  • In effect this skill-spell is similar to the Magick Archer bow spell Vortex Trail, except it can only be cast on the ground.
  • The area of effect increases from Funnel Sigil (around six foot radius) to Vortex Sigil, which is at least double in size.
    • Maelstrom Sigil has increased pulling power.
    • Weaker in effect than the Magick Bow spell Vortex Trail, with a long cast time and short duration.
  • Effective in combination with Ruinous Sigil, even more so when both are combined at the same place as a Great Cannon sigil.
  • Decaying Grimoire casts a spell similar to Funnel Sigil.
  • It is not known if Funnel Sigil's relatively long duration is intended or a minor bug.
