The Ebon Dust Skirmisher is built around supporting its group through chants and conditions. The enchantment Ebon Dust Aura is combined with the Paragon's ability to attack quickly and precisely to apply Blind indefinitely. This build has remarkable utility while remaining specialized enough to fit a specific role within a team.

  • You should carry three different spears with you:Vampiric, Zealous, and Ebon. Make sure you have your Ebon Spear equipped when trying to Blind opponents.
  • Make sure to equip a Rune of Clarity, and it might be wise to bring one weapon with an "I can see clearly now!" inscription.
  • You will need to have at least 35 energy for this build to work effectively.


  • Cast and maintain Ebon Dust Aura when targeting opponents that rely on attacks.


  • A little taste of your own medicine in the form of a Plague Touch or other blinding skills.
  • Enchant removal can hinder your ability to blind.


  • Or, put attribute points into earth prayers and take Wild Throw instead of GftE for more offense at the expense of energy management.
