Quicksand is an environmental hazard that is inflicted on the player when walking or skimming over quicksand.“
Environmental effect: slow sand deals periodic damage. Riding a skimmer protects against quicksand.
— In-game description
If not mounted on a skimmer, this effect deals damage, inflicts daze, reduces movement speed, and prevents endurance regeneration or applying swiftness. The effect is cleared upon leaving the quicksand.
- Damage dealt by this effect is a percentage of the character's maximum health. As such, the damage ignores defense and does not count as a hit for "on-hit" effects. Similar to lava, damage continues after death, making revival difficult.
