|Lamannia Enhancements Preview (more news)|
| The long awaited enhancement changes are also available with the expansion.
(This portion of the update is available for everyone for free.)
This page lists future enhancements coming to the game. Feel free to contribute by adding your own finds.
Enhancement Pass 2013
- The first alpha version of the enhancement changes was put on Lamannia on April, 11th, 2013. The corresponding release notes can be found here.
- Another iteration of enhancement tests started on June 27, 2013. Lamannia Release Notes
See the currently available racial and class trees here: Enhancement Alpha.
Design changes in June
- You now have access to 6 Class trees and 1 Racial for a total of 7 trees
- The first Core Enhancement is Required to take the first Enhancement of that Tree
- Improved Enhancement UI. Core Enhancements are now called out more clearly, and a white box highlights them when they can be taken (like non-Core enhancements have already done)
- You can now re-arrange your enhancement trees by clicking on the drop-down box near the bottom of the trees. The “TBD – DNT – Unset” panel is available so you can select the order you prefer.
- You can only take tier 5 abilities in one class tree
The new enhancement system works like this. See also changes below.
CHANGES (Week 2)
- We are lowering the number of Action Points spent in the Trees required to access the Top Tier Enhancements. (Class Enhancement Trees will require 0, 5, 10, 20, and 30 Action Points spent and Racial Enhancement Trees will require 0, 5, 10, and 15 Action Points spent.) Note that while this change would allow you to take Tier 5 abilities from two Class Trees, that is not intended. We will eventually add the "You can only take Tier 5 Enhancements from a single Tree" restriction. 
- Tier 5 class abilities require 5 class levels, but they also require 12 character levels. 
Lamannia Leaks October 2012
- Prodigal Lyrist - DNT TBD Your music ripples with latent energy. Granted Abilities: +2 Charisma, +1 to your Spell DCs, +1 to your Spell Penetration checks, and 100 Spell Points. In addition, you are able to cast your spells 20% faster. Bard Spell List: Gain Wall of Sound as a 6th Level spell.

Oozes are particularly susceptible to the pitch of the sound, and take an additional 2 to 8 Sonic damage. In addition, enemies caught in the Wall of Sound may begin dancing on a failed Will save, and become slowed thereafter on a failed Fortitude save.
- Sweeping Strikes - Melee Quarterstaff Trip Attack: Deals +1[W] damage to all nearby enemies and trips them (Balance DC 10 + Half Rogue Level + Dexterity Modifier Negates trip)

Divine Avenger details
(available with the enhancements revamp)
Favored Soul Divine Avenger I (Sovereign Host) Prereqs: Level 6 Favored Soul, Favored by the Sovereign Host, Favored Soul Attack Boost II, Favored Soul Charisma I, and any of the following: Power Attack or Two Weapon Fighting. Cost: 4 AP Benefit: Everything the gods need to say to your enemies can be said with your weapon. When wielding a longsword in your right hand you are treated as if you have a fighter’s base attack bonus. You also gain the ability to swear an oath of enmity against a foe, vowing to destroy them in the name of your deity.
- Oath of Enmity
- Benefit: You mark an opponent as your chosen foe with a righteous smite. This attack gains twice your Charisma modifier to your attack roll and a damage bonus based on your Favored Soul level. Whether or not the attack hits, for the next five minutes, each time you critically hit your chosen enemy <SOMETHING AWESOME HAPPENS - oath mechanics are still very much in development, and this is just a hint> for a short period of time. (This bonus stacks up to ten times.) Your Oath of Enmity recharges after five minutes, or upon the death of your chosen foe.
Repeat for other deities, replacing "favored by" as appropriate.
Lord of Blades accepts any of the following: Improved Fortification, Power Attack, or Two Handed Fighting.
Silver Flame accepts any of the following: Point Blank Shot, Weapon Focus: Ranged, or Zen Archery, and instead of a melee smite as their Oath, gets a ranged attack, and their Oath mechanic was a little bit different (and wasn't working properly at all).
