Twitchy Nerves is a mutation that trades Focus and Senses for a boost to Reflexes. It is the most popular mutation in the game, and has been for years, thanks to the power of the +2 Reflexes at a relatively minor cost.
This mutation grants:
- +2 Reflexes. Reflexes is an extremely important stat for most builds, making this a powerful buff.
- -1 Senses. This stops Twitchy from being a direct +1 to Whips and Dodge, and penalizes some other skills, but the penalty is minor compared to +2 Reflexes; Senses is much easier to buff.
- -2 Focus. This brings the mutation to -2.5 focus in total, but most players consider this an acceptable trade for the Reflexes, aside from dedicated focus minmax builds.
This mutation adds the following line to a character's description:
