Defensive buff



The nightward proc is a defensive buff that always protects against shadow damage that is directly dealt by an opponent.


The nightward proc is always gained at the beginning of a battle.

Damage reduction

The amount of shadow damage that is reduced because of the nightward proc varies based on its level:

Nightward level Shadow damage reduction
Level 1 −5% of final shadow damage amount
Level 2 −10% of final shadow damage amount
Level 3 −15% of final shadow damage amount
Level 4 −20% of final shadow damage amount
Level 5 −25% of final shadow damage amount


Fewer sources of higher level nightward are more effective at reducing the amount of shadow damage you will take than more sources of lower level nightward. See the wards page for an explanation of how damage reduction calculations are performed and why two higher level nightwards are more effective than 4 lower level nightwards.
