— In-game description


  • The character will occasionally shout out one of the following lines upon activating this skill.
    • Steady your mind.
    • In readiness, stillness.
    • Silence!
  • The November 7, 2017 game update introduced a different visualisation for Winds of Disenchantment cast by an enemy in Player versus Player or World vs World to make them distinguishable. While a bubble casted by an ally is shining clearly golden, an enemy casted bubble appears in a dirty golden sheen.
  • This skill does not immediately remove newly applied boons, instead it makes foes immune to receiving any boons from any source in PvE and PvP.
Channeling this skill applies Revealed to the caster.
