UsageEdit

Grants the Assassin partial immunity to curses and increased resistances to elemental attacks. The Curse duration decrease also affects shrines, to avoid this use Burst of Speed before using a shrine, then reapply Fade.

Fade and Burst of Speed do not stack. Casting one will override the other.

Fade has a hidden bonus to Physical Resistance. Being hidden, it doesn't display on your character or on the skill. The total physical resistance on your character is capped at 50%.

Given its diminishing returns per point, it is not advisable to max out Fade, nor can it be a complete substitution for equipment with resistances. The hidden bonus to Physical resistance, though, does not suffer from diminishing returns.

Characters of other classes can obtain Fade from certain items - for example, Treachery Rune Word.

HistoryEdit

An Assassin can will her physical being to shift partially into the astral planes. As her body becomes less substantial, she becomes less susceptible to the effects of elemental attacks and magical curses.
