Seer Stone Edit
The Seer Stone, like the Astral Barrier, operates by using essence aura projected through spells to detect nearby objects. It can be controlled by focused the etherium to a particular type of object, and the resonant frequency of the etherium can be dictated through the use of a rune combination. Without the use of a rune combination, the resonant frequency fluctuates unpredictably and cannot be avoided. The Seer Stone however, is meant for a more subtle approach; allowing the object to continue, but emitting a small signal that often activates much more powerful defenses.
