Mana Cost: 90 Cooldown Time: 17
Additional Information
Manipulating her psionic veil, Lanaya bends nature's law to her will.

  • Damage blocks 100% of the incoming damage, independently of bonus damage ability gives to Lanaya.
  • Only instances of more than 5 damage (after all reductions) will remove a charge.
  • Disables and other debuffs go through Refraction.
  • Refraction bonus damages add to Templar Assassin's raw attack damage bonus, which can be a critical strike when it procs. This also means it works fully against buildings.
  • While Refraction's damage block is active, Templar Assassin, allies, and enemies will see a visual effect around her (a white "forcefield").
  • Whenever Refraction blocks an instance of damage, a small visual effect will occur. This is visible to both allies and enemies.
  • While Refraction's self-damage bonus is active, Templar Assassin gains a visual effect (her psi-blades will be longer and glow more). This is visible to both allies and enemies.
  • Since attack damage is decided when the projectile is made, activating Refraction with an attack projectile in the air will not give it the bonus damage or consume an instance.
