I know it's far fetched that ZoS will look at this post and say "HEY put those skills in the game", but here's a thread for wishful thinking. I'm just starting this post to see what skill players would want to add if they had the power to add any skill to the game.
For example: I wish there was a skill that caused AOE confusion that would reverse the direction controls for players affected for 5 seconds. I've seen this in action before and it's overpowered vs the new people that haven't dealt with it a lot but it's just 1 sec of confusion for someone that's dealt with it multiple times. Experienced players will just realize they are going backwards and they are affected by that skill and reverse their control input (up is down and left is right) for 4 sec getting that timing perfect so it doesn't effect their pvp. The skill should have a bit of cool down (1min) so it doesn't drive people nuts.
I loved this because it gives expereinced players an ability to counter with skill and experience vs the new people that have good builds but no skill that will just rage and be confused. This adds a whole new element because people lose their targets and lose focus on healers and healers lose focus on players they're healing; it causes chaos for the people who don't recognize the skill is being used or don't know how to counter it. For Mobs, the skill would just fear them for a couple of seconds.
What would be your idea for a skill? After we get enough skills I was thinking or editing the post and making a vote for which skill people like best.
