Pre-creation will start from November 2nd and you can meet Sage on November 9th, 2021.
Sealing himself away to thwart the impending destruction, Sage re-opened his eyes only to learn that the ancient kingdom that he belonged to was long gone. But why has Sage arisen now?
This was what he concluded the moment he witnessed it.
On a night where bleak darkness devoured every trace of starlight, a mysterious red star, never-before-seen, glimmered alone within the constellation of the Sealing Stone in the northern region of the sky.
“We must all unite to prepare for the coming calamity. Otherwise, all that awaits us is annihilation!”
Nicknamed the “Oddball of the Ivory Tower” for his eccentric ideas, he appeared before the masses for the first time. In a blink of an eye, a crowd formed before him as he revealed the existence of the invaders he had long studied and tracked.
“I’ve seen with my own eyes the comet that orbits the North Star. A comet bearing blood-eyed, dark beings that promise destruction.
That’s right. The fell invaders foretold in the Revelations of Margahan are coming. Three days is all they will need to reduce this glorious kingdom into nothing more than ash!”
But even the appearance of a mysterious comet was not enough to evoke fear in the people blessed by the bountiful Agris River.
They had been lulled into the illusion of eternal abundance by the bountiful grain that lined every warehouse and the aroma of wine that accompanied every meal, despite knowing that eternal life and endless bounty did not exist in this world. They had lost themselves in their daily, honeyed prosperity.
“Hear me! That which none have laid eyes on before is coming. Pay heed to what my creation – made with my very own hands – has allowed me to witness! Believe what my astronomical telescope, Atorarkiaka, has revealed!”
But before he could continue his speech, he was imprisoned for dissent. Confined to the very prison he had designed, which none had ever escaped, he set aside his sorrow for the kingdom set on the path of ruin. Then, on a night when only a sliver of moonlight shone through the bars, he vanished without a trace; except for a letter contained in a small cube he left behind.
When the comet descends and the invaders bring ruin to this world…
When the temples collapse and the Ivory Tower burns, and your tears of regret wash over the split earth…
I will come to save you all.”
And so, after exactly 49 years, the comet — with its invaders in tow-fell upon the world. The temples collapsed, the Ivory Tower burned, and the earth split open. As the people shed tears of regret, they looked for his return. And yet, he did not come to save them.
But for some reason, unknown to all, Sage did not wake up at the end times. He opened his eyes to a very different era. He found himself in the middle of the 270’s of the Elionian Calendar, farther in the timeline than he had expected.
Sage, an ancient man who woke up in an unfamiliar era. This is how his adventure begins.
Sage Combat Style
Sage wields the Kyve, made of a special substance he developed, and the magic-filled Talisman. He uses Kyve’s special ability to freely change its form to distort time and space, bringing forth powerful physical forces.
Sage can inflict damage with powerful attacks from afar and interrupt foes who try to catch him off guard. Also, he can quickly re-position himself in the thick of battle and turn the odds to his favor. His versatility enables Sage to carry out multiple roles depending on what the situation calls for. Bear witness to Sage as he flips the hourglass of fate in his long-awaited return to this world.
Sage Main Skills
Spatial Collapse: Among Sage’s core skills, Spatial Collapse opens up another dimension to the sky inflicting great damage in a wide area using the power generated by the collision of two dimensions. Although the casting time is long, after the casting is completed, this skill can inflict devastating damage at the desired timing. The cons of the long skill casting time can be compensated with a second skill.
Rift Chain: This skill uses the main weapon Kyve to open the dimensional door through which Sage enters and then reappears after staying in another dimension for a certain period of time. For instance, if you use Rift Chain while casting Spatial Collapse, it will not stop casting but Sage to another dimension to not get attacked. Later, he reappears, allowing a combo play that immediately uses Spatial Collapse. This combo play compensates for the disadvantages of long-casting skills and can create various fighting situations.
Judgment of Ator: The third skill we will introduce is Judgement of Ator. You probably know of Ator by now, the giant being that is not active but is standing still in the Great Desert. Sage can punish the enemy by bringing the suspended power of the ancient Ator, beyond space-time, to the present by using the Kyve. This ancient power remains for a few seconds at the place where the skill is cast, dealing continuous damage to enemies. The effect of the hit by the giant Ator’s fists is a very impressive one.
