      Please add the Shiftling Skills again! You just removed them.

      I wanted to see at Youtube what these do.
      But I do not remember the name anymore, since you deleted the so fast.

        Hi, anon who updated the page multiple times in the last hour here. Apologies for all the revisions, it's my first time adding something, and thus I struggled a bit with it. Have learnt my lesson, will let the people who know what they're doing handle it in future.

          Boss of new DLC mission 1 has at least one new Switchglaive skill. Found Arc of Chaos, very fun to play with.

              Can confirm that the 2nd dlc’s final boss ( the first form) drops an onmyo skill and the boss for the side mission ‘the dragon’s kin’ drops 2 skills
              1 for ninjutsu and another for both the sword an the fists. The sword/fist skill is the exact same for both weapons and wil both be obtained from the same drop.

                  it seems these skills are in the same item pool as the smithing text, so using the hunter blessing should boost the drop rate the same it does for the texts
