Harnessed darkness not working?

I see the tooltip say that 3 stacks should make you immune to knock back but I have been hit by several knock backs during force lightning with 3 stacks.
Anyone else experienced this in pvp? At least I've seen interrupts fail but knock backs still work.

Nowhere in the description says it's immune to knockback.

It makes you immune to pushbacks occurence that makes your casting bar go backward when recieving hits. Completely different from knockbacks where people make you fly and thus interrupting any action..

Ah that explains it. Knowing that really makes me not care about the skill anymore as any non idiot will easily interrupt it anyways. Time to go back to deception.

You could always pop force shroud before force lightning...

This is good advice, anyone doing this in pvp should always always pop shroud before hitting a 3 stack lightning, too many knockbacks and stuns to avoid otherwise.

"Ah that explains it. Knowing that really makes me not care about the skill anymore as any non idiot will easily interrupt it anyways. Time to go back to deception."

Funny thing is..."interrupt" is exactly what they can't do according to tooltip lolz, even without shroud.

I agree, it's bugged.

It's not in my Madness tree, on my sorc, where it should be.

you can synergize it with stun and proc '+6% dmg to targets afected by spike/stun',
if enemy eats full duration, it ticks a hell lot of dmg in dps geat. specially if enemy healer is trying to run away

edit: it 's a tab like Revage for warriors, 3 sec channel, good dmg, but a channel
