So currently when we level to 25.6 we get Fulgent Blade. It is a combat art that does mental damage and reduces mental dmamge mitigation. However, the dropped adept one for level 25.6 is Dazzling Blade. Dazzling blade is a Spell instead of combat art that does the same thing, mental damage and reduces mental mitigation. Both songs costs and casting times are the same.If you attempt to scribe the adept I of Dazzling Blade it does add an extra spell instead of upgrading Fulgent Blade. I'm assuming that at some point the song was changed from a spell to a combat art and renamed, however they forgot to change all of the drop tables to reflect the change.Has anyone actually seen an upgrade for Fulgent Blade? Or, are all of the upgrades for Dazzling Blade instead? Either way at this point we can get an upgrade for the level 25.6 song, it just happens that the upgrade is a completely different ability we didn't have before.

Well, actually, you're incorrect.Both are Melee skills.Dazzling Blade is a melee attack that does mental damage, and on a successful attack, decreases mental mitigation.Fulgent Blade is a high damage mental attack that reduces enemy mental resistance.Both are on the same timer, have same cost, recast and required skill.Dazzling is Melodies based, Fulgent is Ballads based.I only have App2 Versions of both, and I have not seen an upgrade to either one as of yet.

No, they are the same skill. If you use Dazzling Blade, Fulgent will grey out and vica versa. I'd report it if I wasn't this lazy... :smileysad:

I /bugged it. It was bothering me too. Now I'm always going to wonder if there's other skills out there I could buy upgrades for that I didn't automatically get.
