    Default ebon terror

    I have a quick question about 1 skill from Nightblade's arsenal--> Ebon Terror. Description says "..causing the enemy to be disoriented...". What does this "disoriented" status do?

    Basicly it makes them stagger around in circles for a couple seconds. Actually, I'm not sure that the disorient from Ebon Terror breaks on damage, but it only lasts a couple seconds so it's hard to tell.

    I've never had Ebon Terror used on me, so I don't know if it does or not for sure, but NPCs have disorient like effects that make you run in circles and spin your camera around, so it may have some actual "disorienting" effects on players. In general though, once you get Dark Malady you can pretty much take Ebon Terror off of your skillbar, it just doesn't measure up.

    I haven't noticed that it breaks on damage, but the duration is very short.

    It doesn't break on damage.

    The animation is similar to blind. The target walks around for 2 sec.

    But well...if it doesn't break on damage...with Ebon Terror being spammable...doesn't it mean perma stun?

    it's not spamable, it's only usable from stealth

    It requires stealth. Now if you can perma-stealth, and you could remove diminishing returns, I'm sure 100% you could perma stun your target.

    when you get hit by it your whole screen gets so blurry its extremely hard to target who just hit you with it, it causes a triple vision effect and swaying camera view...

    It's not spammable, it's a stealth opener, ZAM just doesn't list the "Requires Stealth" line on any of either the Night Blade's or Assassin's stealth openers on its soul builder for some reason.

    yeah me and a guildy from RoM were testing skills on each other, and 'disorient' is definitely an understatement. the actual effect this causes is more devastating then what it does 'on paper' in my opinion. awesome unless people figure out a way to remove the effect...
