    can you perform instant attacks while hidden, stunned, cyclone, invis (and will you have the bonus damage from attacking while invis), etc?

    Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes.

    hidden/stunned/cycloned: If instant attacks wouldn't work during them, then spells like Stifling Dagger and aghs upgraded Assassinate could be nullified by cycloning the caster before projectile impact.

    Invis: If the invis breaks on attack, then instant attacks will break the invis as well. But just like regular attacks, instant attacks performed during the fade time of invis spells will apply the WW bonus damage without breaking the invis.
