Immobilize, true to its name, is a powerful crowd-control debuff that you can apply on enemies (or vice versa), rendering them completely motionless for a brief duration. However, unlike Stun or Freeze effects, immobilized targets retain their ability to attack. Think of it as an intensified form of the Slow effect, completely halting the target’s movement while they can still strike back!

The Immobilized effect can be inflicted on targets by casting various class-specific Skills or by fulfilling specific conditions with certain Legendary Aspects equipped. In the following section, let’s delve into the particular Skills and Aspects that can trigger the Immobilized effect.
