<Custom Apply Effect>
// Sets the counter on the state to 5.
user.setStateCounter(stateId, 5);
// Determine the damage of the roots being cut.
user._thornBindDmg = origin.mat * 2;
// Determine the maximum cap of the damage.
user._thornBindDmg = Math.min(user._thornBindDmg, 1000);
</Custom Apply Effect>

<Custom Deselect Effect>
// Get the result of the target.
var result = target.result();
// Check if the target is hit, alive, the action is physical, and dealing damage.
if (result.isHit() && !target.isDead() && this.isPhysical() && this.isDamage()) {
  // Play animation on target.
  // Get the amount of damage dealt.
  var dmg = target._thornBindDmg || 1;
  // Make the target lose HP.
  // Disable critical hit effects.
  target.result().critical = false;
  // Start the damage popup.
  // Clear the result.
  // Change the counter on the state to drop by 1.
  target.addStateCounter(stateId, -1);
  // Check if the counter has reached 0.
  if (target.getStateCounter(stateId) <= 0) {
    // Remove the state.
</Custom Deselect Effect>
