Shadow Brand

I was batting around ideas for rogue skills/spells, and finally came up with something maybe workable as a possible replacement for battle focus.

Shadow Blades: Last as long as battle focus, maybe a bit more, costs the same as well. Dispellable. Instead of giving a hit/dam bonus, the skill gives the rogue's attacks a chance to ignore parry and shield block. Fluffed/desced as the rogue turning the blades into shadow to pass through the physical defenses of the target. How high a chance I'm unsure of.

Leave feedback, yo.

Re: Shadow Brand

I think that sort of stuff would fit better a shadow-based class. Maybe warlocks or an entirely new one.

Re: Shadow Brand

Skillnames could be tweaked or something obviously. The point would be to emphasize the rogue trickery aspect to get in past their opponents guard.

Re: Shadow Brand

I can't see rogues wanting to replace battle focus. I like the idea of the spell itself.

Re: Shadow Brand

The thing is...rogues don't have battle focus.

Re: Shadow Brand

Yeah, seeing as they're a melee style class without a melee buff, I would be pretty damn OK with them getting an ability that helps to mitigate some avoidance. They're meant to be quick, dirty fighters, and I feel more abilities need affect overall avoidance (both positively and negatively assuming we start to modify the rates temporarily).
Yeah? Well, you know, that's just like, your OPINION, man.

Re: Shadow Brand

You're right, I was still thinking warlocks. (It does sound like a warlock spell!)
