Class Capabilities

  • Aggro
    • The shadowknight darkness line of snare Spells is an excellent way to get/hold aggro. Chaining the level eleven snare Clinging Darkness, together with a spell from the terror line (i.e. the lvl 33 Terror of Darkness), can be quite an effective aggro technique. Higher level shadowknights get more tools, including the Voice of X line, and the villify AE aggro line.
    • Starting with the level 69 villify, shadowknights gain a series of incredibly powerful AE aggro spells.
  • Pulling
    • Shadowknights receive feign death at level 24, and a series of progressive upgrades. FD combined with the darkness line of snares can in many situations be used to single pull.
