Notes[edit]

  • Inflicts the stun and damage when an enemy enters or exits its area (either through movement or teleporting skills).
  • Cannot be evaded.
  • The recharge in PvP is 30 seconds.
  • An undocumented change was made for the balance patch on August 8, 2017, the field no longer stuns enemies that are on the edge of the AoE upon placement.
Sometimes, hitting the Static Field area will daze instead of stunning the target.
