The most powerful reavers have reached an ascended philosophy on the subject of destruction. To them, it is no longer about the strength of their arm or the sharpness of their blade. It is not even about knowing when or where to strike. The will to destroy comes from within, from the dark energy that throbs in the heart of every reaver, and needs only to be let out. By drawing upon this power, the ascended reaver can use his or her skills to strike blows that shatter shields and rend flesh while using a weapon as seemingly ineffective as a broken stick.
