— In-game description


  • This skill can affect an unlimited number of targets.
  • 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.
    • This skill will not provide Hide in Shadows to players already under the effect of Hide in Shadows.
