  • Traversing Dusk Traversing Dusk — Heal allies in the area around you when you shadowstep. Gain shadow force for each ally in the radius. Wells grant resistance on their initial impact.


  • As a shadowstep, it can only send the player to locations they could reach without having to jump.
  • Jumping after the shot has been fired but before it has landed, when timed correctly, can fire the shot over small terrain providing you have line of sight on the opposite end of the terrain.
  • If the player is downed while the projectile is in flight, they will still shadowstep when it reaches the target area.
  • Aiming under a platform thin enough will shadow step the player on top of the platform instead of under it.
  • A dodge immediately following Infiltrator's Arrow will be performed in-place, as if the player was immobilized.
  • If used right before entering Siege Golem, the golem will teleport with the arrow.
