Overview

ParagonMarket ArchetypeEpic Warshade.png

Umbral Blast is the primary power set for Warshades.

"Masters of the void, Warshades can manipulate dark energy, gravity and matter to blast and dominate their foes. The gravimetric nature of most Umbral Blast powers often slows the targets attack and movement speed."

UmbralBlast DarkExtraction.png Dark Extraction

Defeated foes are ripe for the picking. A Warshade can extract the essence from a defeated villain and infuse it with Nictus energy. The extracted energy is an echo of the target’s life force, and although it is not sentient, the infused Nictus energy does give it a rudimentary spark of life. Eventually, the extracted entity will fade away into nothingness.

UmbralBlast DarkNova.png Dark Nova

Kheldians are master of energy and matter. A Warshade can transform into a flying energy beast known as a Dark Nova. When you choose this power, you will have access to 4 very powerful ranged attacks that can only be used while in this form. You will not be able to use any other powers while in Dark Nova form. Dark Nova can fly, has increased chance to hit and improved Endurance Recovery but has no defense.

EdLetter.png Editor's Note:

The 4 powers in Nova form must each be enhanced separately from the form itself. They appear under the Pool Powers section, under Inherent.
