Conceal Corruption - suggestion

I’ve been messing around in single player testlive, checking out the update. I have to say I love it, sure there are things that can be improved, but I love it.

Devs really managed to pull off something difficult with the sorcery system: a creeping feeling of unease, a sensation of… dirtiness lingering after each interaction with the sorcery system - really, I feel like having to shower each time lol, and this fits really well with what you’re actually doing there as a player, of course (perhaps the thrall system was intended to be this way as well, once upon a time, but it’s more like pokemon now).

However, I feel that it would be much more consistent with the theme to not have a simple “Conceal Corruption” toggle (that also requires only the cheapest of the reagent bags). It’s already about commitment in a way, when you can’t cleanse corruption after you modify/corrupt your attributes. Now, I’m not saying there shouldn’t be a conceal corruption spell, but make it more like a ritual than a spell. Have it on a timer + make it cost something significant (maybe tie it to one of the sorcery stations - with the player having to return there periodically). Have it so that it reminds players about the costs/consequences of what they are actually doing.

How about you funnel the outward visible energies of you corrupted appearance to radiate a corruption zone around you when it bleeds out, affecting followers, allies and enemies where your presence is now detected… The price of vanity is high.

That would be quite cool, to turn into a corrupting source yourself :smiley: I’m not sure how it would be possible from a technical standpoint though…
