— In-game description


  • Makes the caster invulnerable while channeling this skill, granting the effect Renewed Focus.png Renewed Focus for the duration. Dodging or weapon swapping while channeling this skill will cancel the invulnerability and the Virtues skills will not be recharged.
  • The Virtues skills are recharged a little before invulnerability ends, so it's possible to use the instant-cast variants during the cast time of this skill and still reset their recharge.
  • For Firebrand icon small.pngFirebrand, casting this skill will restore all pages and remove the effects Dormant Justice.png Dormant Justice, Dormant Resolve.png Dormant Resolve, and Dormant Courage.png Dormant Courage.
