    as there were different opinions whether hitspell breaks paralyze special move in another thread, i am looking for your experience with this issue.

    some claimed only magic arrow and fireball would break para, while lightning and harm won't.

    me myself i believe all hitspells do.

    others implied that this was not meant to be and hitspell were not supposed to break it at all by design.

    any info on this?

    Harm and lightning are instant.. meaning they hit before the arrow.. so no Harm/Lightning will not break para... they will however hit disrupt any "Frozen"
    Affect they are doing themselves.. Aka Spells Spirit speak.. ect.. So with Thoes two spell procs you will never get the "That target is already frozen" message when trying to para shot someone.. IF your spell procs on the shot..

  3. According to Stratics the Paralyzing Blow Special Ability lasts 3 seconds against players and 6 seconds against NPC's and does not break by being hit again within that time frame.
     
  4. From ea.com

    Paralyzing Blow
    Effect: A successful Paralyzing Blow will leave the target stunned, unable to move, attack, or cast spells, for a few seconds.
    Mana Cost: 30
    Note: Duration is 3 seconds (player), 6 seconds(NPC). The 3(6) second duration is not broken by combat damage the way the paralyze spell is.

    I think 2 people just need to test it out and give us their feed back.

    paralzye speacil is just like paralyze spell, once you get hit by something its gone.

    I really dont need to test it beacuse i know since ive been using it past few days

    Magic arrow and fireball are delayed spells, they aren't DD spells they are bolt spells, bolt spells shoot at you like an arrow(magic arrow, fireball, energy bolt), and take a bit of time after the hit spell goes off to hit the person, thast why it breaks the paralyze

    spells like lightning and harm are DD spells, direct damage, which means when the spell is procd on the weapon the damage is dealt directly to the person. These spells DO NOT mess up paralyze

    Just grab a few weapons its not hard to test.
