You cannot stealth

— In-game description

Revealed is an effect applied when stealth is broken by a player either striking a target with power damage or exiting a Shadow Refuge circle prematurely. Various skills, listed below, apply revealed on enemy players in WvW and PvP.

When applied as a result of breaking stealth, the effect lasts 3 seconds in PvE and WvW and 4 seconds in Structured PvP. An "Immune" message pops up if an attempt to stealth is made during that time. This effect prevents people from repeatedly attacking and then using stealth before the enemy can respond. When this effect is applied to a target that is in stealth, it will end the stealth effect, rendering the target visible immediately.

Allowing stealth to end normally without attacking will not apply the Revealed effect.

Players under the effect of Revealed have a pair of shining feline-like eyes above their heads.
