  • This is probably a tribute to Star Wars' Darth Vader, himself a dark, fallen warrior with mystic powers, who often used the Force to choke those who displeased him.
  • When tanking, this can be used to make a caster mob run into melee range with you.

Patch changes

  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.2.0 (04-Aug-2009): This ability will also apply a 3 second interrupt effect against non-player controlled targets, making it more versatile against creatures immune to silencing effects.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): No longer does damage and has been reduced to 1 rank.
