Illusion Book.png

The Book of Illusion is a book that excels at evading opponents and threats thrown its way and has the unique ability to Duplicate an opponent for a minion slot to acquire their full spellbook. Additionally, it enables the player to use spells that enable movement through terrain. This was the first community made book that was conceptualized largely by The boi they call ya boi#3793 in the Discord Server, who created the spell assets and the abilities. The book was added into the game through the May 26, 2020 patch.

Illusion Book.png The Illusion familiar is Allusion. As with other familiars, you use it by paying 20 health points per level, which you can do up to 5 times. Every time you power the familiar, your Arcanist grows smaller in size, gives +20HP to one of the lowest minions or allies on your team, and adds a social distancing effect to whisper bomb that allows the spell to do more damage when it is thrown more distance horizontally.

Familiar specific changes:

  • Level 3: Gain the spell Blink.
  • Level 5: Duplicates have no expiration and spawn with 75% of the target's health. Vertex is buffed.
