Maelstrom is a Skill in Dragon's Dogma.
"An advanced form of Maelstrom that summons a larger, longer-lasting whirlwind to wreak havoc upon foes."
- Pulls most enemies up into the air, dealing Dark damage, and then drops them when the wind subsides, dealing additional fall damage.
- This advanced version of Maelstrom will keep most enemies stunlocked for the duration of the skill, even the Ur Dragon. This can be used advantageously as a shield by running into the storm and attacking the stunlocked enemies still on the ground or recharging another spell.
- Large and strong enemies are able to resist the whirlwind's pull. Also ineffective against enemies resistant to Dark Magick (e.g. Hydras, Succubi, Banshees and armored Cyclops)
- A highly damaging attack that can be difficult to avoid if cast on you by enemies.
