Ability sf3
Shadow Ability is a gameplay feature in Shadow Fight 3. It is a special ability which can be used while in Shadow form. Each ability gives different effect to either the player or enemy, like creating a shockwave, conjuring a dragon, teleporting, and many more. Shadow abilities are contained in equipment, so wearing that equipment allows the player to use the corresponding Shadow ability in fights. Each piece of equipment of rarity higher than Common has its own Shadow Ability. The damage dealt by Shadow ability is determined by Helms.

Using Shadow Ability Edit

ShadowAbilityOverview

Characters using various Shadow abilities.

Shadow ability cannot be blocked, but may be dodged. It also can stop the Legion's "temporary uninterruption" interval. Shadow ability cannot deal Head hits or Critical hits. In order to use a Shadow ability, a piece of gear that contains that ability must be equipped. However, this only applies to the player and most enemies, while a number of enemies are excepted. Some enemies can still use an ability despite not equipping the required gear, such as June who can utilize Blink ability despite not wearing Heralds suit.

Shadow abilities can only be used while in Shadow form; the character can enter Shadow form when the Shadow energy bar is fully charged. The bar is located under the health bar, and both the player and the opponents start a fight with the bar filled halfway through, unless enforced by a fight rule or modified with perk. The bar is recharged by dealing or taking damage. Taking damage recharges the shadow bar faster than dealing damage, this applies to both the player and opponent. 

Once the bar is fully charged, the character can use an ability to enter Shadow form or simply press the Shadow button to enter it. To use an ability, players must press the Shadow button along with a directional button. A Shadow ability has a cooldown time. Therefore, characters cannot spam Shadow abilities as much as they want. Shadow form lasts for 10 seconds. There are circumstances where the Shadow bar is missing, therefore preventing the use of Shadow form, or the enemy is in unlimited Shadow form.

List of Weapon Shadow Abilities Edit

To use weapon's Shadow ability, press the Shadow + Forward/Backward directional button (the direction the character is facing the opponent). The cooldown time for Weapon Shadow abilities is 5 seconds.
