  • Psychic Blades Psychic Blades — Whenever a clone would be summoned, you instead stock a blade. Blades persist indefinitely until used. Your shatters are replaced with Bladesongs that consume your stocked blades, but still count as shatters for the purposes of core traits. While out of combat, you will automatically stock a blade every 10 seconds.
  • Jagged Mind Jagged MindBlade attacks inflict bleeding on critical hits. A percentage of your condition damage dealt heals you.
  • Deadly Blades Deadly BladesBlades inflict vulnerability on critical hits. After successfully casting a Bladesong, increase all damage dealt for a short time. This does not stack.
