DISORIENT chance: 100%

Notes Edit

  • Activation is a fixed stamina value.
  • If you upgrade Pinning Shot with Disorienting Shot, the disoriented status is only inflicted if the target is pinned.
  • Any damage inflicted after the target is pinned/disoriented removes the pinned/disoriented status.
  • Since damage from bleeding, elemental runes, Deathroot Toxin and Elemental Weapons is inflicted after the target is pinned, having any of those on the archer automatically removes the pinned/disoriented status after less than a second. This mechanic makes the ability unwieldy for cross-class combos and crowd control.
