Shift cores are a new type of item added in Elona+ 1.44. Obtainable through wishing (including outside wizard mode).
They require the target to be at 50 gauge and when used, they allow for temporary changes to portrait, sprite, and name, while applying a buff. Pets can use them as well.
It's necessary to set the name, sprite, and portrait, after changing for the first time, as it can't be done beforehand. Afterwards, that information will be saved.
Using alpha, beta, gamma, or delta shift cores gives Form Shift hex (though the effect of each respective shift core is different) that lasts 200 turns, while the omega shift core gives Final Shift hex that lasts 150 turns.
Both Form Shift and Final Shift increase the power gauge's limit from 100% to 200%. If <Gauge Release> is used when the gauge is at 200%, it will additionally stop time for 1 turn.
|Alpha||Grants +20% and +5 Strength and Perception, and +40 magic reflection.|
|Beta||Grants +20% and +5 Dexterity and Magic, and +120 Magic Resistance.|
|Delta||Grants +20% and +5 Constitution, +20% and +50 PV, amplified healing, and adds 10% to the chance of completely nullifying damage.|
Grants +20% and +5 Strength, Constitution, Dexterity, Perception, Magic, Speed, +120 Magic Resistance, and also negates per-turn power gauge depletion. However, it decreases HP and MP by 1/150 each turn (minimum of 1 HP/MP lost per turn), but this effect won't kill you even if you go into negative HP.
