Item Database - Intrusive Aura of Entanglement

Intrusive Aura of Entanglement Icon #46276 This nano program surrounds the engineer's targeted pet with a pulsing field of nanobots. Every 30 seconds, this field will pulse out from the pet and attempt to harm all nearby enemies. The nanobot field then returns to the pet, to reform for the next pulse. This particular field will, if successful, lower the runspeed of the affected enemies by 200 points. While active on the pet, this field will also enhance the attack rating of the pet by 15 points, making it more likely to hit its target.

This is a very disappointing line of nanos, and in many cases are not worth the trouble to cast them. Almost everything about this spell is bad:

- Casting time sucks, adding another total 14 seconds to your already long list of bot buffs.

- Spell duration is low, meaning you have to constantly babysit this to keep it active.

- It is EXTREMELY resistable. The tier 1 spell has defense skills: Level 225% Nano resist 200%, this means that it is absolutely horrendous to make this stick on a monster. If you're a fan of soloing like I am, you usually like to take on monsters 15-20 levels above you. By that formula, not only does normal nano resist have a double effect at resisting this, but LEVEL has two and a quarter percent chance to resist this too! This combined with the "pulses only once per 30 seconds" aspect means that it'll hit only infrequently on monsters near your level, and rarely vs higher level monsters. While these resistances go down as you advance up the tree (down to defense skills Nano resist 180% Level 35% for the Qlevel 199 spell) the resistability is still very high.

- In the case that it does actually hit, the amount of actual slowing is negligable. The lowest tier is only -200 run speed. Most monsters at Qlevel 60 or better will pretty much laugh at this. Fixer's QL 64 target spell of this type does -690 run speed, is also AOE, is less resistable, has WAY more duration (almost 12 minutes vs this spell's THIRTY SECONDS) and is pretty much better in every way. Considering the fact engy gets very few debuffs, it can't afford to have bad nanos like this in its list.

- The duration of this spell, as noted above, is only 30 seconds. In actuality, it's about two seconds. This is probably likely because monsters get some resistance vs the duration of snare/root spells, but in any case, a monster that you are, through some fluke of luck, able to hit and barely slow, it hardly lasts long enough for you to reap the rewards of your frustration.

- This spell appears to suffer from jealousy o

continued - previous was cut off:

- This spell appears to suffer from jealousy of other snare spells that actually WORK. A fixer I was teaming with was reporting that this aura was overriding his better spell (I didn't confirm it, but he was insisting it was). In either case, its green envy is quite apparent, as it gives any monster it can actually hit a flourescent green aura for a moment.

The only reason to even cast this spell might be for the small offense boost (15, pfft), but otherwise there are much more effective uses of your bot's NCU.
LanceHeart @ 2005-01-23 05:11
Hamburglar has a point. As of right now, this line of pet buffs is in serious need of reworking, or a total drop out of the game.
woldsom @ 2005-04-03 01:53
This spell has it's limited use in PVP; while I could resist it half the time with a level 60 MP that hasn't spendt a single IP in NR, the snare snagged my level 90-95 pets every time.
CaptainFart @ 2005-04-24 23:03
There is one plus to it...if you need to run away you can :)
minusa @ 2005-06-22 20:38
It is good aggroing mechanism for your pet. Useful to keep harm out of you and to your pet who can endure it.
Russm @ 2005-09-01 07:18
is it rollablr or dyna loot?
EldarZach @ 2005-10-26 05:46
This line isn't even rollable.
Vunts @ 2005-11-23 22:52
is it just me, or does noone actually know that this nano works in a nanoleech fashion. i was pvp'ng an enf, and he said that he ran out of nano too fast, that he didn't know wtf was going on. and then i did pvp with my friend, and he said that he loses nano every time this snare refreshes. i dunno if it's a bug or not, or if it's different now, cos i haven't checked it in a while, but i'm surprised noone mentioned this :S
oh yah, btw: this takes the casters nanopoints away also, but then many nanos will an engineer have to cast in pvp.
Vunts @ 2005-11-23 22:54
oh yea, i "won" against that enfo btw, cos he couldn't cast mongo. this nano literally took his nanopoints to 0, and he never guessed it coming probably
Emokid666 @ 2006-06-27 02:31
well seems pointless to me. say i was in totw. the only thing id end up with is a train of sodding cultists that would just stand there trying to kill my bot. And as for pvp now that everyone knows it is a nanoleech (thanx Vunts) that means theyre gonna be ready. so just bin this line and start again.
regsvr32 @ 2007-04-08 17:32
that not true that roll able roll it as picked item reward from find item mission so plz dont lie to us
regsvr32 @ 2007-04-08 17:35

pythagorean @ 2007-10-17 04:33

gingersnap @ 2008-03-08 07:09
It's not only rollable, it's sold at fair trade
Russm @ 2008-10-07 07:52
ffs please dont call this a "spell" this isnt wow
Chartax @ 2009-01-28 17:06
Defense skills

Level 225 %
Nano resist 200 %

Also, why is everyone calling it a spell? Hamburglar's the worst for it.
Ciekafsky @ 2009-10-01 11:37
Dont listen to those nubs, this snare auras are pure ownage, them make mobs unable to chase you :)
jokeUsa @ 2011-07-27 11:19
Lowest one is shop buyable, just remember to look at the END of the shop because its NanoCrystal w/o space inbetween, so gets displayed at end of the list.
