Levels

The amount of Mysticality required to attain level L follows the formula Mysticality = L2 - 2L+ 5.

Class-Specific Powers

  • Pasta Thralls: Pastamancers can summon a Pasta Thrall to them which provide additional effects during combat. Pasta Thralls can gain experience, and gain new effects at levels 5 and 10. Other classes can try to summon one, but will only receive 10 turns of a related effect instead of a Thrall.
  • +50% MP: Pastamancers (and Saucerors) have an innate 50% bonus to their maximum MP.
  • +5% Elemental Resistance: Pastamancers (and Saucerors) have an innate 5% resistance to elemental damage. This resistance applies only to damage, and will not pass tests that check for levels of elemental resistance (like Guano Junction).
  • MP from Pasta: Pastamancers gain MP when eating pasta dishes, based on the fullness of the dish. 3-7 MP is gained per fullness of the food, with the following message:
You draw power from the pasta. Delicious power.
MPYou gain X Mana Points.

Class Gear

Notes

  • Elements for pasta spells have equal probabilities, despite the fact that some elements have more hit messages than others.
  • Elemental pasta spells cast against elemental creatures will never be of that creature's element (e.g., hot damage will never occur against a hot creature, so you never do 1 damage), assuming you do not have equipment or an effect that forces spells to be of that element.
  • April 10, 2008 was Pastamancer Appreciation Day. Elemental spell names were changed: Minor Ray of Something to Ravioli Shurikens, eXtreme Ray of Something to Cannelloni Cannon and Cone of Whatever to Stuffed Mortar Shell. The damage caps for these spells were increased and Weapon of the Pastalord was modified.
  • Pastamancers (and Saucerors) received the last batch of revamps on November 14, 2013, due to events involving Peripatetic Pasta. The ability to summon Pasta Guardians was remade to Pasta Thralls, which are summoned with a non-combat skill instead of items and acts like a second familiar rather than a temporary summon. 8 of the previous Pasta Guardians returned as Thralls, with many of its abilities changed. Pastamancer combat spells were also tweaked, with Ravioli Shurikens now dealing damage 3 times, and Stuffed Mortar Shell now deals more damage, but with a 1-turn delay and is limited to one cast per combat. Also, Pastamastery now only require one cast per day. Besides Thrall binding, 7 other new skills were added. See Pastamancer/Old to see the skill list prior to the revamp.

  • The Pastamancer is the KoL equivalent of the Necromancer class from D&D, whose strength revolved around the summoning of undead minions.
  • The title for the second level is perplexing, since although they are indeed made from dough, most noodles do not contain yeast.
