Notes[edit]

  • This skill causes 150 Defiance bar damage.
  • Becoming obstructed while channeling does not stop the pull so long as you are not obstructed when the channel ends.
Sometimes in WvW/PvP if this skill is cast from higher terrain, it causes the pulled target to fly in the air and take falling damage, occasionally killing them instantly.
Sometimes the target isn't pulled all the way, the cause is unknown.
