Moonlight Online Walkabout Diary Entry 2 – Vampire Elementalist

"What foolish mortal has stirred me from my undead slumber?" With this opening line, Moonlight Online ( http://mo.igg.com/) fans would probably have guessed the spotlight for today's Walkabout is on the most popular race - the Vampire. I chose a female Vampire Elementalist for my character in this entry. Elementalists are adept in long-range spell-casting and have excellent control over the use of magic. However, this edge in sorcery also means a trade-off in the physical damage they deal and their resistance to physical attacks. Melee combat is the Achilles' Heel of Elementalists.

All vampires begin their journeys from Dusklight Graveyard, where the sun never seems to shine its rays upon. But it doesn't feel eerie at all. In fact the darkness is pretty reassuring and comforting. The NPC Wilma Atruz is waiting nearby to provide me with an insight into the vast history of vampires.

After bidding farewell to Wilma and armed with a Soul Orb from the Graveyard Elder, I made my way to the outskirts of the graveyard. I spotted a gang of vile Ashir's Zealots lurking around and terrorizing passersby. The peace of Dusklight Graveyard mustn't be disrupted! The Soul Orb in my hands rose and amassed a ball of powerful elemental energy… "Searing Flamebolt!" As I muttered a chant, a massive ball of fire was hurled towards those cursed Ashir's Zealots.

One shot kill! The Ashir Zealot was downed immediately by my Searing Flamebolt.

His death alerted other Ashir's Zealots. My MP is drained from the previous spell, and won't be able to withstand the sudden onslaught of several enemies, so with Glacial Spike, I sealed myself within an icy stalagmite and kept myself safe from their attacks for some time. 

When the stalagmite melted, I emerged with the ultimate spell, Phoenix Nirvana. This potent wave of elemental force wiped out the entire mob! Peace and quiet returns to Dusklight Graveyard once more.
