So seems light we might get a root. Still no info on important stuff like energy cost, cooldown, root length, dagger's travel speed, animation times, damage on impact, dagger travel distance, but it can be a very good ability in theory.shadows edge:
throws (skillshot, harpoon range, bit faster travel speed) a dagger, on impact (friendly or enemy) you get teleported behind the target, rooting it for X seconds. (if enemy) or just get teleported without rooting (on friendly)
Oki, time to necro my thread now.
After some playtime after new patch on live I can say that Shadow Edge is much worse than I thought it would be. Actual ganking with it is worse than expected.
First of all, if you manage to hit it long distance - the root last about the same like your travel time. So there is no root.
Energycost reduction is so tiny it's not noticable at all, it still consumes way too much energy.
I found myself dying in situations I'd never die in with dash. Both escaping ganks and 1v1 1vx fights. And I can assure you it's the same in mass PvP as I managed to get a taste of it in the arena during the test.
So it's an absolutely unrewarding skillshit that does nothing when hit, takes all your mobility away, is worse than dash in every regard and requires a t6 dagger + 70 dagger mastery to use.
I tried to used it with skinner cap so I an place a bear trap under the mount and dismount people this way without using my wanderlust to chase people better. Turns out it works only for t4 horses and not even that often. I thought it'd be possible to get atleast one sunder armor off while the enemy is rooted, then beartrap him, then got two more SA+ST so he'll be dismounted, but there is not enough time. Probably because of assassin jacket nerf. But it only has a chance to work with ambush as with any other armor you'll be seen even further away, but even with ambush if you use it at the edge of nametag vision, you'll come out of ambush early enough so your target will see it and mount up, after that - not enough time to dismount.
If you're getting chased - you can't use it to escape, as hooking to some mob will give you mob aggro, plus it needs an actual mob to hook to, it doesn't work through obstacles so unlike dash, that you can use every 10 seconds, this thing not only has a bigger cooldown, but is so situational that even if you want to go to some mob - you'll need the mob itself positioned well enough and in clear view (not behind any obstacle).
For group ganking - once again there is not enough time from SE alone. Besides, it's possible to dismount up to t5 armored with daggers aswell, so if you're grouped with someone, it changes nothing.
The only good thing with it is group ganking with claws. This way it actually works, but out of group motivating pain + poison potions with dash will still work better.
1v1 it doesn't interrupt casting, it doesn't let you kite anyone, consumes too much mana, doesn't allow you do dodge AoEs, won't help you against windwall/wall of flames, etc.
So in the end it's a bad dash that looks cool. On t6 daggers and up. That's it.
Slit thoat damage proportions change is nice enough to be considered a really nice buff, it saved me when I needed my damage NOW, not as a dot.
Still had no time to get my hands on 1h dagger with hunter jacket buff, but I know for sure that it'd still be destroyed by any reflect, cc or kiting, but maybe it can be used as a frontline fighter/glass cannon for big spike DPS on some target, tho looking at the SE energy consumption reduction, I don't think 1h's energy consumption will go down that much, especially with assassin spirit getting no buff to it's energy efficiency.

I'm new player and I've always enjoyed playing like a Rogue/Assassin on MMOs, but in Albion, i think is different.
Daggers are so much useless? I'm afraid to choose and in the future regret.
(Taking advantage, could you recommend options that I could use as weapons in case the Dagger is not recommended?)
Thank you very much! And sorry for my english. hehe
