Since in a bugfix they “fixed” shadows leaving blades being able to circumvent the limit of 3 blades left, I was wondering, it’s obvious you want to unspec that point since it makes no sense anymore, but what other changes would you make? Unspec the additional 2 shadows created with synch strike? Or maybe something more?
