Cause confusion when you blind a foe. Blocking or evading an attack inflicts blind on your opponent.
The same foe cannot be blinded more than once within the interval.

— In-game description


Can only inflict confusion on one foe from a single instant hit; Counterspell can confuse up to 5 targets, while The Prestige can only confuse 1.
  • This trait will list another separate stack of Confusion on the skill Chaos Armor because it used to cause blind, though only one stack will apply at a time.
