EQUIP a slowing orb. FIRE to throw a slowing orb forward that detonates upon landing, creating a lingering field that slows players caught inside of it.
— In-game description

Slow Orb is a basic ability for Sage.


Slow Orb is a Crowd Control ability that Sage must equip before casting. Upon casting she throws forward a slow orb that detonates on contact with horizontal terrain, covering a surrounding area in radianite crystals. Any agents who come into contact with these crystals are slowed and give off an audio cue if whenever they run across the zone. Once it expires, the zone will rapidly dissipate.
