RiftSurge LimboVolatile
Rift Surge
Surges nearby Rift-bound enemies with Rift energy. When killed the Rift Surge is transferred to a nearby enemy outside the rift. Surged enemies that leave the Rift perform a radial Banish.
Duration:10 / 15 / 20 / 25 s (surge duration)
6 / 10 / 14 / 18 s (banish duration)
Range:10 / 15 / 20 / 25 m (surge & transfer range)
? / 3 / 4 / 5 m (banish radius)

  • Limbo produces a surge of Rift energy in a 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 meters radius around him, charging all Rift-bound enemies in range for 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 seconds. Surged enemies that leave the Rift plane will discharge their Rift energy, ending their surge and resulting in a radial banishment; the enemy whose surge is discharged from and any material-bound enemies within ? / 3 / 4 / 5 meters are forced into the Rift plane for 6 / 10 / 14 / 18 seconds.
  • Killing a surged enemy will transfer its charge to a nearby enemy within 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 meters in the material plane. Enemies banished by the effect of Rift Surge will be knocked-down and take 300 Impact b Impact transitional damage upon entering or leaving the Rift plane.
  • Limbo does not need to be in any particular plane to activate Rift Surge, but at least one enemy must be in the Rift and within range to cast it.
  • Cannot be recast unless an unaffected enemy enters the Rift and/or comes within cast range.
  • For more information on Rift-related attributes, see the Rift Plane mechanic.

Tips & Tricks
  • Rift Surge is designed to keep enemies sealed inside the Rift by extending their Banish duration, as well as provide a way for Limbo to bring new enemies into the Rift without endangering himself by returning to the material plane.
  • The following techniques and occurrences can trigger Rift Surge's banish effect on charged enemies:
    • Recast Banish on banished enemies, causing them to momentarily leave the Rift plane.
    • Banish's debuff duration ends on affected enemies.
    • Rift Surge's banish debuff duration ends.
    • Detonating Cataclysm to expose enemies inside it to the material plane.
    • Enemies exiting Cataclysm by moving through its boundaries.
  • Casting Banish on a surged enemy in the Rift will allow you to take nearby enemies into the Rift as well, instead of having to exit the Rift or cast Cataclysm.
    • It's usually beneficial to have Stasis active before new enemies come in, so that you don't take unnecessary damage from the newly banished enemies.
