I didn't like Storm Dragon in vanilla Jade Empire. It felt overpowered and useless at the same time. So I reconfigured it completely. It still incapacitates your opponents in my mod, but for substantially shorter periods of time. And leveling up the duration - which is still possible - will do a little bit, but not an awful lot to change that. Additionally it no longer does physical damage of any sort anymore. I repeat: You can no longer harm your opponents with Storm Dragon! Oh, and I've also taken away Storm Dragon's ability to start a Harmonic Combo.
But for all the things I've taken away, I also added something: Storm Dragon has now become the twin brother of Spirit Thief. Just like Spirit Thief allows you to regenerate your Chi and drain that of your opponent, Storm Dragon allows you to regenerate your Focus. It also allows you to drain your opponent's Focus, but - as you probably already know - there's only a single opponent in Jade Empire who has Focus himself. That one special enemy, however, is a lot of fun to fight with Storm Dragon! ;)
When your character runs out of Chi, you automatically switch to Spirit Thief. Likewise you will automatically switch to Storm Dragon, when you run out of Focus.
Energy Style, Drains Focus from enemies Does direct damage in Chi Strike mode only. Storm Dragon's Power Attack and Area Attack can be used to paralyse enemies for a short time. The forms and strikes of Storm Dragon enable the master to call upon the power of lightning to drain his opponent's energy. While this style's attacks don't cause any direct damage, its motions summon forth electricity to course through its victim, forcing them to lose Focus and allowing the Storm Dragon user to regain it. Storm Dragon cannot win a fight on its own, but combined with other styles it can easily change the tide of a difficult battle.
Can be bought from Spear Catches Leaf.
