Ravencards | Shadow

With quiet and fast movements, Shadow appeared behind you and you didn't even notice. Imagine what the Shadow Ravencards have to offer to help players to defeat their opponents in the darkness. Take peek at some of their effects below!

The rarity of the Ravencard directly influences its impact in-game, as the different numbers (%) present in the Ravencards' effects below relate to the different rarities: Grand / Rare / Arcane / Heroic / Mythic / Legendary!  

Please note that the values of the Ravencards' effects are far from final. All cards are undergoing consistent and frequent balancing changes up until, during and post Beta.

Brotherhood Swordsman ー Quick Slash

Quick Slash now deals 5% / 6% / 7% / 8% / 9% / 10% more damage. If used from behind the target, Quick Slash deals 5% / 6% / 7% / 8% / 9% / 10% bonus damage.

Although lightly armed, they’re exceptionally maneuverable, quickly identifying their opponents’ weak spots to throw them off balance, all the while dodging any incoming attacks. They say that death by a thousand cuts means a slow, painful demise. Well, the Swordsman may not need so many strikes, but they will deliver a slow death regardless.

Hobgoblin ー Shadowstrike

Shadowstrike no longer causes the target to bleed, however Aether Bonus damage is increased by 50% / 60% / 70% / 80% / 90% / 100%.

These lightly armed Goblinoids are driven by their base desires of greed and survival. With a knack for trickery and thieving, you can always count on the Hobgoblin to betray others to save themselves, and rob them too, if they get the chance.

Elf Assassin ー Coup de Grace

Coup De Grace’s Crit chance is 25% / 30% / 35% / 40% / 45% / 50% higher than your current Crit chance.

Although the Elves prefer to use diplomacy in defense of their woodland home, it does not mean they will not go on the offensive. Graceful, yet deadly, the Elf Assassins are the tools that are employed when talks fail and war is undesirable…

Toadstool Warrior ー Venomous Weapons

While Venomous Weapons is active, basic attacks apply a stack of poison that deals 1% / 1.2% / 1.4% / 1.6% / 1.8% / 2% Weapon Damage every 2 seconds for a total of 8 seconds. New stacks reset the duration of the debuff. 

Before reaching maturity, these creatures retreat into the depths of the forest. There, they undergo a transformation, growing a tough buckler-like appendage. Toadstool Warriors must then seek a rare Irontree to fashion a sword from its branches. This weapon is then coated with deadly toxins that turn even the smallest cut into a fatal wound.

Skorn Acolyte ー Sinister Plot

Every 25 Aether spent while Sinister Plot is active increases your critical chance by 1% / 1.5% / 2% / 2.5% / 3% / 3.5% for the duration of Sinister Plot.

Sometimes, scared villagers and even rugged veterans whisper about the “Shadow Demons” guarding the Chapel grounds. Armed with sharp daggers and a wide range of subtle tricks, they prefer to strike from the shadows, able to perform quick dashes to surprise their victims and disappear in the blink of an eye.

Brotherhood Tracker ー Crippling Dagger

Crippling Dagger marks the target, the marked target will receive 5% / 6% / 7% / 8% / 9% / 10% additional damage from you for 10 seconds.

The Brotherhood takes in all outcasts who prove themselves, but for every exiled noble there are a dozen killers, and the cruelest of them become trackers. Their brutal tactics guarantee that their prey will undergo the most painful and slowest death possible. Worse still, they appear to experience sadistic glee from bleeding their foes dry.
