Sorry if this is the wrong section, it looks like the NG forums are not up yet. I am currently trying to figure out how to use the Talis in NG. I kind of understand the rings around my player and how to augment spells. But I can't figure out how to deploy my talis and remotely cast spells. This is what I have figured out:
Normal Attack: Just shoots a ranged attack.. Nothing fancy
Convergence Shot: Creates a ring around my player with 3 cards facing forward. This modifies all of my elemental spells to shoot long distance/single target
Spread Shot: Has two phases. If you hit spread shot and wait, it will create three cards in front of you for a second (phase 1), then immediately change into a full ring of cards surrounding you.
Phase 1: If you interrupt Spread shot before it gets to phase 2 it creates a ring around my player with 3 cards spread out in front of me. This modifies all of my elemental spells to shoot long distance, but in 3 separate paths ahead. Good for hitting multiple creatures at range, or easier to hit weakpoints?
Phase 2: If you let Spread Shot fully deploy, it ends with cards fully surrounding you. This modifies all spells to blast a short range AoE around your person. Good for being in the middle of a lot of mobs and hitting everything close range?
Weapon Action: If pressed, creates a card in the sky that shoots nearby enemies constantly from that location, regardless of where you move to afterwards. If held, creates 3 cards in the sky that also shoots the enemy, but also cancels any ongoing talis augment? But no matter what I do, I can't figure out how to deploy my talis somewhere, and shoot spells out of it? It just kind of auto shoots the normal weapon attack?
