— In-game description


  • The roots last for 4 seconds unless destroyed. The conditions are applied once upon the creation of the Binding Roots and again on each hit from the roots, which occurs 3 times at an interval of 1.5 seconds.
  • Oakhearts and other plants also use an attack called "Binding Roots", but their version does not apply bleeding.
