Tactical Information

This is one of your major rescue skills. If the time arises when all hope is lost and your fellowship is failing, use HiPS to save yourself. It drops all threat and can save you lots of repair bills. The skill Ready and Able resets the cooldown on this skill, making it available more often.

It's also possible to get in stealth, so you can activate Trip for a Fellowship Manoeuvre.

After using this skill, a Riddled creature will attack you after it comes out of being Dazed. This can be used in your advantage; pull the creature you need to kill. Riddle it, use HiPS (all other creatures will reset), finish off.
