Disarm Edit

Disarm is a status effect that causes a player or NPC to drop their weapon. The player may cancel the effect by walking over the fallen weapon. While disarmed, players cannot use Abilities. Disarm is especially dangerous in instances, where 5 person groups (with similar classes) may have difficulty finding their specific weapons. Some player-made addons provide labelling of weapons scattered by a disarm, which can help to alleviate this confusion.

Disarm is also known as Subdue.
