Suggested Opener

While targeting the enemy:

  • x4
  • x2
  • with 5 Stacks of
  • ally-targeted


Might - AoE around the Spectre when striking an enemy with . Cast twice every time you cast .

Ally-targeted skills apply their effects in a small 240 Radius around your target, with 50% duration; consider each skill as applying only half the listed duration.

Use custom keybinds for Set Personal Target and Take Personal Target for an ally you know will remain close to group (doing no fight mechanics).

  • Protection - Between each cast of , spend Initiative on roughly 3 casts of ally-targeted.
  • Burst Heal - (gap closer). Flips over to...
    • Barrier - provides redundant boons, but decent barrier.

ABC: Always Be Casting! Your Scepter auto-attack grants free Barrier when targeting allies!

Shadow Shroud

Shadow Shroud absorbs damage like normal health, so you can get kicked out in high pressure encounters.

  • Your Initiative and Utility skills are inaccessible when you !
  • The beneficial effects of all skills are granted to you, and to allies in your subgroup around your Shrouded Ally.
    • When you , one ally within 1,200 range becomes your Shrouded Ally.
    • Cast on an ally to designate them before the fight starts! You can also target a player before using to temporarily tether to them (use your Take Personal Target!). Selection is otherwise random within your subgroup.
    • Being 1,200 units away from your ally will break your active tether during , and end prioritization from .
  • Every Shadow Shroud skill grants Alacrity on cast, and most grant Healing and an extra effect if you hit an enemy:
    • - Might
    • - Condition Cleanse
    • - Barrier
    • and are your primary Alacrity sources thanks to their short cast times and Cooldown.
  • When you , you convert any remaining Shadow Force into Healing/Barrier via trait.

will Stealth your allies, applying Protection and Barrier, but interfering with your allies' hands-off Auto Attacking. This is extremely disruptive for Deadeye, so always make sure they are in the other subgroup.

After entering Stealth, cast on an ally to grant Regeneration. This will Reveal you!

The strike damage from , , , and can Reveal you prematurely when they strike an enemy. If any of these skills are about to do so, adjust when you cast .

Your other Wells will never Reveal you, even when affecting enemies!

If you need another utility skill and don't need condition cleanse, swap out . Otherwise, swap out (cover the missing Protection and Regeneration with and ).

  • immediate group Condition Cleanse and Endurance restore
  • personal shadowstep for mobility, and emergency healing/Shadow Force (use on top of allies)
  • for subgroup mobility
  • projectile destruction and Smoke Field for blasting Stealth
