    Generally no, but if they result in higher DMG then ok I'll deal. But if something like force pulse is only 2k less than a cast timed higher avoidable spell, then I think there's major outdated issues with cast times lol.

    its very old and lame and people actually think that means they are skilled by doing setups "like" that.

    That is with dawnbreaker, only an ultimate, so would you say it's only for ultimate?

    only for ultimates? yes.
    for other skills like shields and healings and invisibility?
    NO, that would destroy people defenses.

    best in slot: is the armor, weapon, clothing look, pet, or no pet, jewelry, race, class, skill choices, amount of DPS, and skin color best fit to you and the way you wish to play and makes you feel good and performs what YOU think it should be.

    worst in slot: what you read in zone chat, and forum comment, and forum thread, and you tube video, and live streamer advice, and class rep advice, and guild chat advice, and whisper told you to wear, and use for skill, and dress like, and use for weapon and armor.

    For ults? No.

    For skills like dizzy? sure. Bit of a risk/ reward with them.

    So it would be fine without the lag and ping?


    What exactly do you have against animation cancelling.

    I think niche sets like Soulshine or Light of Cyrodiil shouldn't be erased. If all the skills become instant cast then there's no point for those sets.

    Stamina should also get some sets that benefit from cast time skills.

    Regarding ultis, all ultis should be instant cast

    If they can solve the animation canceling bug, sure I can understand cast times. However, when you have a game where weaving have become a "feature", cast time sucks.

    The reason I love ESO’s combat is the speed and cast times take that away. I don’t mind it for things like Channeled Acceleration as I do it once every thirty seconds for a good buff, but for other abilities it just slows combat and makes it dull (and makes it handle like trash).

    Yeah, liked them on wow and lotro, as it comes to a slower pace of playing. Must admit that ESO style is fun and fast, and it doesnt really fit the channeled with a good DPS.

    Obvious the opinions are devided between pve and pvp players... im pve only and im really losing interest in this game more and more... i don't want to quit, but adding cast times, destroying the allready *** sustain, nerfing ***, not fixing 5 year old bugs... enough is enough..its just the little push i need to unsub for a while.

    Intentionally making combat less responsive is bad, and I have no *** idea why people want it. Cast times have next to no place in ESO's combat system, especially with performance being as bad as it is. Good luck landing a Dizzying Swing with 300 ping while moving around a lot.

    Trick question. Yes for PvP because it allows counter-play. No for PvE because they feel bad to use.

    Except for Dizzying Swing where, I like the cast time, which is justifyied with high burst and stun. Cast time on this ability makes it a high risk high reward ability. EsO generaly lacks these abilities.

    I kinda like cast time on Dark Flare as well.

    But, I am also glad they removed cast time from Blood Altar.

    Cast time on ultimates is plain wrong IMO.

    If cast times are going to stick around on Ultimates, then every Ultimate in the game needs to have a reason for it to be slotted.

    Incap, for example, got Minor Reave as a bonus for slotting it. Not terribly powerful, fits the theme of the class, etc. So give every other Ultimate a little Minor bonus like that for slotting it. Something unique to the classes, or the skill lines from which the Ultimate comes from.

    Dawnbreaker - Added damage (all damage) against Daedra/Undead/etc. for having it slotted. This makes it worth slotting in situations where the majority of your targets are going to meet those types.

    Berserker Strike - Since this is from a weapon skill line, maybe a small weapon damage bonus.. or an added bonus to the weapon line passives.. or anything else that fits the 2H theme.

    Rend - extra critical chance on DW DoTs? I really don't know.

    But you see the point I'm getting at.

    ... because dawnbreaker does not justify it with high burst and stun.
