Disarmed is the state of being without your main hand weapon. This occurs when a mob or other player disarms you using abilities such as [Disarm], [Riposte], [Snatch], or [Dismantle]. You will be without your weapon for several seconds and unable to use any abilities that require a main hand weapon.

In Classic, being disarmed also temporarily makes you use the Unarmed weapon skill.
