"The only thing stronger than my faith is the fire I use to burn away those who stand against the will of the gods." -Ehmeht El
Source: Divine. Invokers practice an ancient form of divine magic, wielding the power that the gods themselves used in the Dawn War against the primordials.
Role: Controller. Invokers call on the power of the gods to blast their foes from a distance, leave them unable to defend themselves, and scatter them to the four winds.
Implement: Rods, staffs.
At the dawn of time, the gods who inhabited the Astral Sea warred with the primordials of the Elemental Chaos, the mighty beings who shaped the world out of formless void. The greatest of the gods’ mortal agents in that war were invokers, imbued with a fragment of the gods’ own might to fight alongside them. No other mortal servant of the gods can claim the same kind of power. Through rites of investiture, avengers, clerics, and paladins gain the ability to manifest echoes of that power, uttering careful prayers and channeling divine energy through their holy symbols. The invoker, however, channels the gods' power directly. No mere symbol can contain it, for they speak the words of creation, shaping the universe to their gods' and their own will.
Some are trained in secret monasteries, or studied in libraries where the oldest lore was preserved. Some experience the presence of their gods firsthand and take a shard of divine power into themselves. Some few are immortals born into flesh, slowly awakening to the awesome divine power that is their birthright. Whatever their past, the invokers are among the gods’ most trusted servants, bound to a covenant in which they swore to use divine power with great care.
