Hey hey! I’m going to be working on a root with some DOT like aspects to it.
I was thinking of something of a cross between the Swords of Revealing Light card from the Anime/Game Yu-Gi-Oh, and a couple of the AOE abilities from the Red Mage in Final Fantasy XIV.
The idea is the swords form a cage around you, and then start to pierce you over time.
I roughed in the main basis of the idea, and now I’m going to have a look at some more reference before I come back to it!
