Looks suspiciously like...

So
At the end of that 30 min video where Stephen blinks and then starts shadow dashing and claims it's his god powers.

Any one else think that was an augment alteration applied to the blink ability? Either a rogue shadow effect, or cleric death effect?

    I was thinking it might be Rush.

    I don't think it was an Augment on Blink.

    The implication is that you can't activate the non-augmented version of a skill separately. And we see the character use actual blink multiple times, but I believe we also saw that 'Shadow Dash' used separately without any Blink required first.

    I 'vote' that there's no way to tell if that's an Augmented anything, or just a secondary faster movement ability for the Mage. And believe me, I'd love it to be an Augment to think on, I just don't think it is yet.
    Sorry, my native language is Erlang.

    I thought about that too, but since he first showed a basic looking blink (which I think should only be a mage) and it didn't require a target like a charge/rush ability normally does in other games, I ended up thinking it was an augmented blink.

    Clearly all speculation though. Either way was cool to finally see something new

    Keep in mind, whenever he does these things, he has whatever abilities he wants without constraints. Maybe he just has the basic, and an augmented version in his bar, or he augmented it on the fly for the video.
    I guess it could just be a whole new ability, but good god. If a mage can blink and do that dash thing as two different abilities how is anyone supposed to catch them?

    As I said though, it was cool seeing something new either way.

    To me it just looked like he was spamming the blink ability without cool downs. Which looked pretty bad ass imo.

    Blink is purple. The other ability he used was green, IIRC.

    I really hope teleport/blink abilities work like Streak in ESO. The mag cost increases the more you spam it. So you can really only spam it 3-4 times before it exhausts your magic bar. Forces you to make decisions wisely but good for the classes that aren't tanky to get in and out of combat quick.

    It definitely feels a bit like he gave us a tease about the augmented ability, @TheDarkSorcerer referenced the ESO ability streak. I am thinking based on the use Steven showed us that the blink we had already seen was the basic ability, the 2nd was an augment applied to said ability however acted like the one in ESO, where spamming increased cost until mana was completely drained. Based on how he continued that dash for an extended period at one point, it is possible he had no CD and I bet he did but it felt more like he was teasing a ramping cost dash ability augmented off the blink.
