Seeing people get instantly gibbed by builds centered around this sword is still increasingly frustrating to watch.

I'd suggest making the Vydel cast from Tarnada be a spell seperate from an Evoker's Vydel, that way it does not gain Charge Mind/Greaper and Talvyd bonuses, that'd be the best solution to this sword's biggest problem.

Just get the damage capped at 250 if the effect comes from Tarnada.

Disregard this. This thing is an absurd. You need to have a very, very specific setup to counter it. And when this is paired with stuff like Oracles, who can't miss a basic hit like ever, it really becomes a case of "25% chance to end the fight in one sidecut". This can get petty as hell, because after the tornado, you take a butt-load damage and get knocked down.

Can Silence stop the Vydel effect from Tarnada, at the very least?

The way Tarnada is right now pigeonholes you into going Kensei/Evoker with an offhand tome, which just leads to the ridiculous combination of Charge Mind and attack until you trigger the free Vydel.

So I think it would be best if Tarnada's effect was it's own thing that can't get bonuses like Charge Mind but on the flipside counts the Tarnada as a valid casting tool for the Tarnada's spell so you don't need a Tome for the effect to be worthwhile.

I think this is fair.

I've changed it to where you don't get the Charge Mind or Greaper boost if you are casting it from Tarnada.

EDIT: Tarnada is also a casting tool specifically for Vydel so you don't need a tome anymore.
