Mist blades, also known as Fana weapons, have scripts attached with a locked and an unlocked version. These were initially teased through the Ebon Gate prize hopper and then released with Duskruin Arena, where they are sold in the shop A Mist Opportunity. When held, they alter a character's unique feature line. Each tier unlocks one of the following features and fully unlocked weapons will randomize between the three.

Inky black threads slither just beneath the surface of his skin, shifting his flesh with disturbing, coiling movements.

His/her face appears quite peaked, and his/her skin is streaked with an array of raised veins that seem to pulse with a slow, steady rhythm.

Large crimson-edged sores cover his/her cheeks, and the flesh around his/her eyes appears bruised and swollen.

Analyze

You carefully analyze your frosted glaes claidhmore and sense that there are some alteration restrictions.  Your claidhmore must be some kind of BLADED weapon. (No runestaves or bows, etc.)  SHOWS are fine to add but bear in mind the misty and shadowy nature of the weapon, evident in messaging.  The item description should not refer to the mist.  Original concept by Fana.

This item is fully unlocked.

You can turn the ambient messaging ON/OFF by PRODding your weapon.

Verbs: CLEAN, CLENCH, GET, DROP, LICK, POINT (player or no target), PROD, RAISE, RUB, STARE, and WAVE.  Messaging has a higher chance to fire, and there are three possible unique feature changes.

Tier 1 DROP/PUT As you prepare to drop your frosted glaes claidhmore, jet black tendrils begin to snake and coil around the claidhmore's hilt, slithering upward. Mere seconds before they twine around your wrist, you release your grip on the claidhmore and the tendrils retreat.

A few drops of blood dribble from her tongue and onto the claidhmore's blade as a thin black tendril coils from the claidhmore into her mouth.
