This page is about the Ascendancy class. For the Ascendant passive, see Trickster (Ascendant passive).

The Trickster is an Ascendancy class for Shadows.

Overview

The Trickster is a versatile defensive class focused around evasion and energy shield-related defenses. The Trickster gains added layers of defence to his evasion and energy shield from Escape Artist, which they can further augment with leech with Soul Drinker or spell suppression with Spellbreaker. Other layers of defense they can acquire include Heartstopper for alternating defenses against hits or damage over time and One Step Ahead to become resistant to action speed reduction while slowing nearby enemies down. Finally, Swift Killer grants major frenzy charge bonuses and Polymath gives more damage and recovery the more they varied their skill tree is.
