The third blade in the sword series.
This is Cadance's Sword, Amore, which means "love". It's design of the blade, hilt and handle are in the form of the Crystal Empire Tower, the placement of the Crystal heart, and the 'dream staircase' (as i call it)
respectively, similar to the real Crystal Empire Tower. Amore uses the magic of the Crystal heart to power its attacks, and when the cheers of hope and love arise among her allies and soldiers, it amplifies the Crystal heart's magic. Cadance's sword is wholly focused on defense and healing.
> Heal - holding the sword straight up will heal the wielder, and pointing it towards allies will heal them. The spell can also occur when her blade is in contact with an ally blade.
> Crystal cage - swinging the sword down a short distance from an opponent will encase them within a crystal cage. crystal is as tough as rock, and requires a great amount of strength and power to shatter a part of it.
> Crystal barrier - swinging the sword pointed across the ground will spring thick crystal walls from the ground to rise up.
> Crystal armor - whipping the blade around the wielder will create a crystal "skin" shell around them, providing a form of body armor that is difficult to destroy, weighs hardly anything, and still allows the warrior to be completely maneuverable.
> Crystal Heart Explosion - raise the sword up skyward, and a tri-beam will shoot up and explode the sky with aurora lights and create a magical sphere that will encompass all allies and create crystal armor on them all, but forcefully push all enemies away and act as a force shield that only lets allies through. the sphere will continue to stay active as long as the sword is held up and it has the magic for it.the words on the sword are Principem amoris et imperium crystállum which means "Princess of love and the crystal empire"
