Notes[edit]

  • Does not require a target in order to be cast.
  • You teleport to a random nearby location and gain stealth for 3 seconds upon using the skill.
  • The clone will attack with Mind Blast and inflict 5 seconds of confusion.
  • You can revive this clone; if restored to full health, it will briefly stand and then return to the downed state, begin losing health again and continue using Mind Blast.
  • Is not affected by the boons or longer stealth from Prismatic Understanding.
