Idea for a new evocable

I think it'd be fun to have an evocable that grants the same effect as the Portal Projectile spell.

Duration based on Evo skill, cooldown timer similar to Phial /Lamp? Or if this item would be too OP, longer cooldown or just make the item extra rare to find? Or %-chance-to-be-consumed, like Box / Sack?

Idea hatched (heh heh) while playing a Tengu Berserker'O'Javelins. Would love to snipe enemies over my BiA summons. The game has a wide pool of devices that cover summons, hexes, conjurations. A translocations-themed device like this might make a fun addition.

IMO if you want Portal Projectile, you should have to cast Portal Projectile.

Yeah. Portal Projectile is only a lv3 spell, so even armored brutes can cast it. No need for an evocable. Too bad for 'zerkers, but that's the price of Trog.

New evokable: book of secrets. When evoked, casts a random spell. Higher evo skill gives higher level spells. Destroyed when used like box/sack.

True, but it had all kinds of bad effects and a limited spell set. I don't think I ever used it consistently.

If you want to make it able to cast any spells, it should be Xom's wrath IMHO. Casting Apportation or Death's Door is too fun :)

Good points, I probably didn’t help my proposal much by saying that my Berserker would like this feature. :-). Berserker does not need a buff.

Re: Idea for a new evocable

I can sympathize because allies blocking your LoF is super annoying, but that's calling out for a much more general fix than an evocable.

Re: Idea for a new evocable

How about an amulet that gives portal projectile as only advantage?
