The shadowmancer is a spell casting, scholar profession which is able to effectively prevent damage to itself by becoming invisible and invincible while at the same time dealing out considerable damage.

Abilities[edit]

Shadowmancers possess Shadow Form, an ability unique to their profession which causes spells cast upon them to fail, and reduces all physical damage by 20% plus an additional 20% for every three levels. Therefore, by level 13, the shadowmancer is effectively immune to damage. This ability comes with a price however. Because this ability makes most of PvE rather easy, a shadowmancer only receives a small portion of experience from all sources.

Skills[edit]

See list of shadowmancer skills.

Special spell types[edit]

  • Splinter Armor - Splinter armor is a boon exclusive to the shadowmancer that deals damage to all foes who attempt to damage the shadowmancer.
  • Shadows - Through use of summoning shadows, the shadowmancer is able to control a small army of minion-like creatures.
