Patch Changes
November 07, 2017
  • This skill can now be used to cancel Kneel if the player is sent airborne by an enemy skill.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause this skill to not remove all instances of the listed conditions.
September 22, 2017 Path of Fire release:
  • Free Action has been added to the game.


  • In Dungeons & Dragons, a free action is an action that can be done in the blink of an eye, such as dropping one's weapon or canceling a spell. Ironically, standing up (as this skill makes one do) is explicitly stated not to be a free action, instead being considered a movement action.
    • The game also includes an item named "Boots of Free Action", which prevents movement-impeding effects on the wearer - like those that this skill removes.
