— 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.
