Disorient is a debilitating effect which briefly stuns a target. The stun ends as soon as the target takes damage. You can also get out by using the Break Free ability. It can be caused by a number of attacks, though the most common one is by interrupting a spell-caster in mid-cast, most easily with a Bash attack.
