— In-game description [?]
- Despite the tooltip, the initial attack of skill can be blocked, and if it is blocked, the vines won't be spawned on the blocking foe.
- The skill traps up to five enemies around the user with destructible roots that inflict damage, bleeding and immobilized every 1.5 seconds.
- The direct damage does not vary or scale with power or damage modifiers, although it is increased by vulnerability. This is because the direct damage is inflicted by the roots themselves rather than the caster.
