  • 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.


  • Can be cast with no enemy targeted; this way, it will function as a stun break with no shadowstep (and will not activate shadowstep traits, like Shadow Savior).
