Related traits[edit]


  • The grasping hand acts like a projectile and therefore has to hit your target to apply the pull effect.
  • The Chill effect occurs once the target reaches you (or when it should have in case it didn't).
The projectile goes slowly in a straight line, making it impossible to hit targets moving sideways.
