When Beornings gather sufficient Wrath they can take the form of a great bear to unleash attacks on their foes.
Beornings are designed to be a dynamic skin-changer class. A Beorning can alternate back and forth between forms almost at will, dependent only upon their level of Wrath. Yes, they CAN change form during combat! A Beorning can always change from Bear back to Man Form at will, however changing into Bear Form is subject to a cooldown. A Beorning's basic skills emphasize the difference between Man and Bear Forms. There are skills available in three different ways -- those available in Man Form; those available in Bear Form; and those available in either form.
As a Beorning, you have a new vital named Wrath that replaces Power. Wrath builds up in combat through use of your skills. Many of your Man form skills will build wrath, allowing you to skin-change into a Bear. In Bear Form you unlock access to more potent, Wrath consuming skills.
Any skills requiring Wrath will list the cost in their tooltip. Bear form requires Wrath to use and maintain. Certain skills in either Man or Bear Form may also require Wrath. While in Bear form, Wrath will slowly increase over time. Wrath state is not maintained between logons so your character will always start with zero Wrath upon login.
The Beorning trait trees are designed to allow tailoring your play style to fit a tank, damage, or support role. Call on the ancestral knowledge of your people with The Roar trait line, strike down your enemies with The Claw trait line, or unleash your wrath to defend your allies with The Hide trait line.
These skills are granted automatically as you gain levels. The effects of many of these skills are improved in various ways by your choice of specialization and how you spend your trait points. Some skills may also be replaced by an improved version of the same skill as you increase in level.
