This article is a list of core revenant skills. For additional skills available to revenant's elite specializations, see:

Profession mechanic[edit]

Revenants can channel various legends, which determine their healing, utility and elite skills. Two legends can be equipped at a time, while F1 switches the active one, putting the previous one on a 10 second recharge.

When no elite specialization is equipped, the Ancient Echo (F2) skill grants the revenant 25 energy while in combat, and a benefit based on the current legend. Equipping an elite specializations replaces this skill with another mechanic.
