Shadowborn is a paragon tier Drow feat.

Whenever you start an encounter in an area of darkness or dim illumination, you gain a +2 bonus to your initiative check and, until the second round of combat, a +1 feat bonus to damage rolls against any creature you have combat advantage against. [Dr367:38]


  • At paragon tier Weapon Focus gives a better output for the damage bonus. This leaves only the initiative bonus being useful.
