Belgothian Shears stuns
Nidalla’s hidden hand adds slow to BS, AQC & WD
Shadow Strike stuns
Ring of Steel Stuns
Ring of Frost freezes
Veil of Shadow is a passive AOE SLow
Amarastas Blade Burst has chance to freeze
Blade Trap ensnares
Nightfall has chance to put to sleep
Circle of Slaughter has chance to fumble
Seems like a lot of CC to me
Nightblade isn’t a Ranged Class so the fact that it isn’t loaded with Ranged skills makes sense. It has 1 Ranged 2H Gun Skill and A ranged Casted ability.
Blade Barrier does zero damage so yes I guess its damage isn’t very good. It reflects Damage so it depends on how much damage enemy does.
