— 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 which cause the following effects every 1.5 seconds:
- Direct damage
- 1.5 sec Immobilize (not 1 sec)
- 8 sec bleeding, resulting in only 14 stacks of bleeding (not 20), allowing the stacks to reach a maximum quantity of 6. There are a total of 112 bleeds (14x8) over 28 sec for an average of 4 bleeds/sec over the duration.
