— In-game description
- Ineptitude — Interrupting a foe inflicts blind, and blinding a foe inflicts confusion. This trait can only activate on enemies with defiance bars once per interval.
- Prismatic Understanding — Increased stealth duration from mesmer skills. Gain random boons while you are in stealth.
- The Pledge — Reduces recharge on torch skills. Flame bursts from torch skills inflict additional burning.
- Escape Artist — Create a clone when you gain stealth.
- The blind effect has a radius of 120.
- Blast finisher occurs at the end of the stealth, when the burning is applied.
- As with all other mesmer skills that say they apply stealth, this skill does not actually provide Stealth. It provides Hide in Shadows, an effect with the same functionality as stealth. Hide in Shadows does not stack with stealth.

- There is a Christopher Nolan film entitled The Prestige, which refers to the third step of a magic trick: after the Pledge (i.e. the setup) and the Turn (i.e. rendering the ordinary into the extraordinary), the trick ends in the Prestige (i.e. returning things to normal). For example, showing an ordinary person in an ordinary box, making them disappear, and then reappear in a cloud of smoke.
