Usage Strategies

  • Great for completing any non-escort quest including main storyline.
  • Once a player has 100% invisibility, they may use any Combat Art with immunity (see note about summons in "Cons").
  • Once a player has 100% invisibility, stealth cannot be broken by the use of any ranged weapons, and will continue to operate.

Pros and Cons


  • At level 25 a player will have 100% invisibility if Creep and Fade modifications are chosen.
  • Allows completion of any non-escort quest easily
  • Allows a player to open boss chests without having to engage the boss


  • While Shadow Veil is active, any quest escort will receive all aggro from enemies.
  • If a players uses Rallied Souls or Nether Allegiance, any damage that a player's summoned creature suffers from an enemy AoE spell or via reflected damage, will also damage the player. This also includes any quest NPC's a player is escorting.
