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 is on cooldown). Keep in mind that DoTs on an enemy will break the 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.
