Sword weapon skill
Skill Level: 300 (Paladin, Blue Mage, Warrior, Dark Knight, Red Mages or Rune Fencer only)
Description: Drains a percentage of damage dealt to HP varying with TP.
Sneak Attack: Does not stack with Sneak Attack.
  • Will inflict damage on undead but will not drain HP.
  • Not aligned with any elemental gorgets or elemental belts due to its absence of Skillchain properties.
  • Does not interrupt other skillchains.
  • Appears to use (PlayerINT - TargetINT)*2 rather than fINT. This INT difference does not appear to cap, making INT very potent for this WS
  • Magic Attack Bonus increases this far more than INT, unknown if there is a MAB cap to the damage.
