Blade is a profession mechanic of Virtuoso, an elite specialization of Mesmer, that partially replaces Mesmer's Illusion mechanic. It is a resource generated by Virtuoso's skills and traits and expended by using Virtuoso's Bladesong skills. Additionally, Mesmer's clone skills stock up blades instead of creating clones. Phantasms will still be summoned normally, but after completing their attack they add a blade charge instead of turning into a clone.

Up to 5 blade charges can be stored at a time, indicated by the icon Clone inactive.png, which replaces Mesmer's icon Clone active.png. Several Mesmer's and most Virtuoso's skills receive the skill property Power attribute.png Blade. These skills "throw blades" but don't consume blade charges. Instead, "Blade" skills are granted additional effects by several Virtuoso's traits.
