- Psyblade Power Level Notes
- Psyblade is most useful when you chose the Soul Blade subclass, it basically boosts your melee damage and allows you to quickly gain enough focus to cast a Cipher Abilities.
- You may like to focus one certain weapon, and save the ability points for more useful ones (especially these boost your damage or stunt enemies, like Brutal Backlash. If you really want to use more weapon types, try Black Jacket.)
Bonus: Max focus is increased by 5. Reaching Max focus grants "Ascended" effect temporarily, increasing power level and reducing power focus cost to 0. Soul Whip does not turn off while Ascended and provides more bonus damage during Ascended.
Penalty: While not Ascended, receive a penalty to Cipher's Power Level (-1). While not Ascended Soul Whip does much less damage, but generate more Focus. When Ascended fades, reduce focus to 0.
Bonus: Gains "Soul Annihilation" ability: a soul-enhanced melee strike that consumes the cipher's remaining power pool to converts it into Raw damage on the target. Shred Cipher spells cost less focus (-5).
