Bladedance

Some swordsmen realize that fight is not just brutal hack-and-slash action but it is actually a form of art. As they move their blades they maintain certain grace and over time the way they fight starts to remind bystanders of dance. And such swordsmen see no reason to disagree. They actually begin to improve the artistic side of their movements and in time they can even inspire their groupmates to better performance. Even when swordsman ends her dance, its effect can remains for a short while afterwards. Maintaining a bladedance requires increasing amount of vitality and aside from that, it causes fatigues her so she can't keep up her dance indefinitely with trivial refreshing magic. Bladedance improves swordsman parrying ability a bit.
