Unbalance calls upon the spiritual forces to throw the target off balance. On a successful standard maneuver roll, the target is Staggered and suffers an unbalancing injury, often resulting in the foe falling down.

The duration of the Staggered effect is 5 to 20 seconds. (Note: This is different from the standard negative duration formula.)

Some creatures (such as those that can float or fly) cannot be knocked down with this spell and would simply take some damage.
