Saving Throw Fortitude half (see text)
A jaded blade stabs upward from under the target, curving to strike their defense, dealing focus sword damage plus an additional 1d6 damage per two sword saint levels. A successful Fortitude save halves this damage. Failing the save gives breaks the target’s shield, giving it the broken condition, until repaired. If the target does not possess a breakable shield, then this ability has no effect except for damage.
Practiced: This sword skill with practice increases the DC by 2.
Perfected: This sword skill when perfected, lowers the AC of the shield by 2. The shield’s AC cannot be lower than 0.
