  • Does not recover SP from absorbed traps or monster skills
  • This is a unique skill that treats the affected areas like dead cells. Any ground targetted skill that does not work on a dead cell will not work on areas affected by Maelstrom.
  • This skill prevents ground paint and AoE magic working or cast within the area.
  • This skill prevents traps from being placed within AoE.
  • Other traps can be pushed in and/or damage targets inside AoE.
  • Shields enemies, allies, and the user who steps within its AoE.
  • Magnetic Earth prevents casting of this skill.
  • Does not clear already placed traps or other static ground-based skills eg. Sage's Elemental fields.
