    Yes it does sound like it's connected to an Aura Effect in altering things around him.

    Having a Smithing Skill, or a Crafting Skill, or an Art Skill, or Music, ect might have opened up more Specialization Options, as would have Knowing more Magic types and things like Rune Knowledge/Crafting and Kyatchi Bonding, ect.

    Will be interesting if when he gains new Professions and Specializations if he will also get an Option to also get a Specialization Sub-Upgrade of some type of they Sync in someway?

    Could be the same argument now that I think on it. It could be available due to his having spirit magic (who's first spell at least for Richter was weak Aura lance) and his chaos might have determined the flavor of the specialty

    Could it just be that he isn't considered Celestial yet? Look at the other options. The mental one...he has initiated mental combat so that's why it was an option. He has done the Meseji more than once so that's why that's was an option. He is the master of the mist village a place of power...check. Finally he is a chaos seed...check. A celestial has more attributes per level. Now that Richter is a chaos lord he does but that is separate. Richter has started down the celestial path but has only eaten one fruit. So the potential has opened (which could be why it was shrouded) but not achieved yet.

    I dont think its a bad idea, but im pretty convinced that one was due to him being a chaos seed as well.

    1. It looks like all the chaos seeds have a chaotic aura that will affect the world around them. This specialty just builds off of that and makes it so things go more in their favor.

    2. The specialty person hinted that it hadnt been offered in the land for a long time if ever. I would think in all of the land there are at least a couple enchanters who learned spirit magic.

    When the Quickening grew it was mentioned that it had been a really long time. Seems the Quickening is the only way we know of as of now for a mortal to become Celestial. That would seem to fit what you are saying.

    This warrants a new thread I think.

    I didn't mean it like that. I meant that it allows for a specialty based on what kind of aura/ spirit you have. Kind of like a personalized specialty, and since Richter is a chaos seed and his aura is a chaotic aura, his specialty became the Ambient enchanter. An Orderly being with spirit magic might have a way of keeping things from changing, like preventing people from casting spells in their presence, or some such

    Thanks for clarifying. I like this theory a lot. Adds a whole new layer to it

    "Consuming the fruit of the Quickening is the first step in evolving your own nature. In all the realities and dimensions of The Land, a celestial chaos seed would be a formidable monster…" bk7

    How about a celestial chaos Lord? o_O would that be a formidable monster universe?

    Celestial DragonFolk Chaos Lord (who can shift between various stages between mostly Human and mostly DragonMan/Draconian, maybe even into a Small Celestial Chaos Mist Dragon?).

    Seems like a lot built in there. Is it saying a persons nature is a tangible thing seperate from physical tier and such, or is it saying:
    step one - eat fruit
    Step two - qualify for (reach threshold, attain over over 98% assimilation)and undergo celestial chaos seed/lord evolution(a tier 2 greater than ledgendary evolution)

    Be interesting to see what a Celestial Talent/Skill Upgrade might do to a them?

    The most anticlimactic would be just an additional multiplier to the benefits skill levels already grant. If it wasn't for the rule of cool that would be my guess, but based on what we have seen so far I am sure AK will make some other cool OP bonus.

    I would guess the latter. He has the spark and might "one day become a celestial", but after all the hoops have been jumped through. Unless it is not a tier evolution and more of a sideways thing, like Elora did with her bonding.

    I vote slideways, with the opportunity for an interesting tier ascension option when tier 3 or tier 4 comes around.

    Do you mean celestial talent enhancements?

    Sideways evolution. The same way Richter is a chaotic human, he would become a celestial as well. Unlike tier evolution, those changes are likely to be passed down to offspring.

    Celestial chaos seeds are sure to be powerful, but they likely have great weaknesses to go with them.

    Huge weakness to order and abyssal attacks.

    At least its an odd pairing. Abyssal/ creatures from the lower planes of existence (from what little we've seen, along with dark court extrapolations) seem like they'd tend more towards chaotic tendencies, while Higher planed creatures would tend more towards order. So at least it's less likely for Richter to walk up against an Abyssal Lord of Order.
