Syphon Vim is a melee-range mental mutation which, when activated vampirically drains a touched organic target over the course of 20 rounds, damaging them and healing you for the duration of the bond.
Each round a target is afflicted with Syphon Vim, they will attempt to defend against the damage with their mental armor. If successful, the target will defend against the attack for only that round and will have to defend again for all subsequent rounds.
Cooldown: 200 rounds.
- Extremely high damage and healing capability for melee and even ranged combatant alike
- Once a bond with the target is established, the user may move away and continue to benefit from the drain.
- Ability can only be activated at melee range
- The bond with the target will desist immediately if should the target breaks from your field vision. In short, the distance of the bond is as far as your eye can see.
- Long cooldown, even at decently high willpower
