Melee Mastery

None
Difference from Claw Mastery (LoD)
Works with any melee weapons.
Pros
Cons

Cloak of Shadows

Required Level
1
Prerequisites
None
Difference from the LoD version
Darkens the screen no longer. (The vapor graphics is also shown above the caster to indicate the duration.) Duration is capped to make recasting easy. Less mana cost. Works like Shout and other armor spells for the defense part (gives skill_armor_percent, not item_armor_percent).
Pros
Very effective to disable ranged attackers.
Cons
Can't be recast until the duration expires, which is annoying especially when you are proceeding fast.

Weapon Block

Required Level

Prerequisites
None
Difference from the LoD version
Pros
Also blocks some elemental missiles. (This is a less known feature of LoD itself.)
Cons
Note
Increased Chance to Block doesn't work but Faster Block works for Weapon Block.

Psychic Slash

Required Level

Prerequisites

Difference from Psychic Hammer (LoD)
Pros
Cons
Notes
this skill will automatically select a target from about 1/4 of the screen area if you right click with no target or have it on left click and try to use a tp, wp, move, or open chests/pick up items. This feature can be both a pro and a con. In the beginning it's a hindrance to normal things. When you get the hang of it, catching all those fast moving tiny monsters is easy.

Shadow Master

Required Level
24
Prerequisites
Command Mastery (6), Shadow Warrior (12)
Difference from the LoD version
Spawned with a Cap, War Hat or Hood. You can summon two Shadow Masters by the synergy.
Pros
Fights autonomously and uses various skills. Benefit from the equipment (Aura when equipped, for example.)
Cons
You can't control the skills she uses. Her Mind Blast may be annoying, for example. charging up pheonix strike then setting traps till the charges expire or scattering a tight pack with mind blast stuning half of them making it take twice as long to kill then.
Notes
Generated with random equipment. The base Defense and Attack Rating are determined by the armor and Dexterity. The base Damage is determined by the weapon and Strength.
Please also see Shadow Master's Equipment and Life Regeneration.
Known Issues
The skill icon shows slightly less Equipment Level. Please see the skill panel for the correct values. The skill panel doesn't show the correct value either while the slvl is zero.
Shadow Master sometimes fails to catch up with you and disappears. This often occurs when you have a lot of FRW and use BoS.
