Info[edit | edit source]

Role:  
Melee
5
Carry
4
Lore:  
Only whispered of by those who dare to speak its name aloud. A blade forged by the daemons themselves in the pits of the abyss and tempered in the still-beating hearts of their enemies. Its tainted magic ensured that no one slain by the blade will ever find refuge in the light of Sol or the branches of the Tree of Life. Instead they will find themselves forever bound within its cold metal prison and giving shape to its infernal form. It is the Shadowblade, drinker of souls.

Range: 1600
Mana Cost: 30
Cooldown: 30 (5) seconds

30/50/70% splash damage in a 225 radius.

40/60/80% of your Intelligence and restore your Mana equal to that amount.

 
Notes
  • Essence Shift buff is not removed on death.
  • The amount of stat gained accounts for all attribute modifiers at the time it was applied, including status effects and items held at the time, even if they were refunded afterwards.
  • If you target yourself without any form active, you will always copy your Agility, even if your primary attribute was changed.
  • Does not interrupt actions on cast.
  • With a Staff of the Master.jpg Staff of the Master, bonus effects match your primary attribute, not Shadowblade's forms.
  • With a Staff of the Master.jpg Staff of the Master, as Strength, Splash damage is centered around the target instead of dealing damage in front of you, and works with both Melee and Ranged attacks.
  • With a Staff of the Master.jpg Staff of the Master, as Intelligence, you will always restore Mana equal to 40/60/80% of your Intelligence on attack, even if the enemy had less Mana than that amount.
