Note: Before Occultism was announced by Trion as the official English name of this skill set, it was referred to as Death or Necromancy by the ArcheAge community.

Overview[edit | edit source]


If the hero chooses this path, he or she will be subject to all the mysteries of the underworld.
Patroness of such charmers is considered goddess Nui.

A hybrid tree, Occultism sacrifices some damage for crowd control. Unlike Sorcery, which is mostly damage, Occultism offers a variety of effects that occur instead of, or in addition to, its damaging effects. These include a lifesteal, an accuracy debuff, a snare, a pushback, and others. Occultism's passives all benefit magic damage, making it most useful when complementing other magic-based skillsets.
