How to create a Shadower

To create one, choose the 'Explorers' option in the Character Creation screen and then continue through the story until you reach the town MapIcon Lith Harbor Lith Harbor where Sugar has a quest called 'The Adventure Begins'. Accept the quest and choose the option 'Thief' when prompted

Continue with the story until Lv. 30 as a Thief and talk to Dark Lord to accept a quest called 'The 2 Paths of the Thief'. Complete the quest by choosing the option Bandit and you will be on the path to a Shadower. Bandit is the 2nd job of Shadower

Dark Sight

Referenced from Nox, Fatalyz, and jlijlij

Dark Sight can only ignore falling debris such as from bosses like Magnus meteors, Pierre hats, Vellum rocks, Papulatus falling clocks, and Lotus demolishers. There are several %Max HP attacks that can be ignored, for example, Magnus spin attack, Crimson Queen's DoT flame, and Damien falling yellow/red meteors

Some example of other attacks that can be avoided include, Gollux reverse key bomb (debuff still applies but no damage or stun is taken), Magnus stun smoke, Damien p2 full map attack, webs in Will p2, and enemy touch damage. Most non-debris one-shots cannot be avoided. For example, Vellum's tail attack and head pop, Von Bon's orb projectile and Crimson Queen's flame breath

All direct attacks from newer bosses such as Lotus, Damien, Lucid and Will are unavoidable
