Description

Rolls in same order from a list of Hocus-pocus only skills at first, such as Class Change being the second roll. The skills level affects the individual chance of a roll to succeed for the Hocus-pocus only skills. If all these rolls fail, a random skill except for Hocus-pocus only skills will be picked with minor exceptions such as Alchemist Skills, Quest skills or Ensemble Songs.

Each cast consumes 2 Yellow Gemstones regardless of skill level. If the caster is equipped with the Mistress Card or is benefiting from the Power Cord skill, Hocus-pocus will still require 1 Yellow Gemstone.
