Disorient, previously called Confusion, and more rarely referred to as Mesmerize, is an incapacitating crowd control effect which prevents the target from taking any action for a certain period of time, although, unlike stuns, disorient effects do break on damage. They cause the target to wander about in a confused fashion for the duration of the effect. This makes disorient effects different from sleep and other incapacitate effects under which the target doesn't move.
