Way of Dark
Earth's Legacy - Increase speed 20%. Increase regular attack damage by 1/2 a heart. Increase stamina by 30%.
By far the best passive stat increase in GCM2, Earth's Legacy means an end to the feeble mild-mannered mage you once were. This ability pairs well with anything, so choose your secondary ability by selecting what your opponent is weak to. Take mobility when facing warrior-types, or a projectile when facing thieves. Either way, you'll be giving them a real test of their core battle skills.
