Notes:

  • Interupts the owner's channeling spells upon cast.
  • The spell immunity dispels many buffs and debuffs upon getting applied.
    • List of removed buffs and debuffs can be found here.
  • Causes the user's model size to increase by 30% for its duration. This has no impact on its collision size.
  • For more details, including a list of spells which are not blocked, see Spell immunity.
