Shadow Flare is a Finesse ability with two-part attack. Attack 1 staggers targets a few meters in front of you and deals Physical Damage. Tap the ability again and a number of blade projectiles each deal Piercing Damage and Bleeding Damage.
Works well over an area or when fighting large enemies up close.
There are 5 levels to this ability. Two more may be unlocked via ability bonuses.

- Shadow Flare works similar to Mark of Flame, in that both have a weaker first attack, followed by a destructive second attack.
- More than one knife can hit a target. If the player gets close enough to a single large foe, incredible amounts of damage can be dealt.
- The Shadow Flare is a useful mana saver technique; it bleeds and pierces the enemy at a low cost of mana, useful when you're running low on it.
