A student's manuscript.
Turns the next three attacks into short-ranged paper flurry attacks that deal AoE damage when used. These attacks will also cause slight knockback, enough to keep most melee enemies at bay for a moment. Attacks will reflect from furniture, but will freely bypass swirler's, virtuoso's and hovercrab's shields.
Only starts recharging once you have used up all three attacks.
Picking up another active item before the three charges have been expended may cause the game to bug and not reload your basic attack, possibly leaving you defenseless in a room full of enemies. To prevent this, simply be sure to fire off a few shots before taking a new active item.
