Shadow damage

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Shadow damage is a damage type caused by many necromancer skills.


Unlike chaos and dark damage, shadow damage ignores armor and character level. That is, a skill that says it deals 50 shadow damage to a foe will deal exactly 50 damage, regardless of armor rating, although it is still modified by skills which affect all damage, such as Protective Spirit, Frenzy and Shielding Hands.


  • As with typeless damage, there are no known effects which interact specifically with shadow damage.
