Each seal grants him a 20% energy recharge bonus. On a long press, Razor will produce an electrical explosion, causing area Electro damage.

With his elemental rampage, Razor summons a wolf that deals Electro damage and converts all seals into elemental energy. The wolf fights with Razor for 15 seconds. From then on, it will launch Electro attacks when Razor performs a normal attack, increasing its attack speed, Electro resistance, Interrupt resistance and making it immune to Electro damage. However, Razor can no longer make a charged attack. The wolf disappears if Razor leaves the battlefield, but the remaining time is converted into elemental energy (up to 10 points).
