Caution: the organism has been known to develop consciousness. In these cases, immediate termination is recommended. Read Lore

“Discovered amid the outer-reef scrap fields, the bio-matter is a novel sentience dependent upon neural-symbiosis with a host organism. It seeks to link to the synaptic patterns of the closest organism, living or synthetic, to form an unbreakable bond. We theorize that this bond is a form of primordial ‘love'—an emotional connection meant to compel the bio-matter to view its host as ‘family.' The host comes to regard the bio-matter as an indispensable tool. The science is inexact, but what is known is that the bio-matter becomes aggressively protective once linked to a worthy host, forming an organic shell that can amplify the host's own strength when immediate threats are detected. —Self-authored report broadcast on covert frequencies

I almost always have these on if I'm using one of the melee-focused trees. Wormgod's Caress may edge it out for total damage, but this one retains its buff longer, is easier to proc, starts at 3x melee, increases your melee range, and buffs your super damage by 50%. Code of the Devastator does insane damage with both this and Roaring Flames on, just sometimes you'll punch a mob when you wanted to throw your hammer.
