— In-game description

Arm's Length is an action unlocked at level 32. It is available for Melee DPSPhysical Ranged DPS and Tank.

Additional Information

The Slow icon1.png Slow is a reduction to enemies' auto-attack speed and global cooldown time. This makes Arm's Length in effect a defensive ability in addition to nullifying knockbacks. Therefore, it should be used as part of a tank's regular defensive cooldown rotation when pulling enemies in dungeons. Note that the Slow icon1.png Slow debuff should not be confused with Heavy icon1.png Heavy which is a reduction in movement speed.

Not all knockback and draw-in effects can be prevented. In some newer duties, these will be indicated with purple knockback telegraphs.

This action also prevents Rescue.png  Rescue from dragging the player.

The analogous anti-knockback ability for Magic Ranged DPS role.png Magical Ranged DPS and Healer role.png Healers is Surecast.png  Surecast.
