Q u o t e: True. Though I don't see why you couldn't have some of those in the Talisman too? The only thing stopping it is the gems we established you insert. If you just leveled it up you could have them. Plus do you really need a whole seperate game mechanic just to get some extra effects when you use certain abilities?
I also think a seperate way you could get the passives is from the mystic, That would make it more of a gold sink though. They hinted at being able to enchant items from the mystic, maybe you can enchant yourself too?
i bet that is how the mystic is going to work, definetly gonna go him first i like making my weps shiny above all else.
how shall i kill you...will i devour your body whole with locusts? burn you alive with skull of flame? or will i just harvest your soul...
