Skill Design[edit]

This skill works much like Hunter Aspects in World of Warcraft, it will only work when it is active, and can be activated/deactivated at will. This skill has moderate use, since it only pays 20% of the cost in health, still requiring 80% to be payed in mana (assumed). However, if combined with Spirit Vessel, this skill might become more useful when spamming spells to take down a tough enemy.
