Lifeweaver’s Life Grip is a particularly unique ability in that it allows you to outright move an enemy around without any input from them. This can be used to pull allies out of a sticky situation or to reset before a large fight. His Parting Gift ability is another polarizing effect that can swing a combat encounter in either direction depending on who’s able to grab it.
