Signet of Capture:


This image shows how the user appears while under the influence of this skill.
  • While in this Form, character animations (emotes, attacks, casts, etc.) will be the same as the Male Warrior's.
  • This skill can be very useful for running, as it gives a non-removable bonus to armor and movement speed for a long duration.
  • Any action (including movement) will be cancelled when this form ends on you.
  • Skills such as Serpent's Quickness that reduce skill recharge rates have no effect on this skill, due to the fact that this skill is disabled instead of recharging.
  • +40 armor means that all damage is halved except for armor ignoring damage.
  • The holy damage conversion caused by this skill is highly effective at demolishing minion armies, particularly when combined with Banishing Strike.
  • Because the 120 second disable effect is triggered by the completion of the skill, if it is interrupted, it will only take the stated 30 seconds to recharge.
  • All Avatars can be recharged with Eternal Aura (though not kept up indefinitely at Mysticism 0 since the duration change).
  • Heroes in avatar form are comparatively smaller than humans in avatar form.
Image:Bug.png Bug! If killed while in this form and quickly resurrected, it may be possible to return in avatar form indefinitely until moving to a new location. This may be true of all avatars. Although armor and speed bonuses may not apply
