A soulsphere is the form a dreamer takes when their avatar collapses, and exists as a swirling mass of energy around a glowing orb. This phenomenon occurs primarily when the DreamSoul levels in the avatar reach zero. While in soulsphere form, a dreamer cannot evoke arts or perform emotes, but can move freely. The transition to soulsphere is accompanied by a 1% loss in XP (from the total gained since character creation).
A soulsphere is usually safe from harm, however:
- The XP loss will cause a dreamer to drop orbits (and spheres) if their current XP is low enough. Teachers will normally require a second sphere task, in order to grant the lost sphere.
- If a dreamer wakes while in a soulsphere form, they will lose a significant portion of XP.
- Several arts can be cast on soulspheres that may be detrimental, most notably Dreamstrike and Drain Self.
