  • All Stone spells deal fire-based magick damage scaling off the caster's total Magick, plus additional physical damage scaling off only the caster's weapon Strength.
  • After a 6 seconds long incantation, the Mystic Knight thrusts the sword into the ground and deals heavy damage in a few metres' radius surrounding them. Can lift enemies off the ground, knocking them down, and may also inflict Burning.
    • The skills have 1.5 second long detonation phase during which the caster is vulnerable to enemy attacks.
  • Pillars of fire appear in circular manner around Arisen, eight per circle. There is 1s delay between first 4 pillars formed closer to the center and next four in outer part.
  • This ability is especially useful against slow-moving and knocked down large enemies.

    Pillars area of effect showed as filled circles. Higher tier spells include all pillars from previous tiers.

  • Smaller, fast-moving enemies can be a challenge to hit due to the delay during casting, but it can kill them outright; thus this ability requires caution and planning to use properly.
  • If timed well it is useful to down swooping dragons.
  • Pillars of fire are high enough to knock down levitating Wyverns.
  • Equipping the augment Articulacy and using the Wyrmking's Ring will speed up this spell's casting time.
  • Similar in appearance and pillars power to the Sorcerer spell High Seism, though High Seism is a holy-based spell and Stone Forest is fire-based. The Seism-based spells take much longer to cast.
