Interface Slot Abilities

  • Cognitive Interface: This interface tree adds a chance to confuse targets of your attacks for approximately 2 seconds. The core branch increases the chance to confuse targets, while the radial branch adds a chance for a minor Psionic damage over time (DoT) effect.
  • Degenerative Interface: This interface tree adds a chance to debuff a target's maximum HP when you attack. The core branch increases the chance for the HP debuff to occur, while the radial branch adds a chance for a minor Toxic damage over time (DoT) effect.
  • Preemptive Interface: This interface tree adds a chance for your attacks to include an additional Endurance damage over time (DoT) effect. The core branch increases the chance of Endurance drain, while the radial branch adds a chance for an additional moderate Energy damage over time (DoT) effect.
  • Spectral Interface: This interface tree adds a chance to immobilize targets of your attacks for approximately 2 seconds. The core branch increases the chance to immobilize targets, while the radial branch adds a chance for an additional moderate Negative damage over time (DoT) effect.

Judgement Slot Abilities

  • Vorpal Judgement: You teleport and kick all enemies you successfully hit in a cone in front of you for heavy smashing damage. The core branch adds a chance to inflict a lethal DoT on all targets struck. Using the radial branch version of the power grants you a defense bonus during and after the attack due to your quick movement.

Destiny Slot Abilities

  • Incandescent Invocation/Epiphany: This location-targeted utility Destiny power brings Assemble the Team functionality to an entire League and combines that with a potent buff to healing received and a targeted area of effect (AoE) foe Knockback and Stun. Its use creates a small safe zone in which your group can regroup, rebuff, and get back into the fight when it would otherwise wipe. The core tree provides even more amplified healing on all targets. Using the radial tree provides additional utility in stealth radius, perception, and move speed boosts, or even short-term phase shift for your entire league
