Astrologer Skills Explained
Much like every other Sinner, the Astrologer has several skills with various effects. Here’s a rundown of all of Astrologer’s skills and attacks.
Basic Attack: Astrological
For the basic attack, the Astrologer attacks in one square through her magic weapon. Each basic attack deals 71% of her total magic damage. Her range extends 3 rows: 3 squares in front of her and 4 squares in the two rows above her.
The Astrologer has much higher magic damage than other Sinners. Hence, the 71% inheritance that her Basic Attack gets is more or less justified. She also deals AoE damage, so you hit more enemies in one go.

Ultimate Skill: Victory Star
Astrologer’s Ultimate Skill is called “Victory Start”. When using this, she summons a Victory Star on the field in the target square. The Victory Star will inherit 100% of the Astrologer’s attack and 30% of her max HP.
The Victory Star also has 130% of its own magic damage that it will deal to the 9-square grid surrounding itself at timed intervals. The Astrologer can only summon a maximum of 2 Victory Stars. More Victory Stars can only appear when the previous ones are destroyed.
By spending DisCoins and using the Skill Up option, you can upgrade this skill further.

Star Guidance is an upgrade to the existing Victory Star ultimate skill. This ability allows the damage of the Victory Star to be increased by 4% when damage is dealt to the same enemy in a short interval. The effect is stackable and can be stacked a maximum of 5 times. Hence, the damage of Victory Star can increase by a maximum of 20%.
This major buff is perfect for an Arcane AoE damage dealer like Astrologer. The stackable effect allows you to target one enemy and deal massive amounts of damage to them. You can unlock this buff by promoting the Astrologer to the 1st Phase.

Realm is another skill upgrade to Victory Star. With this skill, whenever Victory Star gets destroyed or disappears, it deals 200% of its magic attack to every enemy in the 9-star grid.
This upgrade requires you to reach Phase 2 of Astrologer. But when you do acquire it, it totally flips the course of the game. It ensures that even when your Victory Star gets destroyed, it will go out with a literal blast.

Crimebrand: Land of Dreams
Once you get to Phase 3 of upgrading the Astrologer, you get to unlock crimebrands. Not only can you use the generic crimebrands, but you also get an Astrologer-exclusive crimebrand.
Astrologer’s crimebrand is called “Land of Dreams”. This crimebrand guides all the Victory Stars currently present on the field. It deals an additional 60% magic damage to the Stars as well as Astrologer herself within the 9-square grid. The damage occurs at regular intervals after every second.
You can upgrade this crimebrand to increase the damage to 70% and 80%. This skill lasts for 8 seconds and can only be used once. If Land of Dreams is active, using any other skills or performing any other action will interrupt the crimebrand.
Astrologer also has a unique Characteristic. With this Characteristic, the damage of all summoned objects gets increased by 10%. This is a major buff considering that she is highly dependent on her Victory Stars. Hence, the 10% buff will help you clear the field faster.
You also get a Leader Skill with Astrologer. Through this skill, you can inflict damage to the Real Realm two times in the 9-square range. You can only cast this skill on one Victory Star and cannot summon any new Stars while the skill is active.
Throughout upgrading Astrologer, you can also unlock and use certain Shackles to boost her performance. Here are the 5 shackles available for Astrologer:
Shackle Sync I
With Shackle Sync I active, the damage of all minions will increase by 8%. This is one of the most basic Shackles but it’s also the most effective. by increasing the damage of all minions, you’ll be wiping out the enemy Sinners faster.
The next shackle that you can unlock is Still Honorable. When active, this Shackle provides a 20% damage increase to any Victory Star on the field. The only condition is that the Victory Star must have been on the field for 10 seconds or more.
Shackles Sync II
After that, you can unlock Shackles Sync II. This Shackle further increases the damage output of the minions by 8%. It stacks upon the already 8% damage boost that you got through Shackle Sync I
False Speech is the 4th Shackle that you can unlock for the Astrologer. This Shackle affects the Victory Stars. It adds a special ability to your Victory Stars that, when they disappear, you receive 5 energy.
Shackles Sync III
Finally, the last Shackle that you can unlock for the Astrologer is Shackles Sync III. Much like the previous Shackle Syncs, this Shackle also grants you 8% extra damage for all minions. Combined with Shackle Syn I and II, it translates to a total damage increase of 24%.
