  • 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 alacrity on their initial impact.
  • Shadestep ShadestepSiphon now grants you barrier when targeting enemies, and it revives allies when targeting them. Shadowstepping breaks your barrier and grants it to nearby allies, proportional to the number of allies affected.


  • 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).
