Tactical Information

Herb-lore is an excellent skill to root enemies. Unlike the Lore-master's other root skill,  Cracked Earth, the root is instant and does not deal damage.

Herb-lore has a long cooldown, as opposed to Cracked Earth. It is therefore not possible to chain root enemies by using only this skill. It's worth noting that the root of Herb Lore has a 50% chance to break after damage, while Cracked Earth has a 25% chance. It is thus easier to break a root caused by Herb Lore than a root caused by Cracked Earth.
