Motionless and mesmerizing, these peerless warriors fight with mind, body, and spirit, combining all into the speed of a striking adder. Attacks seem to cut through armor as though it isn't there; unstoppable, deadly maneuvers are turned on those who strike at them; wounded enemies suddenly halt in place. All these skills, and more, are the purview of the Spirit Warrior.
Level 1 - Initiate
Serpent's Fangs (attack, contact, strike) - adds damage to a normal strike (adds to base damage of weapon)
Tagline: "Vital Strike X". (see the Vital Strike description for progression at higher levels).
Flowing Parry (defense, self) - when your opponent swings, you deftly catch and redirect their blade harmlessly.
Level 2 - Apprentice
Eyes of the Serpent (attack, point and click, mind effect) - you twist your blade, reflecting light into your opponent's eyes. Mesmerize effect until the user stops twisting their blade,
takes another action, or the target is struck.
Tagline: "Natural Mesmerize"
Salau's Cunning (defense, self) - when your opponent attacks you, you lightly redirect their weapon aside and then rap them on the back of the hand with the flat of your blade. This causes them to

No Effect" to any one strike.
