- This article is about the mechanic shadow step. For the skill of the same name, see Shadowstep.
Shadowstepping is a mechanic that allows the user to move instantly from one place to another. Shadowstep skills and traits are unique to the thief, although some skills such as Blink function similarly. Unlike teleporting, shadowstepping allows the player to move vertically as long the position can be reached normally by moving on the ground without jumping. Trying to shadowstep up or through obstacles or across gaps will cause you to shadowstep to the edge in general.
