  • When Stifling Dagger hits its target, a regular 0 damage attack from Phantom Assassin is executed on the target.

    • Chance based effects user their own proc chance and are not guaranteed to proc.
    • It can also proc anything which reacts on attacks hitting, like Counter Helix, Reactive Armor and Return.
    • However, it cannot proc effects which react when an attack begins, rather than hits, like Craggy Exterior and Moment of Courage.
    • It also does not break Tranquil Boots (Active) icon.png Tranquil Boots', neither on Phantom Assassin, nor on the target.
