  • In PvP, use on an enemy to either disable a skill or force the character to stop using skills until Diversion expires or is removed. This can be timed to try to force monks into a bad situation during a spike.
  • Instant recharge effects, such as that from Glyph of Renewal, will cause a skill to recharge instantly even if it was completed while hexed by Diversion.
  • Assassin attack skills used out of order have an instant recharge effect and can be used to get rid of Diversion with no adverse effect.
  • Diversion takes effect immediately when a skill finishes casting, before the skill's effect takes place. This means that if the hexed foe uses a hex removal skill, Diversion will be triggered by that skill, disabling it and then the skill will remove the next hex.
  • While hexed with Diversion, casting a skill that gets replaced with another skill (I.E. Inspired Enchantment, Arcane Mimicry, or like skills) will ignore the effects of Diversion.
