    This has effectively buried another template. Why not look at delays on Magery solo or in in groups casting fields ebolts ev's. Better yet curse weapon amour ignore strangle ALL KILL etc where you cannot cast Magery or Dexers attack or use your pets against an opponent for 16 seconds between any buff see how folks respond to that change.

    Actually the delay appears be delay is 30 seconds not 16 counting when its tossed.

    Seriously? :lol:

    Thats your template? You run around chucking pots at people? rolleyes:
     
  3. If throwing potions is a template...

    Carrying 50 potions has always urked me. Makes no sense. I say increase the damage, have a few have a chance of exploding in your pack and that is the cost of the expo template.

    You can do a lot of damage as an extra toss but one could blow up on you.

    I think you should be able to do pots as fast as we can click 'em. When the timer was added, i quit carrying any & then sold all my kegs. We also need to be able to machine gun spells just like monsters.

    Do you run around firing arrows at people?

    Conflag pots are the nerf to 30 sec so far explodes are not effected.

    The ones that use alchemy on their templates understand. Actually it was a very effective compliment to any template but as with other skills you have to drop another skill to use it now its nerfed so bad that its not worth keeping it pvm or pvp. Delays are understandable but 30 seconds come on please inform me other skills or action that have a 30 second delay between execution .

    See the problem with your chucking pots template is that it was abused for so long that people couldnt take it anymore.

    Blame all your script running buddies for this fix.

    Which I actually disagree with. 30 seconds seems long.

    How will I push despise island now? lol

    Granted, there's a slight degree of difference in potency.

    Not really, with a level 6 focus its like 90 physical for attunment and 14 HP every 2 seconds with gift of renewal.

    But if you want to talk about timers in game.
    Spell Trigger, Evasion, Apples, Heal pots, Healing Stone, Orc Brute. I'm sure there are others, but I cant think of them right now.

    Conflags have to have a timer. If not raiding a spawn would be so easy. throw 800 conflags and cast essance of wind and Hailstorm. you could take out swarms of people like that.

    Was looking for players opinions on delay of execution of certain skill or actions.

    For instance excessive 30 sec or more delays on trowing conflag pots. There are other very damaging spells or actions that carry little delay. For instance fields ebolts curse weapon and so on. Some have NO delays.

    Notably opinions will vary hopefully with some chance of clarity on the issue .

    Conflagration potions have always had a 30 second delay since the day they were introduced.
