    Shadow Fang trait for stalker does what?

    What does the shadow fang trait do? It sets all damage to shadow. What does that mean. Isn't most of my damage in shadow already, and even more if I'm in Shadow Stance? Surely there's a reason for its existence.

    As a warg all of your attacks will be doing common damage as standard, whether you are in Shadow stance or otherwise. The only way to make your attacks do shadow damage is to slot the trait 'Shadow Fang'. Shadow stance is a completely separate ability that does not affect damage type in any way, instead it increases the amount of damage your attacks do. In short you need to trait Shadow Fang in order to perform shadow damage attacks.

    Without the Shadow Fang trait your attacks will be doing common damage. Freeps tend to have a higher mitigation rating versus common damage than they do for shadow damage. All of a freep's armour value s added to their common mitigation rating whereas only 20% of their armour value s added to the mitigation rating used for shadow damage. Thus more of your damage will actually get through if you are using shadow damage, which means that your attacks will hit for more.

    Endless fun creeping on the freeps waiting for a weakling or straggler to step into your jaws.
