Umbral Incantor Evolution for Shadowblade

Short Name: 

Adds a new evolution for Shadowblades, the Umbral Incantor.

As an Umbral Incantor, the Shadowblade will regenerate 1 mana per turn and gain several bonuses to their talents if they are equipped with a staff:

- Shadow Combat: the damage will also be triggered when you cast Channel Staff, and when triggered this way can be a spell critical
- Shadowstep: teleport back to starting location after the attack
- lluminate: will use Shadow Dance without cost or triggering cooldown
- Invisibility: will be cast instantly without cost when Stealth is deactivated (still triggers cooldown)
- Shadow Grasp: will pin for 3 turns instead of pulling
- Shadow Veil: rather than blink and attack, you will cast Shadow Grasp on targets selected (without cost and ignoring cooldown and failure chances)
- Lethality: staffs gain a Dexterity damage modifier equal to twice the crit bonus
- Expose Weakness: (if not on cooldown) will be used instantly when casting Shadowstep (before the return teleport), using stamina as usual and going on cooldown for twice the usual duration
- Blade Flurry: (while sustained) also gain spell cooldown reduction equal to the attack speed bonus and an equal chance on spell hit to cast Channel Staff
- Snap: also affect an equal number of spells ("spell/" category talents)


Short Name: 

Adds the enhancement category to Shadowblade, and shadow magic to Arcane Blade.

Shadowblade Cantrips

Short Name: 

Gives Shadowblades the Spell / Cantrips tree, an offensive/utility light tree.

Spell / Cantrips (Mag, 1.0)

Dazzling Light:
Conjures up light into a powerful bolt doing light damage with a 25% chance to blind for 3 turns.
At level 4 it becomes a beam.
The damage will increase with your Spellpower.

Projected Image:
Projects an Illusion for 6/14 turns to distract your foes. This illusion will periodically force any foes to attack them. It can also explode, dealing light damage in a radius of 1/2, and will always do so if it suffers from fatal damage. The explosion damage will increase with your level and talent level.
It will get (12 + low talent scaling) Constitution, (17 + better talent scaling) Dexterity and 18 Cunning.
This illusion will inherit increased damage% and increased damage penetration% from you. With Blighted Summoning it will get a bonus to Magic equal to yours and Curse of Impotence at talent level 1/3.

You start vanishing from sight, moving 300%/700% faster and gaining 10% chance to evade melee attacks for 1/3 game turns.
When this effect ends you'll become invisible (some power) for 3/7 turns.
As you become invisible you fade out of phase with reality, all your damage is reduced by 50%%.
Any actions other than moving will end the movement speed boost and activate the invisibility prematurely.
The invisibility power will increase with your Spellpower.

Inflicts light damage, shocks and attempts to confuse (20%/40% power) all creatures in a radius 1/3 ball for 2/3 turns.
The damage will scale with your Spellpower.

Test 2: some tweaks (mostly visual) to Dazzling Light

Test 1: initial release

Phantasm Redux

Short Name: 

Changes around the Spell/Phantasm tree.

Shadowblades will lose the ability to cast illuminate at will for damage, but they get a few other things to make up for it.

T1 - Illuminate: Light up the area and blind in a big radius.
T2 - Blur Image: Gives defense, bonus stealth, and projectile evasion.
T3 - Dancing Lights: Every turn, summon a short-lived light in radius 4. Nearby enemies will be taunted by it, changing their target and making the deal less damage to other things while the light is alive.
T4 - Counter Flare: Whenever you lose a damage shield or break stealth, cast illuminate. This illuminate will also deal damage equal to a % of the damage shield's power or your stealth.
