Useless and suicide
Elite Enchantment Spell. For 5...17...20 seconds, all attacks and Projectiles have 50% chance to miss while moving. Otherwise you have 25% chance. You also move 15...31...35% faster.

Elite Stance. For 3...10...12 seconds, your attacks deal shadow damage. But you deal 33...7...0% less damage. Move to critical strikes. You cant critical with nondagger weapon

Sneaky's Suggestion

Losing HP, high recharge requires hig investment in shadow

Shadow Form Shadow Form. 5 Energy 10 Recharge time Elite Stance.For 0...10...12 you move 33% Faster and take 33% less Damage. This stance ends if you XXXX.

my sugestion

not worth a skill slot as it is now but any buff would make it imba so the skills need a full rework

Shadow Form Shadow Form. 5 Energy 8 Recharge time Elite Stance . for 3 seconds you move and attack 66% faster and all your non atack skills are disabled for 5 seconds (fails under 5 Shadow Arts) this would make an elite version of dash with very quick ias but with short duration just enough to hit quick spike chain the recharhge may be abit to low so it could be increased up to 12 the to negative is to put off use with wars for fast godly spikes with dervs and wars and the fail is to make them force to spec atribute points to use this

That would make it rather OP, 66% IaS is huge, i can see Hammer bash-->Falling-->dual-->falling-->dual chains that are faster then BB sins78.20.153.111 13:39, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

The Sins We Die By's Issue

Bad skill mechanic for PvP period.

Change mechanic. Make it a form. Shadow Form Shadow Form. 10 Energy 25 Recharge time 2 Activation time For 25 seconds whenever you are within half the normal spell range of a target and are activating an attack skill you shadow step to target foe. Fails with Critical Strikes 7 or less. This skill is disabled for 60 seconds.

Solution to skin changing issue. 75% Tranparent Char with extra black tint.Or just keep it simple and invert the Ghostly Hero coloration.

  • Fun skill
  • Balanced overall
  • Not uselessly taking up memory
  • Very effective while active
  • Not so useful without an elite for 2/3 of the time. 19:31, 21 May 2009 (UTC)


did you ever use this in pvp?

5Energy 12Recharge time - Elite stance. For 1...4...5 seconds, you move 50% faster and attack 33% faster.
Elite IAS for spikes.
