Maelstrom is a unique skill that treats the effected areas like dead cells. Any ground targetted skill that does not work on a dead cell will not work on areas effected by Maelstrom.

Prevents ground paint and AoE magic working or casted within the area.

Prevents traps from being placed within AoE.

Other traps can be pushed in and/or damage targets inside AoE.

Shields enemies, allies and 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.
