Piercing Shadow

Garona Halforcen TCG2.jpg

Garona teleports to a location and if an enemy is within melee range, critically hits. If the enemy was out of combat, it deals additional damage.

  • Crit: 100% 150% 200%.
  • Bonus: 2X, 3X, 4X.
  • Damage: X, Y, Z.

Blinding Shadows

Garona wills inky black shadows around her enemies, blinding enemies in a small radius and allowing her to use Piercing Shadow for max damage. Blinded enemies cannot attack and take additional damage.

  • Blind AOE: 5m.
  • Duration: 3sec, 5sec, 6sec.
  • Damage Bonus: 150%, 200%, 250%.


Garona naturally blends into shadows making her difficult for enemies outside a certain range to see and allowing her to bypass patrols. Dazed or stunned enemies will lose track of Garona.

  • Range: 8m, 6m, 3m.

Shadow Born

Garona disappears into shadows and can momentarily reappear to Strike by right clicking enemies up to X times within Y seconds. Garona appears on her last Shadow Strike or her last location when the timer expires.

  • Strikes: 3, 4, 5.
  • Time: 4, 6, 8 seconds.
