Abilities

Special Ability

The Special Ability for Blades is called Spirit Blade. Note that unlike other weapons, this special ability takes the name of the regular ability that is required to activate it.

Whenever you hit with a Blade ability you have a 50% chance to generate Chi. When you have accumulated 5 Chi you have 5 seconds to consume them and cast the Blade Special ability Spirit Blade. If you do not use the Spirit Blade ability within that 5 seconds, you will instead consume all Chi and gain a heal over time effect that lasts for 3 seconds and heals you for 7% of your maximum hit points each second.

After activating the Spirit Blade ability, you do increased damage with Blade abilities for 10 seconds. The amount of extra damage done is based on your current Combat Power.

You can also continue to gain Chi while Spirit Blade is active. While Spirit Blade is active, you can reuse the ability to gain additional time to the Damage Bonus. The amount of time gained depends on the amount of Chi used when the ability is reused.

  • 1 Chi = .5 seconds
  • 2 Chi = 1 second
  • 3 Chi = 2 seconds
  • 4 Chi = 4 seconds
  • 5 Chi = 6 seconds

Note that when the Spirit Blade damage bonus expires all gathered Chi is lost, so once it is activated it is best to try to keep using Chi to extend it.
