Gods of Diablo 2 Fallen: Esu - The First Sorceress

Recommended Posts

For more detailed info on Esu and her Divine Gift Charged Bolt, check her SacredWiki page.

 

Lore of the Nephalem

Book 2: Esu - The First Sorceress

CDPKlFq.png

Esu is one of the Nephalem, and a master of elemental magic. She is the forerunner of the reclusive Zann Esu all-female mage clan. It is unknown if she is alive or dead.

 

Traits

Athletic, affable, and self-assured, Esu was hardly like the mages of today, scholarly bookworms hidden away from civilization. She possessed many of the same magical skills as the male Nephalem, but excelled beyond all others at the use of elemental magic. The First Sorceress acted based on motives and ethics inscrutable to most, and sometimes seemed capricious and even spiteful. In reality, she understood the struggle between Order and Chaos all too clearly, as well as her role as a warrior in this battle.

 

Like most mages, she considered melee combat vulgar and used magic almost exclusively to fight her enemies. Not much else is known about her, but perhaps unsurprisingly she and the Barbarian Bul-Kathos did not get along.

Legacy

The female mage clan of Zann Esu is one of the oldest of the ancient clans, although little is actually known about them. Centuries ago, the fourteen powerful covens of Esu witches convened for the first time in generations. What they discussed is not known, but the witches left behind their former lives and, as a group, disappeared into the Eastern Jungles.

 

The exact location of their community is a mystery. Until recently, their only contact with the outside world occurred during the recruitment missions. Once every seven years, the Zann Esu visited certain families across Ancaria. These families had one thing in common -- they each had a seven-year old daugther. Always good-natured and polite, the Zann Esu visitors would meet the girls, ask a few questions, and then leave. A select few of the girls were visited a second time and offered apprenticeships. The families of those chosen enjoyed good fortune for many years after.

 

The Zann Esu, or Sorceresses as they are generally known, are on a quest for purity, the pursuit of the perfect magic. They feel the other disciplines of magic are haphazard, and have instead chosen to focus strictly upon elemental magic. They mold the base elements into whatever magical forms they need -- threatening all other magic disciplines with obsolescence. In order to achieve perfection in these elemental transmutations, they choose only those daughters of Ancaria with the highest level of attunement to the magical elements.

 

The Sorceresses believe that it is through the search for perfection that they will attain ultimate purity and ascend to their destined role as the most powerful mages in Ancaria. For centuries they have studied in secret, perfecting their art and bidding their time until the Emergence of Evil. Then, they will face their greatest challenge, either proving the purity of their magic or fading from existence.

 

===================================

Divine Gift: Charged Bolt

TVO6JDj.png

Esu's teachings allow the hero to supercharge ions in the surrounding air, resulting in bursts of electrical energy discharge. These missiles heal allies but chase down opponents and shock them to the core.

  • Magic Damage: 160 + 90 per level
  • Heal Allies: 10% + 2% per level
  • Duration: 12 s
  • Cooldown: 400 s (~6.6 minutes)

 

Charged Bolt is based on the old god spell "Will o' Wisp," with new SFX. The bolts fire continuously for 12 seconds and seek their targets.

A little nitpick on the Divine Gift description:

"These missiles heal allies but chase down opponents and shock them to the core" sounds a bit off.

Something like "These missiles not only heal allies but also chase down opponents and shock them to the core" I think flow better.

Flix, the writing for this content is just first class... The first line for traits, fired up my imagination, got me smiling.

Great Canon for the fans sir!
