Incapacitate or Knockout, previously called Disorient, is a form of crowd control that render a player or NPC unable to move or act for a short period of time. Incapacitate differs from Stun in that Incapacitate effects always break on damage, while Stun effects don't. Incapacitate effects are also often harder to break free from; a mage can for example break a stun by using Blink, but will be unable to do so if incapacitated.

Example of Incapacitate effects:
