Shadowhunter PvP Awakening Skills
All characters have the choice to pick one of two Awakening abilities to use. These are Ultimate skills that can be used only once in a match in PvP — do not be fooled by the cooldown, as even if the cooldown expires mid-match, your Awakening skill cannot be used a second time, which means that you need to learn how to use that skill efficiently.
Shadowhunter PvP Awakening
All characters have the choice to pick one of two Awakening abilities to use. These are "Ultimate" skills that can be used only once in a match — do not be fooled by their cooldown, as even if the cooldown expires mid-match, they cannot be used a second time.
is Shadowhunter's Awakening skill of choice in PvP. It is a multi-purpose ranged AoE that deals good damage, inflicts Hard crowd control, and generates Identity Gauge.
After a short animation, a wide puddle will appear on the target area which applies a 2-second fear only on the first hit following its appearance. All hits from the Awakening inflict Paralysis, save for the last hit which is a Push.
The Paralysis will not true combo into the Push, so try to use a skill near the end of the Awakening to ensure targets get hit by the final hit.
Ideally, this skill should be used either early or late in the match to allow for two uses ofdue to its gauge gain. In practice, however, this can be very difficult to pull off. Do not greed early or late Awakening usage if it means giving up using it for self-peel in critical situations or to force aggression at an opportune time.
As it applies a Hard crowd control, use this to punish classes after a space dash or during extended animation locks. It is also very good for zoning and delaying kill-stagger situations when outnumbered. The large AoE means it is also good for peeling for teammates or punishing bad positioning when enemies are bundled up.
It has many uses, so one should not fish for an ideal moment and just play around what best suits the matchup and situation.
Shadowhunter's second Awakening skill,does not see use in Arena PvP as it is too situational — it can only be used while demon form is activated.
