Notes

Strategy[edit]

The burn damage from Radiance's toggle ability will reveal the presence of the possessor if he or she is invisible or under the effect of Smoke of Deceit. If stealth is required, it may be a good idea to turn the burn damage off until stealth is no longer needed.
The burn damage from Radiance is very useful for disabling Blink Dagger since it gives no time for the Blink Dagger to become usable due to the constant burn damage.
