Notes[edit]

  • Some friendly NPCs are not considered allies by Merciful Intervention, causing the shadowstep to fail.
  • This skill can be used in WvW to shadowstep to Supply Depots.
  • You will always end up directly on top of the ally you shadowstep to, regardless of the relative position you chose.
  • The heal is equal to (40 + Level^2 * 0.36 + Healing Power * 1.1).
  • Outgoing healing modifiers affect the revive amount.
