Agreed! Descriptions on the weapon powers should be added.

ok since we're on the topic of Aura's, when I just started my Zeus warrior, I'd notice a yellow sphere would come up around me. Happened a couple times but I couldn't pinpoint what exactly triggered it. As far as I remember I was using the Cerebrus sword and had the martyrdom grenade thingy, cant remember what else I had at the time.



Okay, playing some more this morning I noticed this effect again (yellow sphere), but I was playing with my Ares guy the whole time. Noticed it in 2 separate games, and it was a couple of us that "picked it up" in the area.
I'm still not sure exactly what triggered it or who gave it to me, but it was definitely a teammate with a team boost.

The light yellow sphere you're seeing is from the L1 + Square attack on the Blade of Athena. If you do this attack near your teammates it will put a sphere around them (light yellow) for 8 seconds that blocks the next incoming source of damage.

 

The person using BoA can also put this sphere on themselves by using the attack while in the air, but this bubble only lasts 3-4 seconds.

 

Hope that helps.

The BoA is sounding more and more OP to me, lol.

plus a practice arena, so we can get a feel of the weapon after we read what it does

holy **bleep**!

this is why I need to be able to invite my friends to matches; if 2 people run around with the blade of athena and a lot of cooldown, they can't be stopped!

In this case Over Powered I believe, which is funny cause I just read a "Hammers are OP" thread a minute ago...

 

OP could also refer to the person who starts a forum thread (Original Poster)

I think the BoA only feels OP in the sense that so few things besides health fonts return health. That HoT is a huge difference maker. Play smart with a BoA and you're looking at very long kill streaks. It's odd really. It single handedly helps build towards a longetivity build, while look at some Zeus relics and you see effects that encourage or reward -dying-.
It all feels oddly muddled in that regard.
My fear is the BoA will feel required eventually. I'd rather see some different health return functions explored to take the urgency away from the blade, lest we want arenas full of them.
