Curses a target enemy unit, causing it to have a 33% chance to miss on an attack. Lasts 30 seconds.
Duration (Hero) Cooldown
30 (15) sec. 8 sec.


Lie in wait for enemies without attacking (Will respond to attacks).
Units will hold position and hold their fire, so when they are Shadowmelding, they will not break their own invisibility.
It's very handy for running away from a battle. The Hide ability is disabled during the day.
Requires 1.5 seconds to Fade.
