Signet of Capture:


  • This is an effective skill to use in conjunction with Ether Phantom: at 14 inspiration, it will provide up to 20 energy and also cause the foe to lose up to 10 energy for only a 10 energy cost.
  • Consider using this skill to prematurely cancel out effects such as Kitah's Burden for massive energy management: at 10 inspiration and 13 illusion, this combination grants a net gain of 16 energy, after the energy costs of the hex and Drain Delusions.  This technique is useful against stationary enemies such as shrine/quarry NPCs in PvP.
  • There is great synergy between this skill and Web of Disruption.
