From GuildWiki

Sacrifice skills are skills that decrease the health of the caster, ranging from 5% to 33% of the caster's maximum health depending on the skill. Health is only sacrificed if the skill is performed successfully. Cancellation or interruption of the skill will not trigger the sacrifice effect. Only Necromancers and Ritualists have skills that require sacrifice.

  • Because sacrifices are based on the caster's maximum health and not current health, it is possible for a caster to kill himself by sacrificing more than his remaining health.
  • The math for sacrificing health rounds the health loss. This means that a caster with a maximum of 1 health will not actually sacrifice any health (since 33% of 1 health rounds down to zero life lost). One way this could happen is by dying as an Invincimonk and being resurrected with 100% health, through a Resurrection Signet or Shrine.

Note: Sacrifice is not counted as damage by the game mechanics. Therefore, damage mitigation skills such as Protective Spirit/Bond, Reversal of Fortune, Shielding Hands, Dark Bond, Shelter, etc. will have no effect on the sacrifice.

Related Skills

These skills sacrifice health (sacrificed amount is shown in parentheses):

A detailed list of these skills can be found at Sacrifice skills quick reference.

Offering of Spirit 17% (if not near a spirit)

Generous Was Tsungrai (10%)

Spirit Light 17% (if not near a spirit)

These skills involve sacrifice in other ways:

  • Monk Scourge Sacrifice when target foe and adjacent foes sacrifice life, they sacrifice twice the normal amount.
  • Necromancer Awaken the Blood sacrifice 50% more than the normal amount.
  • Necromancer Dark Aura deals damage to foes near target ally and removes health from its caster whenever target ally sacrifices.
  • Necromancer Masochism (PvP) gives you energy whenever you sacrifice Health.
  • Necromancer Masochism causes you to sacrifice Health on every spell cast.

Notes

  • Blood is Power (33%/sec) is the fastest way to sacrifice health, the next non-elite fastest way to sacrifice health is through Order of Pain (6.18%/sec) followed by Blood Ritual (4.25%/sec). Using Blood of the Master with many Minion Masters on your team could potentially sacrifice more than 100% of your health.

Sacrifice is the fifth novel in the Legacy of the Force series. It is a hardcover by Karen Traviss. Jacen Solo received his 'official' Sith name in this book, after the name had been chosen from the Darth Who Contest. According to Sue Rostoni, Sacrifice begins "a day or two after Exile ends and covers 30 to 40 days." The audio version was narrated by Marc Thompson.

Released on May 29, 2007, the book is 367 pages long. The front cover features a youthful-looking Mara Jade Skywalker, while the back cover displays an older Luke Skywalker. The image of Mara, who at the time of Sacrifice would be 58 years old, has proved controversial among fans who believe that it depicts her inaccurately, although some authors depict Mara as "eternally youthful." The paperback edition includes Boba Fett: A Practical Man. The paperback version was put into mass production on April 29, 2008.

Editions

Hardcover

Back cover

To bring peace and order to a galaxy at war, Jacen Solo will sacrifice anything—or anyone. Now the moment of choice is at hand.

Internal flap

Civil War rages as the Galactic Alliance—led by Cal Omas and the Jedi forces of Luke Skywalker—battles a confederation of breakaway planets that rally to the side of rebellious Corellia. Suspected of involvement in an assassination plot against Queen Mother Tenel Ka of the Hapes Consortium, Han and Leia Solo are on the run, hunted by their own son, Jacen, whose increasingly authoritarian tactics as head of GA security have led Luke and Mara Skywalker to fear that their nephew may be treading perilously close to the dark side. But all Jacen wants is safety and stability for all—and he's prepared to do whatever it takes to achieve that goal.

But as his family sees in Jacen the chilling legacy of his Sith grandfather, Darth Vader, many of the frontline troops adore him, and countless citizens see him as a savior. The galaxy has been torn apart by too many wars. All Jacen wants is safety and stability for all–and he’s prepared to do whatever it takes to achieve that goal.

To end the bloodshed and suffering, what sacrifice would be too great? That is the question tormenting Jacen. Already he has sacrificed much, embracing the pitiless teachings of Lumiya, the Dark Lady of the Sith, who has taught him that a strong will and noble purpose can hold the evil excesses of the dark side at bay, bringing peace and order to the galaxy–but at a price.

For there is one final test that Jacen must pass before he can gain the awesome power of a true Sith Lord: He must bring about the death of someone he values dearly. What troubles Jacen isn’t whether he has the strength to commit murder. He has steeled himself for that, and worse if necessary. No, the question that troubles Jacen is who the sacrifice should be.

As the strands of destiny draw ever more tightly together in a galaxy-spanning web, the shocking conclusion will shatter two families... and cast a grim shadow over the future.

Paperback

To bring peace and order to a galaxy at war, Jacen Solo will sacrifice anything-or anyone. Now the moment of choice is at hand.

Suspected of treason, Han and Leia Solo are on the run, hunted by none other than their own son, Jacen. But though his family sees in Jacen the chilling legacy of his Sith grandfather, Darth Vader, many of the frontline troops adore him, and countless citizens see him as a savior in a galaxy torn apart by too many wars. All Jacen wants is safety and stability for all-and he's prepared to do whatever it takes to achieve that goal... even if it means embracing the teachings of Lumiya, the Dark Lady of the Sith. But there is one final test that Jacen must pass before he can gain the awesome power of a true Sith Lord: He must bring about the death of someone he values dearly. What troubles Jacen isn't whether he has the strength to commit murder, but who the sacrifice should be.

Synopsis

On the Moon, Megatron and Thrust discuss the necessary tactics needed for the Decepticons to obtain the Requiem Blaster. Megatron agrees to give up the Star Saber for the time, but only on the condition that Thrust's plan is effective, or else Thrust will pay.

Has it occurred to them that if they want to hide, they might be slightly less visible in vehicle mode?

The Autobots hide in the jungle, due to an anonymous tip that the Decepticons are in the area. Smokescreen and Red Alert stay behind at the Autobot base, protecting the Space Team Mini-Cons, in case the Decepticons attack. Smokescreen tries to make friends with the Minis, while the kids debate the ethics of using the Mini-Cons in battle. At the same time, the Autobots in the jungle have a similar debate.

Laserbeak detects Starscream in the area. Armed with the Star Saber, Starscream screams and tries to draw out the Autobots with yelling. After Starscream begins to destroy the jungle, Optimus and Jetfire combine to fight back. Spying from a distance, Megatron and his goons wonder where the Requiem Blaster is. Tidal Wave and the Sea Mini-Con Team also fire into the forest to draw out the rest of the Autobots.

The kids and Red Alert find their equipment at the base is malfunctioning, courtesy of Sideways. Sideways also telepathically whispers images of the Requiem Blaster in the Autobot base to Thrust, but the tactician dismisses the message as a hallucination.

In the sky, Starscream strikes at Prime. With a flash of lightning, it suddenly starts to rain all over the forest. After the two warriors land, Optimus tries to reason with Starscream, but Starscream never listens and attacks the Autobot leader. Yet not a single slash connects. Eventually the Star Saber deactivates (possibly damaged from the rain), so Starscream calls for help from the other Decepticons. But to his dismay, Starscream finds all the other Decepticons have abandoned him, leaving Starscream on his own against the six Autobots. Before the six can beat down on the lone Decepticon, Laserbeak brings a message to the team that the Decepticons have invaded the base. The Autobots teleport home, leaving Starscream to cry in the rain.

The Autobots find their base trashed, with the kids in hiding. With help from Sideways, the Decepticons were able to invade the base and bypass the security systems that stopped them before. In another section of the base, Smokescreen tries to protect the Mini-Cons. Megatron blows into the room and tears past Smokescreen, claiming the three Mini-Cons and combining them into the Requiem Blaster. Smokescreen refuses to stay down and takes on Megatron by himself, but Megatron fires his blaster right at Smokescreen.

If you squint really really hard, you can see that he's giving Megatron the finger.

A torrent of energy pours from the blaster, shoving Smokescreen right through one of the Autobots' walls, his scream stunning the Autobots and humans. Even after such heavy abuse, Smokescreen rises again, a wide hole straight through his own torso, and his pieces all banged out of shape. The Autobot approaches Megatron while the air around him still ripples in the heat of the last blast. The determination of the melting Autobot scares the Decepticons into retreating with their prize.

In Optimus's arms, Smokescreen deactivates. The Autobots salute their fallen comrade, and Optimus screams in sadness.

Quotes

Demolishor: I'm not talking to you, Eraserhead, I'm talking to Megatron. So butt out, will ya?

—Not the last time someone will mock Thrust's head.


Starscream: Here I come, Autobots! You're all mine! So come out from your hiding places, you cowards, and face the most powerful Decepticon in the universe!
Jetfire: Boy, sure doesn't have a self-image problem, does he?

—Jetfire calling the kettle black.


Sideways: There shall never be peace in this universe, there must always be war.

—A glimpse of Sideways' true motives.

Yugioh

Up to date as of February 05, 2010
(Redirected to Tribute article)

From Yu-Gi-Oh!

Tribute (Release in the OCG, formerly Sacrifice) is usually a way of voluntarily sending a card from the field to the Graveyard, often used to activate a card effect or perform a Summon. When you tribute a card it is not considered destroyed. Some examples include:

When Tributing for a card effect, the Tribute(s) are considered Costs, which means players cannot respond to the Tributes with card effects, since paying a Cost has no Spell Speed. This also means that Tributes occur before the activation of the effect that they are being Tributed for.

While Tributing a monster for a Tribute Summon is not technically considered a Cost, the Tributed monster still leaves the field before a player can respond to the action.

The term "Tribute" has recently been changed in the official rulings released by Konami in the Starter Deck 2008 deck and replaced by the term "Release".

Incidentally, while the word "Tribute" is considered proper usage for the context of the game, the words "Tributed" and "Tributing" do not exist in the English language and are in fact incorrect usage by default. As such, "Tributed" and "Tributing" are considered words coined solely for usage in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game (TCG), although originally cards read "offer(ed/ing) as a Tribute" instead of "Tribute(ed/ing)". Many players who understand this and opt to not promote bad English in a game supposedly marketed to children prefer to use phrases such as "used as a Tribute" instead of "Tributed," as well as support the change to the term "Release" as "Released" and "Releasing" are actual existing words in the English language.
