      This charm is hot garbage. 3 extra Soul per hit when you need 33 for a single cast. This gives an extra cast for every 11 hits, when it takes 9 hits to completely fill your Soul meter anyways. Complete joke when it has the same cost as Long Nail.

        One of the best charms in the game. Covers so many bases and makes up for the pathetic amount of SOUL you get without it.
