  • This skill gets cancelled if the original target enters stealth and doesn't get revealed between hits.
  • Will not activate if your target moves out of range before the first hit.
  • This skill will stop if the target is on uneven ground (such as a semi-steep hill) or close to a wall. Evasion will continue for the remaining time.
  • Sometimes the cast has longer delay when used affected by immobile or on immobile targets like Entangle effect.
  • The shadowstep range between the multiple hits is very long, and you will continue to teleport to the target foe even if, for example, a Mesmer uses a portal at max range during your attack.
  • This skill hits random targets 450 range from your original target, first and final strikes are always to the targeted opponent.
  • While the tooltip has not been updated, this skill deals 10% more damage in PvE and WvW[verification requested]:  Damage.png Damage: 230 (0.6272)?
Using this skill while near a wall may cause the player to become stuck in the wall. Waypoint or use the "/stuck" command to escape.
