Signet of Capture:


  • If the hex is removed before it triggers, the target will not take damage nor will it be knocked down.
  • There is no armor penetration for this spell, unlike most other damaging spells in Air Magic.
  • Lightning Surge is frequently followed by Lightning Orb causing a predictable, but powerful spike.
  • Due to natural resistance, this skill can be used quite effectively against bosses and some boss-like foes


  • The warrior in the skill icon appears to be wearing Ascalon armor.
