    @Antrax Artek, there are some spells that are set to be interrupted by movement while casting. this is deliberate. if you have "prevent movement while casting" checked in settings, then you'll be held still while you cast it. if you don't, and you cast it and try to move during, you'll interrupt yourself. that's what the option is for and it doesn't hold you still unless the spell is one of the ones flagged for interruption.

    Yea i well know how it works, i'm trying to understand if it is intended to works in this way specifically on the root skill, considering it is a skill used to prevent the target from moving and not the caster itself.
    All other spells with similar effects (for example ice field/arrow or confusion) are not working in this way but they can all be used in movement, seems just big heals/dispels and aoes follow this rule I was wondering if this was a mistake in particular for the root skill.
