Cabalists are masters of life and death. In addition to keeping people alive with powerful methods of healing, Cabalists can enter a deep trance to enhance their healing abilities, and walk the plane of undeath to use deadly words of power to smite their enemies.
Trance is a stance Cabalist can use to supercharge their healing actions. When the Cabalist Trances, they attune themselves to the power of Essence greatly improving the power of their healing spells. However, this comes at the cost of offensive power by reducing the effect of their Wrath actions.
Deathwalk allows the Cabalist to slip into a state of undeath. While in this state the Cabalist becomes very durable and difficult for opponents to affect. Additionally their power with Wrath based actions is increased. Walking the plane of undeath comes at a price, as the Cabalist's effectiveness with healing actions is greatly reduced.
Words of Power are a variety of actions with lasting effects. These Words can be anything from reinforcing buffs that the Cabalist places on allies to crippling curses use to devastate foes. Although many Words can be used freely, some Words will prevent the Cabalist from using other Word actions for a time due to their significant drain placed on the speaker.
Touches of Power are a variety of actions with short term effects. These Touches can instantly infuse an ally with health or deliver retribution on an enemy. Touches usually only affect the immediate target of the Cabalist, but always have significant impact.
