===Diviner===
Description: Diviners are specialist mages who have mastered the arts of unconvering secrets, and obtaining knowledge. The entire world is an open book for them, just waiting for the pages to be turned. So adept do these mages become at divination that they gain all known divination spells, including some which are even secrets to the other mages!

The Diviner's love of knowledge means he loses the knack of casting spells of illusion. However, they make up for this by being the most popular of advisors and group members when strange and amazing treasures are uncovered, or some secret needs to be told.

How to Play=

The diviner is a high utility class, however, combatively it plays similar to any other mage.

Combat: In combat the diviner functions similarly to any other mage. You will want to pick up web, ensnare, hold and so on quickly to keep enemies at a distance. Arm's length is a useful divination to keep that distance static, though you are likely to run out of movement quickly while retreating. Get fireball or other fire related spells earlier to hit trolls, and use similar evocation magic to do damage. Know pain is powerful, but will require a few investments in power divining before it is probably powerful. Also, it is touch range, meaning you will need to be close.

Utility: On the utility side however, diviner has it all. You can identify almost any attribute of an item or mob/player. Everything from know origin, to identify object, to locate, spying stone, distant vision and more gives a great deal of world information. You will not, however, have a locate person spell, which is a bit unfortunate. Future death is predictably powerful, but that is to be expected. While the utility of diviner is without dispute, some of it is of limited use. Know origin is interesting, but rarely gives any kind of edge. Knowing what area something is from is feasibly interesting, but rarely. In a well documented coffeemud, you will find the use of diviner to be surprisingly limited, though still necessary in a clan setting.
