Question about Harnessed Darkness

It says in the description: "which makes the next Force Lightning used uninterruptible and immune to pushback"

In my head that sounds like it can't be interrupted by moves like force push, overload or any other knockbacks but whenever I use it people tend to do just that.

What exactly do they mean then?

"Pushback" is a term meaning the increase in cast time (or in the case of a channeled spell, loss of time - ie. less damage/heals from missing out on ticks) that is due to taking damage. Harnessed Darkness thus means that your spell cannot be interrupted, and you cannot lose damage due to getting hit and reducing the time you channel for.

Knocking you around will still interrupt just fine.

Immunity to interrupt means it's immune to effects like Jolt that specifically interrupts a spell. It does not protect you from anything that interrupts a spell as a side effect (anything that moves you or stuns you).

Pushback is not the same thing as knockback
