Grab is a status effect in ACS. It is usually unblockable, and freezes the afflicted player in place (even if they are in the air at the time they are afflicted by Grab) for a short period of time, in which the opponent moves the player around and/or does damage based upon the Arte being used to initiate the Grab status. A Grabbed character usually depicts a sprite that is hurt or writhing in pain.
Causes of GrabEdit
Grabs are usually inflicted by mystic artes so that the character cannot move as the animation for the mystic arte occurs.
