Blade/tsw is one of the weapon-based skill sets in the Melee skill wheel. This weapon type encompasses a variety of bladed weapons. Blades have many Focus and Frenzy abilities, and are well suited to characters fulfilling a tank or damage role. Blades are associated with Hate, Frenzy, Focus, Penetration, Afflicted, and Impaired.


Main article: Skills

Blades skills are split into Damage and Survivability aspects.

  • Damage: Two Cuts - Whenever you hit an enemy with a Blade ability, you apply the Two Cuts effect. Hitting the enemy with a Blade Ability consumes this effect to deal additional damage. (6 damage 1 Skill Point)
  • Survivability: Vigour - When an enemy attack glances you, you gain a percentage of the damage it dealt back as healing. (15% at 1 Skill Point)


Main article: Ability

All Active Abilities require a blade in order to function. Passive Skills do not require a weapon, but some Passive Abilities modify a specific Active Ability that may require one.

As with all Abilities, the player can only use one Elite Active Ability and one Elite Passive Ability at any one time.

The list of Blades abilities can be found here.


Main article: Weapons

All active skills here require the use of an ability specific-type weapon. Passive skills do not require a weapon, but some passives modify a specific active skill, which in turn requires the use of a specific weapon.
