Think players will be able to use downed skills while knocked down? -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 21:16, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

I highly doubt it. Shadow Runner 21:19, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
I hope they can't (considering knock-down is the strongest form of shut-down), but it would make sense. -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 21:24, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
Downed and Knock down are two different things, they share part of a word and that is it. 1 =/= won. EiveTalk 21:42, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, they are two different things. Knocked down implies that it was caused by knocking. Rectangle =/= square. -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 23:43, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Layout Change[edit]

I think the layout should be changed slightly for this page and similar pages. It seems redundant to list "skills that knockdown" within each profession header. Maybe we could have an overall header "skills that knock down" and then sort by profession...similarly to how the gw1 wiki is set up. I'll go ahead and make the changes on this page. If it seems reasonable then we can change other similar pages. If not, then just revert it, no biggy. Just makes more sense to me this way. --Saxon 04:22, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Yeah that looks better. (Xu Davella 04:57, 28 January 2011 (UTC))

Important note about KD compared to stun[edit]

Being a fairly new GW2 player I was curious about the difference between KD and stun. I did some Googling and this is what I found:

It says that KD can't be removed by condition removal or stun breakers, whereas stun can. If that's true then it's important info, it should be in the main article. --XacTactX (talk) 06:12, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

One guy says that and then it gets refuted.--Relyk ~ talk > 07:40, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Well, some enemies which use prolonged knockdown like gravelings or orrian gorillas sometimes prevent me from using instant cast skills like stealing. Dunno what the deal with that is, but it could use some testing, especially when the PvP servers become available to the public. Mediggo (talk) 12:53, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Yes, some foes have special skills that deal a complete disable that's worse than a normal knockdown - you can't recover from them with stun breakers because your entire skill bar is disabled. Normal knockdowns, like from a Harathi Trampler, don't disable instant skills (shouts/signets/cantrips/etc.), so you can still use stun breakers to recover from them. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 12:57, 15 May 2013 (UTC)


Usually skill facts that display knockdown only show the duration. Currently, Explosive Disengagement shows both duration and description is this format: "Knockdown(3s): Unable to move, unable to act." --BryghtShadow (talk) 17:24, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

You have Bone_Crack_(Bone), which displays Stun in both formats, with different durations. Just an oddity. SarielV 20 x 20px 18:12, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
