  • Even though all Risen abominations share the same ability list in their descriptions, their actual immunities vary between the variants spawned in different locations, instances, and events. For example:
    • The Lawen Ponds - Normal and veteran Risen abominations spawned in the world and from events here can be snared (crippled, chilled, immobilized) and launched, but are immune to all other control effects. The champion Ketsurak, on the other hand, is immune to all snares and control.
