The player affected won't be able to use spells that don't cause damage, so this includes heals/buffs, or pure debuffs/crowd control powers. Although not the same, this power has a similar effect to the Warlock power Darkness, in that it stops a player from buffing himself.

This spell is a conjurer-killer as it pretty much disables them for a fairly long duration. However they can be protected by the spell Divine Intervention. For this reason it's important for conjurers to keep each other under DI whenever they might be exposed. Failing that, it can be dispelled by other mages.

The archer must keep his guard up when using this against warlocks, since there is no way to know how the enemy cooldowns are going. If timed with bad luck, one can force the warlock into an offensive spree (something they are quite capable of) and actually lose the battle by receiving too many damage spells. Sometimes it's better to just let the warlock attack and learn its pattern, then use a Crowd Control when it's necessary. Confuse can be double-edged in these cases.

Like Darkness, this power is also a great tool to prevent an archer to escape using Son of the Wind and Mobility.

Casting confuse on a target while they are casting a non-damaging spell will not cancel the casting of that spell.[1]
