Skill type: Combat Skill
One of the most dangerous and mysterious of combat skills, the Iron Vortex is a deadly force to be reckoned with.
The Hero rips open a swath in the fabric of time and space into an alternate reality that few know about. This causes a hole to be ripped open in the air, releasing a cyclonic storm of metal that slams into any foe, often leading to serious damage that can inflict dismemberment of limbs, severe lacerations and cuts, even decapitation.
This skill has proven highly useful against soft opponents with minimal armor.
Against mechanical opponents it also appears to have an adverse effect as metal scrapes on metal, resulting in a terrific din and a welding of joints.
It has been said that those who have mastered this skill will forgo using the portal, and instead draw the metal from their surrounds, in the ground or from equipment, and have even summoned a twister of razor sharp metal to bear down upon their foes, leaving nothing but a pool of their essential ingredients.
- As the power of the skill grows, larger and sharper metal shards are expelled, inflicting severe lacerations and pink eye.
- At later levels, the edges of the metal will become jagged and rough, increasing the chances of causing severe damage.
- At mastery level, the metal plates become rusted, invoking a chance to inflict tetanus upon any foe who happens to survive the sheer power of this attack.
See that ? That's not a statue. That was a knight in full armor
