  • This skill can last up to 100 seconds by maintaining energy through Ancient Echo, or Replenishing Despair with enough healing power.
    • After those 100 seconds, the skill animation stops and projectiles are no longer blocked, but the energy drain persists until the revenant collapses the barrier.
  • As with all other projectile destruction AoE skills, projectiles are destroyed when colliding with the skill. Including getting instantly destroyed if fired from inside the skill.
  • Has no cast time, so can be activated while other tablet skills are in use.
