Everyone knows how to die. Some just need a little nudge to get them started.

The Trickster is an Ascendancy class for Shadows.

Overview

The Trickster is a versatile hybrid class that mixes high speed, maneuverability, and slippery defenses. He is well-suited for damage over time builds with his strong recovery from Patient Reaper and further damage over time specialization like poison via Prolonged Pain. The Trickster also gains added layers of defense to his evasion and energy shield from Ghost Dance and Escape Artist, rewarding playstyles that focus on taking hits periodically. Furthermore he is able to generate and enhance power and frenzy charges either from killing enemies or channelling an ability with Swift Killer. He can also choose to specialize in strong mana-based bonuses from Weave the Arcane or a chance to gain large amounts of extra chaos damage via Harness the Void.
