Choke appeared as an ability in the original version. At the initial release, Choke was a spell learned by Conjurers at rank 12 and cost 3 action points to set. The ability inflicted wind-elemental damage over time and also reduced wind magic defense to all enemies within an area of effect. After the release of patch 1.20, Choke; along with its upgrade Choke II, became unusable by any class.

After the release of patch 1.20, Choke and Choke II became unusable by any class.
