Rout is a threshold Ranged ability that is unlocked from the Scare Tactics book. Similar to its basic counterpart, it stuns, knocks back and binds the target for 3 seconds whilst dealing 40-200% ability damage.
Against monsters that are not stun-immune, Rout works well in conjunction with Piercing Shot. This is because Piercing Shot deals an extra 94% damage when the target is stunned.
Compared to its melee counterpart, Stomp (ability), it does not require being in melee distance and can attack from a distance. The 1 square knockback and stun only happens if the attack successfully hits and the mob is 1x1 square size.
