Hybrid Talent (Shadow Step)


There are three primary mechanics that make this possible. Cunning sneak allows you to make a stealth check to become invisible if you move at least three squares and have cover. Shadow Step allows you to teleport adjacent to another creature within 5 squares at epic level. Shadow Walk grants concealment if you move 3 or more squares. This allows you to hit a creature, teleport and become invisible, then repeat the process on your next turn.

Munchkin-Size Me[edit]

Armor of Dark deeds grants concealment if you hit a creature granting combat advantage. If you don't want to keep switching targets for the purpose of placing more shrouds on a creature you can use the armor in that manner, then shift 2 squares with Long Step and make the stealth check with Improved Cunning Sneak. The Perfect Slayer epic destiny will make all shrouded creatures grant combat advantage to you and increase your DEX.


Truesight and Tremorsense. The second can be avoided easily with Lightstep slippers. Other than using Sundering Shadow then retreating outside of the creatures vision to use shadow attacks it would be difficult to remain undetected.
