I Just started this class on the account of me thinking how cool it would be to have a class similar to the Soulknife. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Echoing Puppetter (talk • contribs) 19:35, 7 June 2008 (MDT). Please sign your posts!
 Science Note
If the Blade is made of sound wouldn't it logically still do damage to deafened creatures because sound is only vibrations traveling through a medium. Also in a vacuum your blade would be destroyed due to an absence of a medium. D.M.DemonicPanda 15:05, March 8 2009
I'm going to stick with the description as written.
- Reasoning: A Silence spell cancels out a Shout spell. Shout deals sonic damage. The Echo Blade also deals sonic damage. If sonic damage was caused by vibrations through a medium, then any effect that deals sonic damage (such as a Shout spell) could still deal damage in a Silence spell, because the sound could still travel through a different medium. This could be shown by putting an guitar amp, bass amp, whatever amp, in the zone of a Silence spell. The amp would make no noise, but would still produce the vibrations through whatever it was set up on.
- There are probably many holes in that, but, ultimatley, the DM should decide what should happen to deaf creatures.
- PS. One of the other reasons is so the Knife cannot continually use his hyper sound against a already deafened opponent. --Morlock Night 09:51, 17 March 2009 (MDT)
- nevermind. You are completly right, and after I took another look at it, I realized that is only there to prevent Hyper Sound spamming. and as an achillies heel, type of thing.--Morlock Night 17:42, 18 March 2009 (MDT)
 wikify template
What's the major malfunction on this page? Aside from some random minor issues, this pages seems quite fine to me, not like all the other stuff I'm looking at that -actually- needs wikification. The only reason I haven't removed the template is because GreenDragon himself put it there. --TheWarforgedArtificer 22:26, 15 July 2009 (MDT)
