-A Shadowrath triggering Shinobi.
Shinobi--also commony known as stealth--is a skill common to Shadowrath that can be upgraded two times. When activated, the Shadowrath becomes transparent (an outline can still be seen) and can no longer be hit by any attacks, but also slows down in exhange for the temporary invincibility. Also, a strike from a Shadowrath performing Shinobi will prove lethal, severely wounding (level one) or killing (level two) basic units and spellcasters in one strike and poisoning those who survive the strike. This makes Shinobi the most powerful melee attack in all of Inamorta, giving the Shadowrath a large edge in a battlefield.
Use in BattleEditShinobi is sometimes used to scout an enemy's base unseen and to prevent a shadowrath from recieving damage. But more often than not, it is used to assassinate high-ranking foes, who can be killed easily by one strike from Shinobi. It can be upgraded two times. The first upgrade will unlock Shinobi, and allow a low-health unit, such as a Swordwrath, Archidon or Crawler to be killed with one or two mighty strikes. The second upgrade allows a much more vast killing circle. It will be able to take down many spellcasters, such as the Marrowkai, in one to two strikes. This is due to level 2 Shinobi literally being three times more powerful than the original. The only units Shiobi II can't kill are Speartons, Juggerknights, Albowtross, Eclipsors, and Giants. Also, note that Shinobi, while severely reducing speed, makes for an effective retreat as it prevents Shadowraths from suffering most forms damage and still allows the Shadowrath to outrun most units.
PostureEditShadowrath using Shinobi will turn transparent, letting them be unseen by enemies but visible to you, due to the small circles underneath their feet and th e faint outline around their body. They move much slower in order to keep themselves hidden, and their health bar will be replaced with a timer signifying the length time Shinobi will be turned on.
If a Shadowrath is told to attack while Shinobi is on, he will attack while transparent with his staff or sword. The inflicted enemy will receive immense damage as well as poison overtime, being displayed by a green liquid symbol above their head.
Many enemies die by one strike of Shinobi. Several others take around two, only, if Shinobi is level 2. Tank units often take the most shots to kill, while ranged units and spellcasters often take the least.
