Signet of Capture

Notes[edit]

  • The blindness is applied to foes adjacent to the target rather than the user's initial location.
  • This skill is mechanically the same as a shadow step.
  • This skill is the fastest recharging shadow step skill that moves the user.
  • This skill (and its PvP version) is the only shadow step skill able to move the user to any target regardless of whether the target is a foe or ally.

Trivia[edit]

Gw2logo.png The Guild Wars 2 Wiki also has an article on Ride the Lightning.
  • This skill is a reference to the album and/or song by Metallica. The band chose that name to describe the electric chair, a method of execution wherein the condemned is strapped to a wooden chair and electrocuted.
