Signet of Capture:


  • This is one of the few skills that can remove enchantments that prevent spell targeting, for example, Spell Breaker and Obsidian Flesh.
  • This skill's enchantment loss aspect makes it much more difficult to defend against, and as a Dual Attack, the target is much more likely to have been enchanted after taking the initial damage from prior attacks.
  • As a Dual Attack, Shattering Assault will remove two enchantments from your foe, one for each attack that hits.
  • The damage dealt by this skill is not in addition to the standard dagger damage, it replaces the weapon damage (see skill description: no plus sign '+' in front of the number), thus the damage from this skill is not affected by things such as weapon customization, though is affected by armor.
  • This is the only elite Dual Attack in the game.
  • Shattering Assault removes enchantments before it does damage, so enchantments like Protective Spirit, Spirit Bond, and Reversal of Fortune will be removed before their effects trigger.
