    Magic

    Primary Magic: Tergiversation Arts
    Secondary Magic: (Must be filled in later. Magic you trained for goes here)
    Caster or Holder: I guess it would be a Caster because it's not really a "Magic"
    Description: Tergiversation Arts is a form of manipulating magic with the user's aura. The user can redirect spells and use them against their foes, cancel supportive magic, stop a close-up spell causing the foe to be only able to use their base attributes without magic, or even give said user silence for a given amount of time.

    Users of this magic have been known for their ability to carry magical items and canceling the magical properties of the items. This makes them useful for carrying cursed objects. However, once the object is out of the user's grasp, the magical effects of the object return.

    Users can redirect a spell a rank higher by using two redirection spells one after the other. By doing this the user must hit a spell multiple times. Thus receiving damage from a spell of a higher rank.

    D = 1 D rank Spell
    C = 2 D rank Spells
    B = 2 C rank Spells
    A = 2 B Rank Spells
    S = 2 A rank Spells (worry about XYZ ranks later because lets face it... :/)

    Strengths:
    +This magic cancels other magic to the amount of their rank with the use of a Shatter Spell.
    +Long distance spells of the same rank can be sent flying right back at a foe with the same status effects, damage, and strength AS LONG AS IT TAKES ONE REDIRECT SPELL TO SEND IT BACK.
    +The magic also has a way of causing silence to foes. This can only be unlocked at B rank because that is a side effect from fusing together two Shatter Spells.
    +Redirect spells have multiple uses such as redirecting long range spells and canceling short range attack spells.
    Weaknesses:
    -If Aria the user has to use two or more spells to redirect a spell a rank higher than her, she will have to take half of the physical damage from the spell and all of the status effects.
    -When a spell is redirected it is no longer the foe's spell anymore.Example: If the spell is a slayer spell that is taken, the user can send it back, but the slayer can eat the spell that is sent flying back.
    -To cause silence, the user must hit the foe with a fused Shatter spell 1 rank higher than the foe.
    - REDIRECT SPELLS CANNOT BE FUSED NO MATTER WHAT! This is because Redirect spells are more of a fluid movement or a blocking move from Aria. Fusing Redirect spells are impossible.
    - Redirect spells cannot debuff users who have buffed speed.

    Lineage: working on this

    Unique Abilities:

    Combat Mastery:

    Training in Tergiversation Arts includes the mastery of multiple weapons. The user usually uses everything around them as a weapon more so than actual swords, etc.

    Contortionism (unlocked at C Rank):


    One of the key rules in Tergiversation Arts is that the user must always use fluid movements. So the user is very flexible and acrobatic.

    Mult-Utility Redirect:

    Users of Tergiversation Arts are able to use the spell Redirect for three uses:
    *To redirect long distance spells
    *To stop incoming physical attacks such as a fire punch or swift wind kick
    *To be used one after another as a combo attack
    Magical Item Cancellation:

    [center]Magic items that she touches won't have an effect. This means that she is able to unlock magically locked doors (STORY USE ONLY I'm not going to hack into guilds without permission). This is a double-edged sword. She cannot use magical items what so ever. [/c
    enter]
    D Rank Spells:

    Spells:
    Name: Redirect D Rank
    Rank: D
    Type: Counter
    Duration:Instant
    Cooldown: 2 Posts
    Description: Against Distance Damage:

    At long distance: Aria sends a punch or kick and a magical seal is formed. The seal then shatters into pieces and surrounds the spell. The spell goes Aria and back at her foes at 25% less damage, speed, and 75% less damaging/debuffing the status effects would cause.

    The spell can be comboed up with different spells to equal the rank of the target spell she wants to send back, however, the spell will be sent back with 50% less damage, speed, and 95% less damaging/debuffing the status effects would cause. Aria, on the other hand, will take 50% damage and 25% debuffs/status effects.

    Against Up Close Damage: Aria blocks a spell (like a fire punch or kick), a seal appears like a barrier between her and her foe. If that spell is a D rank spell the user will break the seal like glass. The shards of the seal will surround the user and null the elemental spell.

    Strengths:
    + Ability to send spells back at a D Rank cost
    + Ability to multicast this spell with another Redirect spell
    Weaknesses:
    - When used as a combo spell, Aria will take damage.
    - When used as in close up combat Aria will be taking physical damage.
    - Also when used in close up range, she is unable to use this spell as a debuff. This means that it is only used for ATTACKING CLOSE RANGE SPELLS ONLY.
    - Aria is unable to use this spell as a blocking spell with spells C rank or higher.

    Name: Redirect D Rank
    Rank: D
    Type: Counter
    Duration:Instant
    Cooldown: 2 Posts

    - Aria is unable to use this spell as a blocking spell with spells C rank or higher.


    Name: Shatter D Rank
    Rank: D
    Type: Counter
    Duration:Instant
    Cooldown: 2 Posts
    Description: Aria will slice through a spell causing that spell to shatter into many different pieces.
    Strengths:
    + Works only on AoE of D rank.

    Weaknesses:
    - Can only be used on D rank AoE spells.
    - Can only be fused with Shatter Spells at B Rank.

    Name: Boost Redirect D Rank
    Rank: D
    Type: Buff
    Duration: 2
    Cooldown: 4 Posts
    Description: Aria puts her index and middle fingers together than forms them into a diamond. She then crosses her middle fingers over her index fingers. A magical seal will form in front of her and then shatters into many pieces. The shards then latch to her body and then fade away only leaving behind a glowing blue aura. This spell boosts her redirect for 2 posts. She will be able to redirect D rank spells with one hit with out losing any damage, speed, or status. However if she comboes against a C rank spell the same effects of her Redirect D spell stay the same. She will lose the same amount of damage etc. She will also take damage. This buff however will cause her Redirect D rank spells to cost two times as much mana to use.
    Strengths:
    +Boosts the effects of Redirect D

    Weaknesses:
    -Does not affect C rank spells at all
    -Makes her Redirect Spells cost double the amount of mana to play

    Hi Aria, my name is Tamashi and I will be your grader this time around. Any requests or alterations I ask of you will be made in this wonderful colour. If you have any questions, worries or concerns please feel to send me a message.

    Grading Request:

    Primary Magic: Tergiversation Arts
    Secondary Magic: (Must be filled in later. Magic you trained for goes here)
    Caster or Holder: I guess it would be a Caster because it's not really a "Magic"
    Description: Tergiversation Arts is a form of manipulating magic with the user's aura. The user can steal spells and use them against their foes, cancel supportive magic, stop a close-up spell causing the foe to be only able to use their base attributes without magic, or even give said user silence for a given amount of time.

    Users of this magic have been known for their ability to carry magical items and canceling the magical properties of the items. This makes them useful for carrying cursed objects. However, once the object is out of the user's grasp, the magical effects of the object return.
    As you must be holding an object to use this magic, it would be classed as a holder type of magic, I ask you to change from caster to holder.

    Users can steal a spell a rank higher by combining redirection spells. By doing this the user must hit a spell multiple times.
    Please change this to same rank or lower please.

    D = 1 D rank Spell
    C = 2 D rank Spells
    B = 2 C rank Spells 4 D rank Spells
    A = 2 B Rank Spells 4 C rank Spells 8 D rank Spells
    S = 2 A rank Spells 4 B rank Spells 16 D rank Spells

    The combo of hits of said spell has to match the rank of the spell, not the rank of the user of the spell. Which means if an S rank foe were to hit a B rank user with a D rank spell, the D rank spell can be stolen. However if the spell is taken. The spell is then weakened down to the strength of the user of Tergaversation Arts.


    Strengths:
    +This magic cancels other magic to the amount of their rank.
    Please change this to 'has a chance to cancel other magics of same rank or lower'
    +Long distance spells can be stolen and sent flying right back at a foe.
    How does it get sent back?
    +The magic also has a way of causing silence to foes.
    Please elaborate how this happens
    Weaknesses:
    -The user can only steal a spell one rank higher
    Please place this one rank or below
    -When a spell is stolen it is no longer the foe's spell anymore. If the spell is a slayer spell that is taken, the user can send it back, but the slayer can eat the spell that is sent flying back. When a spell is stolen it is no longer the foe's spell anymore.
    please remove the last sentence as you have already said it at the beginning.
    -The magic has an effect on close range spells, but close range spells cannot be taken, they can only be canceled out.
    Again please state that it has a 'chance'
    -To cause silence, the user must hit the foe with a spell 1 rank higher than the foe.
    -Tergiversation Arts is not a magic that can be used for flight, but the user can redirect long distance spells to lift off. 
    This seems to contradict itself could you reword it please

    Contortionism- One of the key rules in Tergiversation Arts is that the user must always use fluid movements. So the user is very flexible and acrobatic.
    Aura Reading- A mage who learns tergiversation arts will be able to understand the magic surrounding them more and more as they grow in power. One of the powers that starts to immerge is the ability to look at someone and know what the abilities of their foes are. This is basically by looking at the magical aura around them.
    This can be seen as breaking the 4th wall, so without the linage you will either have to change this or state that it is for pve only

    Aura Reading Ability for Aria: She does not have that ability at D Rank. Everything is just a guess.

    D Rank Spells:

    Spells:

    Name: Redirect D Rank

    Does she take any damage from distance if so how much? How much does the returned spell do in damage? How far does your opponent have to be from you for it to be classed as distant? What is the max distance she can try deflect a spell from
    The spell can be comboed up with different spells to equal the rank of the target spell she wants to send back.
    Please state how much the additional damage is of the returned spell
    Strengths:

    Very quick cast
    able to send back a D rank spell and be comboed with another spell to equal the strength of the spell she wants to send back.

    if combo is broken, Aria will take all damage of the spell.
    When she is fighting up close she still takes damage from that person if she redirects the buff
    Does not work on summons, just their distance damage spells.

    Duration:Instant
    Cooldown: 2 Posts
    Description: Aria will slice through a spell causing that spell to shatter into many different pieces.
    Please reword to 'if' and 'has a chance' as it stands now it seems like an immunity to a spell, in addition how close do the enemies need to be minimum and what is the maximum range
    Strengths:
    + Works on both close up and distance damage.

    Weaknesses:
    - Can only be used on D rank spells.
    - Is not a combo finisher and cannot be combined with the Redirect Spells.

    Once these requests are tended to bump this thread and I will come back as soon as I can.

    As you must be holding an object to use this magic, it would be classed as a holder type of magic, I ask you to change from caster to holder.
    Disagreed: This is part of the description. The purpose of this is to let everyone know that a person using this magic can cancel out the effects of magical items. Therefore I will not remove this or change my magic to a holder type.
    Conceded I misread

    Users can steal a spell a rank higher by combining redirection spells. By doing this the user must hit a spell multiple times.
    Please change this to same rank or lower please.
    Disagreed: I said "a rank higher" because this is a magic about redirection and counters this is not a run of the mill magic. The user of this magic would have to use a large amount of mana to even take a spell compared to the next rank higher.

    D = 1 D rank Spell
    C = 2 D rank Spells
    B = 2 C rank Spells 4 D rank Spells
    A = 2 B Rank Spells 4 C rank Spells 8 D rank Spells
    S = 2 A rank Spells 4 B rank Spells 16 D rank Spells

    The combo of hits of said spell has to match the rank of the spell, not the rank of the user of the spell. Which means if an S rank foe were to hit a B rank user with a D rank spell, the D rank spell can be stolen. However if the spell is taken. The spell is then weakened down to the strength of the user of Tergaversation Arts.
    After speaking to and admin, this must be removed from this section and either be made into a unique ability or make them it into spells, because this is acting like a fusion spell which is locked until B-Rank.


    Strengths:
    +This magic cancels other magic to the amount of their rank.
    Please change this to 'has a chance to cancel other magics of same rank or lower'
    Okay
    +Long distance spells can be stolen and sent flying right back at a foe.
    How does it get sent back?
    With the use of a Redirect Spell
    +The magic also has a way of causing silence to foes.
    Please elaborate how this happens
    Rank is too low to explain.
    This is an overall magic strength so please elaborate on how the your magic can silence or remove this completely.
    Weaknesses:
    -The user can only steal a spell one rank higher
    Please place this one rank or below
    Disagreed: Explained above
    After speaking to an admin this isn't really a weakness, as explained above please remove this as it is part of the quoted area.
    -When a spell is stolen it is no longer the foe's spell anymore. If the spell is a slayer spell that is taken, the user can send it back, but the slayer can eat the spell that is sent flying back. When a spell is stolen it is no longer the foe's spell anymore.
    please remove the last sentence as you have already said it at the beginning.
    Okay
    As this is part of the quoted area this has to be removed also
    -The magic has an effect on close range spells, but close range spells cannot be taken, they can only be canceled out.
    Again please state that it has a 'chance'
    Sure why not
    Again after talking to an admin this must be removed as a weakness, it has been deemed more as a unique ability or spell
    -To cause silence, the user must hit the foe with a spell 1 rank higher than the foe.
    Please reword this as it stands it has been deemed that you can cancel a persons complete magic and is not allowed.
    -Tergiversation Arts is not a magic that can be used for flight, but the user can redirect long distance spells to lift off. 
    This seems to contradict itself could you reword it please
    I'll add an explanation
    Lineage: working on this

    Unique Abilities:
    Combat Mastery- Training in Tergiversation Arts includes the mastery of multiple weapons. The user usually uses everything around them as a weapon more so than actual swords, etc.
    Contortionism- One of the key rules in Tergiversation Arts is that the user must always use fluid movements. So the user is very flexible and acrobatic.

    This can be seen as breaking the 4th wall, so without the linage you will either have to change this or state that it is for pve only
    I'll just reword this a bit more.
    I would say they know the general type for example that they are a caster,
    and they a slayer type but do not know what their abilities or spells are


    Aura Reading Ability for Aria: She does not have that ability at D Rank. Everything is just a guess.

    D Rank Spells:

    Spells:

    Name: Redirect D Rank
    Rank: D
    Type: Counter
    Duration:Instant
    Cooldown: 1 Post
    The minimum post of a D rank spell is two, so please up this by one
    Description: Against Distance Damage: Aria punches or kicks the spell and sends it back at her opponent.
    Against Up close Damage: Aria activates the repelling effect and only takes unbuffed physical damage.
    Does she take any damage from distance if so how much? How much does the returned spell do in damage? How far does your opponent have to be from you for it to be classed as distant? What is the max distance she can try deflect a spell from
    Alright I'll add in that information.
    The spell can be comboed up with different spells to equal the rank of the target spell she wants to send back.
    Please state how much the additional damage is of the returned spell
    This is classed as spell fusion and is not allowed until B-Rank
    Strengths:
    Very low cooldown
    Very quick cast
    able to send back a D rank spell and be comboed with another spell to equal the strength of the spell she wants to send back.
    Please state the damage of the reflective spell
    This would be an ability of a fusion spell, so isn't allowed

    Weaknesses:
    When used as a combo attack, Aria takes a quarter damage of the incoming spell
    if combo is broken, Aria will take all damage of the spell.
    This spell is not allowed to combine with other spells as it would be classed as spell fusion
    When she is fighting up close she still takes damage from that person if she redirects the buff
    Does not work on summons, just their distance damage spells.
    Please bullet point your strengths and weaknesses
    Sure thing

    Does not work on summons, just their distance damage spells.
    This is the exact same as your first spell please redo
    Absolutely not: this is a magic about redirection and nothing in the rules states that I can't use the same spell in my magic multiple times. As far as your application template goes, each spell is a slot for a skill. Therefore my skill is the same skill in each rank.


    Name: Redirect D Rank
    Rank: D
    Type: Counter
    Duration:Instant
    Cooldown: 1 Post
    Description: Against Distance Damage: Aria punches or kicks the spell and sends it back at her opponent.
    Against Up close Damage: Aria activates the repelling effect and only takes unbuffed physical damage.

    The spell can be comboed up with different spells to equal the rank of the target spell she wants to send back.
    Strengths:
    Very low cooldown
    Very quick cast
    able to send back a D rank spell and be comboed with another spell to equal the strength of the spell she wants to send back.

    Weaknesses:
    When used as a combo attack, Aria takes a quarter damage of the incoming spell
    if combo is broken, Aria will take all damage of the spell.
    When she is fighting up close she still takes damage from that person if she redirects the buff
    Does not work on summons, just their distance damage spells.
    This spell is the exact same as your first please redo
    No.
    You are right that there is nothing saying you can't have the same spell but as it stands you would only have two spells as the two above do not stack with the first, so I suggest mixing it up and trying to create others. Also note that the base cooldown for a d rank spell is 2, that nulling and counter chains are against the rules.

    Name: Shatter D Rank
    Rank: D
    Type: Counter
    Duration:Instant
    Cooldown: 2 Posts
    Description: Aria will slice through a spell causing that spell to shatter into many different pieces.
    Please reword to 'if' and 'has a chance' as it stands now it seems like an immunity to a spell, in addition how close do the enemies need to be minimum and what is the maximum rangeThere is no distance between her and the spell. The spell hits and she slices through it.
    Strengths:
    + Works on both close up and distance damage.

    Weaknesses:
    - Can only be used on D rank spells.
    - Is not a combo finisher and cannot be combined with the Redirect Spells.

    Once these requests are tended to bump this thread and I will come back as soon as I can.

    I have left my comments. You may continue to grade as you wish, but there are things I disagree with.

    I have added what I wish changed.

    As before all alterations or requests will be done in this wonderful colour. If you have any questions or concerns don't hesitate to message me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

    With that being said lets continue with the grading...

    Grading continued:

    Primary Magic: Tergiversation Arts
    Secondary Magic: (Must be filled in later. Magic you trained for goes here)
    Caster or Holder: I guess it would be a Caster because it's not really a "Magic"
    Description: Tergiversation Arts is a form of manipulating magic with the user's aura. The user can redirect spells and use them against their foes, cancel supportive magic, stop a close-up spell causing the foe to be only able to use their base attributes without magic, or even give said user silence for a given amount of time.

    Users of this magic have been known for their ability to carry magical items and canceling the magical properties of the items. This makes them useful for carrying cursed objects. However, once the object is out of the user's grasp, the magical effects of the object return.
    This also seems like a unique ability so would ask for it to be placed there if you wish to use it.

    Users can redirect a spell a rank higher by using two redirection spells one after the other. By doing this the user must hit a spell multiple times. Thus receiving damage from a spell of a higher rank.

    D = 1 D rank Spell
    C = 2 D rank Spells
    B = 2 C rank Spells
    A = 2 B Rank Spells
    S = 2 A rank Spells (worry about XYZ ranks later because lets face it... :/)
    I'm going to ask for the above to be moved to being a unique ability, please state where the magic is redirected to. Also bare in mind that some people are immune to their own magic.

    Strengths:
    +This magic cancels other magic to the amount of their rank with the use of a Shatter Spell.
    Please reword this a little to has a chance to cancel, as it stands now it seems like your spell will auto hit.
    +Long distance spells of the same rank can be sent flying right back at a foe with the same status effects, damage, and strength AS LONG AS IT TAKES ONE REDIRECT SPELL TO SEND IT BACK.
    Please change this to the maximum of 50% of the spells original damage of same rank or lower, status affects may only do 25% of the original damage where applicable also state that some status may not be sent back (i.e restraining)
    +The magic also has a way of causing silence to foes. This can only be unlocked at B rank because that is a side effect from fusing together two Shatter Spells.
    As stated above silencing a person completely even for a short time is not allowed so please reword.
    +Redirect spells have multiple uses such as redirecting long range spells and canceling short range attack spells.
    Spells can only really have one ability, so you can switch dependant on range.
    Please reword this if you mean it differently.

    Weaknesses:
    -If Aria the user has to use two or more spells to redirect a spell a rank higher than her, she will have to take half of the physical damage from the spell and all of the status effects.
    -When a spell is redirected it is no longer the foe's spell anymore.Example: If the spell is a slayer spell that is taken, the user can send it back, but the slayer can eat the spell that is sent flying back.
    The spell will always be the opponents as it used their mana to create it so I ask you reword this
    -To cause silence, the user must hit the foe with a fused Shatter spell 1 rank higher than the foe.
    As stated before you can not fully silence a person even for a short time.
    - REDIRECT SPELLS CANNOT BE FUSED NO MATTER WHAT! This is because Redirect spells are more of a fluid movement or a blocking move from Aria. Fusing Redirect spells are impossible.
    - Redirect spells cannot debuff users who have buffed speed.

    Lineage: working on this

    Unique Abilities:

    Combat Mastery:

    Training in Tergiversation Arts includes the mastery of multiple weapons. The user usually uses everything around them as a weapon more so than actual swords, etc.

    Contortionism (unlocked at C Rank):


    One of the key rules in Tergiversation Arts is that the user must always use fluid movements. So the user is very flexible and acrobatic.

    Mult-Utility Redirect:

    Users of Tergiversation Arts are able to use the spell Redirect for three uses:
    *To redirect long distance spells
    *To stop incoming physical attacks such as a fire punch or swift wind kick
    *To be used one after another as a combo attack
    Three effects on a unique ability is a little to much without a downfall, so please remove one. If you wish to keep the third one please add further details as to what you mean
    Magical Item Cancellation:

    [center]Magic items that she touches won't have an effect. This means that she is able to unlock magically locked doors (STORY USE ONLY I'm not going to hack into guilds without permission). This is a double-edged sword. She cannot use magical items what so ever. [/c
    enter]
    D Rank Spells:

    Spells:
    Name: Redirect D Rank
    Rank: D
    Type: Counter
    Duration:Instant
    Cooldown: 2 Posts
    Description: Against Distance Damage:

    At long distance: Aria sends a punch or kick and a magical seal is formed. The seal then shatters into pieces and surrounds the spell. The spell goes Aria and back at her foes at 25% less damage, speed, and 75% less damaging/debuffing the status effects would cause.
    The way this is worded is confusing, please note that the maximum I would allow is 50% maximum to be sent back and effects to work only 25% effective.

    The spell can be comboed up with different spells to equal the rank of the target spell she wants to send back, however, the spell will be sent back with 50% less damage, speed, and 95% less damaging/debuffing the status effects would cause. Aria, on the other hand, will take 50% damage and 25% debuffs/status effects.
    Please remove what is in the blue as it is covered in the paragraph above.
    Also saying 'comboed' with other spells makes it seem almost like a fusion and isn't permitted until B-Rank so please place more detail into what you mean by comboed.


    Against Up Close Damage: Aria blocks a spell (like a fire punch or kick), a seal appears like a barrier between her and her foe. If that spell is a D rank spell the user will break the seal like glass. The shards of the seal will surround the user and null the elemental spell.
    This falls under this or that, so please choose long range or short range you can not have both in the same spell.

    Strengths:
    + Ability to send spells back at a D Rank cost
    + Ability to multicast this spell with another Redirect spell
    Weaknesses:
    - When used as a combo spell, Aria will take damage.
    - When used as in close up combat Aria will be taking physical damage.
    - Also when used in close up range, she is unable to use this spell as a debuff. This means that it is only used for ATTACKING CLOSE RANGE SPELLS ONLY.
    - Aria is unable to use this spell as a blocking spell with spells C rank or higher.

    Name: Redirect D Rank
    Rank: D
    Type: Counter
    Duration:Instant
    Cooldown: 2 Posts

    Weaknesses:
    - When used as a combo spell, Aria will take damage.
    - When used as in close up combat Aria will be taking physical damage.
    - Also when used in close up range, she is unable to use this spell as a debuff. This means that it is only used for ATTACKING CLOSE RANGE SPELLS ONLY.
    - Aria is unable to use this spell as a blocking spell with spells C rank or higher.
    Same as above, I would suggest having one as long range and the other as short range and place it as a overall magic strength that when these two are active at the same time then the most appropriate effect is used.


    Name: Shatter D Rank
    Rank: D
    Type: Counter
    Duration:Instant
    Cooldown: 2 Posts
    Description: Aria will slice through a spell causing that spell to shatter into many different pieces.
    What happens to the shattered spell and do you take any damage?
    Strengths:
    + Works only on AoE of D rank.

    Weaknesses:
    - Can only be used on D rank AoE spells.
    - Can only be fused with Shatter Spells at B Rank.

    Name: Boost Redirect D Rank
    Rank: D
    Type: Buff
    Duration: 2
    Cooldown: 4 Posts
    Description: Aria puts her index and middle fingers together than forms them into a diamond. She then crosses her middle fingers over her index fingers. A magical seal will form in front of her and then shatters into many pieces. The shards then latch to her body and then fade away only leaving behind a glowing blue aura. This spell boosts her redirect for 2 posts. She will be able to redirect D rank spells with one hit with out losing any damage, speed, or status. This seems like an immunity, so I ask that you change it to 10% damage and if status effect that it's only 5% effective However if she comboes against a C rank spell the same effects of her Redirect D spell stay the same. She will lose the same amount of damage etc. She will also take damage. This buff however will cause her Redirect D rank spells to cost two times as much mana to use.Please take out what I have highlighted in blue as the percentage request will be fine to cover damage and status effects done by spells.

    Strengths:
    +Boosts the effects of Redirect D

    Weaknesses:
    -Does not affect C rank spells at all
    -Makes her Redirect Spells cost double the amount of mana to play


    When required fixes are done bump this and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
