With a shield it's limited to this fighting style, as only through Holmgang does Large Shield get Crushing Blow. I've modified the requirements to reflect this better.

I'm a little uncertain if I am doing this right. Please check the above.

It depends on the weapon, but here is what I came up with (Sweeping Strike is an insanely cheap maneuver for what it does). The key is you have to apply Arcane Strike first to the spell then combine the total of that with another BASE maneuver for the Advanced Maneuver.

Elemental Sweeping Arcane Strike (Speed X Weapon, X>3)
Speed with just Arcane Strike: X (Rec: 4, Str: +2)
Speed of Advanced Maneuver: X (Rec: 5, Str: +2)

Mighty Chaos Arcane Strike (Speed X Weapon, X < 7)
Speed with just Arcane Strike: 6 (Rec: X, Str: +2)
Speed of Advanced Maneuver: 6 (Rec: X+1, Str: +2)

First Question: Pardon my math ineptitude, but I don't understand your equation. So if I am using a Long Spear (A speed 6 weapon), what do the final numbers shake out to.

Second Question: Enemy of My Enemy is pretty powerful on its own. So, once adjusted correctly and legally, is MIGHTY CHAOS too mighty for the cost? I ask because I don't think Pedro had this combination in mind when writing Arcane Strike.

Elemental Sweeping Arcane Strike (Speed 6 Weapon)
Speed with just Arcane Strike: 6 (Rec: 4, Str: +2)
- The Arcane Strike Speed is the greater of the Weapon (6) or Spell (4) and the Recovery is the lesser of the two. Strain is that of the spell.
Speed of Sweeping Strikes Advanced Maneuver: 6 (Rec: 5, Str: +2)
- The Adv. Maneuver Speed (Recovery) uses the Slower Speed+Recovery between the two base maneuvers (with it's recovery) and adds on the Faster Maneuver's Speed as additional Recovery. Therefore the 1 (+2) of Sweeping Strike is the faster, so the speed 1 adds to the Recovery of the Arcane Strike, giving the above numbers.

Mighty Chaos Arcane Strike (Speed 6)
Speed with just Arcane Strike: 6 (Rec: 6, Str: +2)
Speed of Advanced Maneuver: 6 (Rec: 7, Str: +2)


There isn't a problem with Arcane Strike. The problem is that Sweeping Strike is a VERY VERY powerful 'must have' ability that is also VERY cheap [Speed: 1 (2)]. Combining it with anything is only going to up the Recovery by 1 since it's speed is pretty low (3 total when comparing to another maneuver).
