  • Visually this skill-spell is similar to the Magick Archer bow spell Vortex Trail, but the effect is much weaker and slower, and seems limited mostly to the edges of the spell's field.
  • The area of effect and pulling power increases with each skill tier.
  • Works on most giant enemies only if their limbs are not bigger than the skill's radius, although giant enemies can occasionally escape using jump/lunge/charge on the sigil's edge.
    • Chimera can escape by pouncing on the player.
    • Lich are pulled into the sigil but levitate at their usual elevation.
    • Death can escape the sigil by teleporting.
  • Casting Vortex Sigil on a bridge or cliff can pull bigger creatures to the edge and cause them to fall.
  • Effective in combination with Ruinous Sigil, even more so when both are combined at the same place as a Great Cannon sigil.
  • Decaying Grimoire casts a spell similar to Funnel Sigil.
  • It is not known if Funnel Sigil's relatively long duration is intended or a minor bug.
