Question about "steal" spells

I'm a fire wizard and thus have the Steal Ward spell. I understand what it does, but I'm wondering what exactly happens when you cast a steal ward against some who just cast an elemental blade. Does it steal all of the blades or just one of them? If one, which one?

I tried to test this in the practice pvp, but it's kinda hard convincing people (even in practice), to cast an elemental blade because I want to try to steal it.

I assumed it would steal all, but I believe I saw an ice wizard do a Steal Ward spell against a Legend Shield and it only took the Myth part of that shield.

Re: Question about "steal" spells
It will steal the very last blade that was put out.

If someone puts up elemental blades, they go in the order fire, ice, and storm. You would steal the storm blade first, then ice, and finally fire.

If they put other blades up,then you steal the last blade put up.

Re: Question about "steal" spells
so it does treat them as individual blades even though they're cast with a single spell. Thank you very much for clarifying.

Re: Question about "steal" spells
I am a Grandmaster Fire Wizard and use this spell all the time. No offense to WizardofWorI but that order is backward. The order of Elemental Blades is Fire, Ice, Storm. So the blade that you are wanting to steal is fire and that is the one that is on the outside available to steal. Then the ice and then the storm. This is also true when considering Treasure Elemental Blades. Graphically, the treasure blades show up as Ice, Fire, Storm. But that is not what the icons represent. The first blade is still a fire blade and NOT an ice blade (even thought the game is displaying an ice blade). So if you see blades go up that are Fire, Ice, Storm, then you know you are dealing with REGULAR Elementals but if you see blades go up that are Ice, Fire, Storm then you know you are dealing with Treasure Elementals. Either way the fire blade is first so steal it before they can use it.

Re: Question about "steal" spells
Zigmon, thanks for responding. You are correct, I was able to confirm this last night. I cast a steal ward against an elemental blade and I got the fire blade. Didn't know about the different in display on the elemental vs treasure blades. Good info.
