Temporal Reversion has a chance to activate upon a failed defense against a physical attack (melee, bolt, and maneuver). A successful activation will 'snap' the wizard back in time to immediately before the attack occurred and, having knowledge of the oncoming blow, grants the wizard an increase of +200 to their generic defensive strength (DS) as well as a comparable increase in maneuver defense. The base chance for this to occur is 10%, and can be increased by training in Elemental Mana Control.

Mana Control Benefit

Training in Elemental Mana Control (EMC) increases the chance for the reversion to activate by 1% from a base of 10% for every 20 skill bonus. The maximum achievable activation rate is max 25% with 202 ranks EMC without enhancives, and 27% with +40 EMC from enhancive items.

For a moment, everything you hear and see echoes weirdly around you, but then everything seems normal again.  Your personal temporal reality has been slightly offset from the true flow of time.

 A hit!

Your surroundings melt away as the air around you shivers with a large flux of mana. Abruptly, time wrenches violently to give you a second chance. This time, you're better prepared.
