    Do you know how many people use trapped boxes to negate the effect? All they have to do is pop the box (some people magically insta box) and then they're immune to it for 26 seconds... The timer paired up with a box makes it completely useless. Understand?

    that and most monsters in pvm seem to cast their spells instantly anyway, i dont really see how the new sleep has any effect on spell casting monsters.

    The timer I agree should go away ! The boxes will never go away boxes they are here to stay!
    they have been here for as long as I can remember if you think you can get them changed more power to you!

    I have been messing with this a lot and I have noticed a difference for sure with non spell casters! and a slight slow down in casting speed for the casters! the duration seems to short and the 26 seconds is way to long! in my opinion!

    Abolish the sleep timer; that's my vote.

    This is what is going live on origin today!

    • Immunity has been changed to the following scale, 3-12 second scaling by player Magic Resist skill. Player must have 30 or more resist to extent sleep immunity beyond 3 seconds.

    3 second immunity and still gets instant tboxes out?

    Why couldnt they put a damage threshold? Leave the immunity 3 to 12 second if you want but make it so you have to do at least 20 damage to break out of the effect... as it is at ZERO (0) resist skill versus 120 Mysticism/120 Focus legendary mystics... you sleep they insta-tbox... for the next 3 seconds they are running away in straight line and they are gone and if you get to catch them and slept them again *pop tbox again* take 4 dmg... peace out im gone... :confused:

    There is a damage threshold for breaking out of sleep.

    How about pvm? How does it really effect them other than nerfing the spell even more than it is nerfed already? Really if you going to have something changed to increase pvp value please put a different change for pvm value. The both should not be mutually inclusive. Do monsters even have dci or fc or swing speed. They don't seem to have any limits you know.
