Notes[edit]

  • Can be used while under control effects.
  • This skill is actually a point blank area of effect.
  • Although this skill has a very comprehensive animation when used, it is invisible to enemy players in WvW and sPvP, so you will not reveal your position while stealthed if you use it.
