"A hex that transforms its caster's flesh. Temporarily reduces receive damage, but darkens one's sight.

If it cannot be observed, it does not exist. Certainly a common conception, but one with far too many exceptions in this world.

Catalyst: staff"

      This spell still surprises people. 35% is nothing to sneeze at, and tunnel vision is usually pretty easy to deal with in PvP

        Isn't it weird that the Hex made from the soul of a miracle based god from the previous game isn't cast with a sacred chime?
