Overview

Earth Control is a standard power set that is a primary set for Controllers and Dominators.

"You can control the forces of the Earth. You can manipulate earth and stone to defeat your foes. The crushing force of many Earth Powers can reduce a target's Defense. Being of the Earth, many of these powers need to be performed while on the ground."

Powers

EarthGrasp AnimateStone.png Animate Stone

Earth and stone coalesce to form an incredibly tough entity that can attack your foes. The Animated Stone is immune to Psionic damage. It is also virtually immune to Sleep, Immobilize, Disorient, and Hold effects. The entity can be healed and buffed like any teammate. Type "/release_pets" in the chat window to release all your pets.
