Astrologian Spell Changes in Patch 6.0

In Endwalker, Astrologian receives a slight rework to the card system. Divination is no longer attached to seals, the effects of Minor Arcana has also been changed, and they receive a new buff for themselves to use seals on. Earthly Star's range has also been greatly increased. Its capstone action is a spell that will heal the party of a percentage of all damage taken for a duration after it is activated, allowing the Astrologian to bring the party back from the brink of death.
