Notes[edit]

  • Despite the tooltip, the knockdown lasts 3s and therefore causes 300 Defiance Bar damage. This is probably due to PvE balance for a CC-Elite to be strong in breaking Defiance Bars. It has no impact against other players in PvP or WvW, since the float interrupts the knockdown anyway.
  • The 1s float causes 100 Defiance Bar damage, the pull causes 150 Defiance Bar damage; the whole skill causes a total of 550 Defiance Bar damage.

  • In astrophysics, the term gravity well refers to the gravitational pull a body exerts in space.
