Patch Changes
July 16, 2019
  • This trait has been reworked and new visual effects have been added. It now attacks at the end of Mirage Cloak rather than the beginning. Additionally, its damage has been increased by 100%, and instead of inflicting bleeding it now removes a boon from up to 5 foes on hit. The mirage gains a copy of any boon removed.
November 07, 2017
  • Fixed the incorrect skill facts to show the actual value of 3 stacks of bleeding for 4 seconds.
September 22, 2017 Path of Fire release:
  • Sand Shards has been added to the game.


  • Gwwlogo.png A Guild Wars skill bears the same name as this skill.
  • This skill's icon is the same as that of the Guild Wars skill Empathy.
