Withering Step is a movement skill that applies the Elusive and Phasing buffs on use. Enemies that get near you while you have Elusive receive multiple stacks of the Withered debuff for a duration, causing them to take increased chaos damage. Using any skill ends Withering Step's effects and removes all buffs, except the Withered debuff on enemies.

Version history

Version Changes
3.23.0
  • Quality now causes the skill to inflict +0-2 Withered Debuffs the first time each Enemy enters the Area, instead of providing 0-10% increased Effect of Elusive from this Skill.
3.21.0
  • Withering Step is now able to be supported by Spell Totem.
3.20.0
  • Withering Step can no longer be used while already Elusive. This change shouldn't affect builds that don't have ways to gain Elusive outside of Withering Step.
3.11.0
  • Fixed a bug where the Withering Step effect lost an eye. It had no effect on accuracy as far as we know.
3.8.0
  • Withering Step has been added to the game.
