Signet of Capture:


  • Very useful when cast on enemies that spam spells such as Flare. If they continue to spam spells, their energy will drain rapidly; the alternative is to not cast anything. Both scenarios are in your favor.
  • Combine with Wastrel's Worry for added pressure and Mind Wrack for damage.
  • The spell/chant will still be interrupted even if you cannot hex them (e.g., if the target has Hex Breaker).
  • Spells must complete casting for the hex's effect to work. If the spell fails or is interrupted, nothing happens.
  • Heroes will treat this skill as a hex spell instead of an interrupt, and will use it on opponents regardless of whether they are casting a spell or not.
