طريق السيف

When playing إل سورد, there will be an additional gauge below the skill hotkeys. This Way of the Sword(Also known as WotS) gauge will enable you to activate "Aura of Vitality" or "Spirit of Destruction" for a period of time.

Depending on the type of combo attack (e.g. Z and X key moves) or skill you use, the gauge will lean towards vitality or destruction. While in either "Aura of Vitality" or "Aura of Destruction", you will receive special benefits.

Note that the system they use is not what what it may appear to be at first; vitality-based attacks take away vitality from the gauge, leaning the gauge towards destruction; destruction-based attacks take away destruction from the gauge, leaning the gauge towards vitality; this is why only attacks that use the gauge area affected in the respective aura.
