Notes[edit]

For the purposes of confusion, this counts as two separate skills.
  • The shadowstep only occurs if the projectile hits the target.
  • Only the projectile portion is unblockable.
  • Estimated coefficient with shadow shot and dagger hitting.
  • The Blind will occur before the shadowstep, therefore marks or traps will miss if you arrive on them after the shadowstep.
  • The projectile does roughly 25% of the total damage.
