Tips and tactics
- Shadowfury is useful for kiting.
- Shadowfury's short cooldown allows it to be used frequently, either to interrupt critical casts, or simply to reduce incoming damage and escape attackers. By using Shadowfury on cooldown, it is possible to keep opponents stunned 15% of the time.
