  • Despite the description, this skill is ground targeted.
  • Though it does not state so in the tooltip, this skill creates a light field.
  • Despite the description, the line is not unpassable. It acts like a trip wire by causing knockdown, but if the foe has stability or is otherwise immune to knockdowns they can pass through unaffected.
  • This usage of this skill is not limited by line of sight.
