D&D4 Wiki

Shadow Shaper is a wizard paragon path introduced in Heroes of Shadow. It is included in a set of paragon paths designed to assist characters in creating shadow-based characters.

It is rated as a weak paragon path choice, with only the level 11 and 12 powers being of notable use, and with the level 20 power being average quality. At this level, you're not likely to benefit from the action point feature, and probably duplicated the level 16 power in a feat. [Charop Wizard]

Prerequisite: Wizard with at least one illusion power.

Mind and Body (11th level): Any illusion attack powers you use that target Will can target Fortitude instead.

Nightmares Made Real (11th level): When you spend an action point to use a 1st-level at-will illusion attack power against a single target, the attack deals maximum damage if it hits.
