Patch Changes
June 28, 2022
  • This skill now grants regeneration instead of alacrity in Legendary Centaur Stance.
July 07, 2020
  • This skill is now available underwater.
February 25, 2020 Competitive content update:
  • Skills and traits that grant the unblockable status now use a unified effect. This effect is intensity stacking, and stacks are lost whenever attacks hit or miss. Single strikes that hit multiple foes only consume 1 stack. Skills that grant the unblockable status for a duration have been updated to use a number of stacks instead.
April 23, 2019
  • Ancient Echo has been added to the game.
  • This new baseline revenant skill grants the revenant 25 energy and a benefit based on the current legend. When not using herald or renegade elite specializations, this skill will be available in the second slot of the profession mechanic bar.
