience boost.
My question is whether I should take Ancient Magic sooner or later? I plan to make extensive use of Spectral Hand, Skeletal Fortifications, and Nether Allegience with this toon. The skill says it boosts "non-weapon based" Combat Arts, as well as reducing enemy resistances. But, Spectral Hand appears to be totally weapon based. So, would Ancient Magic help make Spectral Hand any stronger?
Exactly why is Ancient Magic available to a sw, and what does it do for his astral lord aspect combat arts?
