Tactical Information

This is one of the major crowd-control skills of the Burglar. It can also be used as an interruption skill (if Addle-icon.png Addle is on cool-down). Keep in mind that DoTs on an enemy will break the Dazed-icon.png Dazed  , so be careful when you apply this skill.


This skill is a direct reference to The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien's prequel to The Lord of the Rings. In two cases, Bilbo kept a very dangerous opponent at bay by engaging it in riddles: both Gollum, and the dragon Smaug. In Gollum's case, the riddle-game was his idea, but the point still stands that Bilbo was quite good at them himself.
