Gwwlogo.png The Guild Wars Wiki has an article on Crippled.
  • Cripple will also shorten your leap range.
  • Story-related "wounded" NPCs are sometimes given a permanent Crippled effect to make them significantly slower. These effects can nevertheless still be drawn or removed by conventional condition-related skills.

Player chatter[edit]

  • When Cripple is applied to a character they will occasionally shout out one of the following lines, depending on their race and gender.
Race Gender
Male Female
Asura tango icon 20px.png Asura I'm incapacitated! My mobility is impaired!
Charr tango icon 20px.png Charr My leg! Can't walk right...
