  • This skill cannot be used on monsters.
  • Can be used on Players while they are in a Manhole
  • Cannot use any skills or items while you are in Shadow Form.
  • Shadow form is canceled if the range between player and target is greater than 10 cells.
  • Cannot be dispelled, therefore can only removal methods are: target move out of range, insufficient SP upkeep, exceed the hit count, a detecting skill is used and/or duration ends.
  • If you receive damage, and pass it onto another character that has Shield Reflect or reflect gear, if you are in melee range of them, some damage will be reflected back to you.
  • If you are using Shadow Form on someone that has Defending Aura, any ranged damage used on you WILL be reduced by defending aura. Thus, the shadow formed target will receive less damage.
  • If you are Shadow Forming a player who is protected by Sacrifice, it will bypass Sacrifice and hit them, instead of the Crusader/Paladin/Royal Guard.
  • If you have a status ailment, ie, Burning, it will bypass your Shadow Form and continue to hit you.
  • You can be immobilized by skills like Warg Bite while in Shadow Form.
    • Avoid such scenarios as you cannot move, use skills, or items until Shadow Form ends.
