That makes sense.I feel like the 2 seconds linger on it is a bit low in hectic BG games, not to mention that its going to hit with a 1 sec delay, with your next light attack. In pvp you often have to react to what your opponent is doing as fast as possible so thats a huge negative.
I used crystal weapon for a while (the sorc equivalent) and even there i felt like a real spammable would be better in 90% of situations. (in settings up burst combos crystal weapon is awesome, but sadly the psijic equivalent is a bit weaker due to that short 2 sec linger)
For example in games where i have it in my death recap, its usually nightblade gankers who used it, and it's been a while since I saw it in my death recap...
I like that idea.Agree the 2 second timer is too short. Wish they would bump it up to 4 seconds like crystal weapon but not allow it to stack with other bonus tied to light attack. Also tried it on in PVP and it works on ranged characters but not so much on melee.
Stay safe and happy hunting
I hear you completely.i'm not a fan of imbued weapon because it is a very unrewarding clunky skill that translates to:
'Cast 1 skill that does nothing unless you quickly cast another attack (that may be impacted by lag or need to do other actions) if it works you get a bigger number.'
longer cooldown seems like a nice idea, it makes it more meaningful rather than just part of a spam rotation.
My latest Mag Sorc BG damage build uses Crystal Frags. No Crushing Shock or Elemental Weapon.
Crystal Frags does
The only downside is the cast time leaves you open to spell interruption and makes it difficult to chase players around pillars.
- more damage
- easier to utilize proc
- saves a skill slot
- gives Minor Prophecy to group
- heals you w/ Blood Magic passive every cast
If another Mag Sorc spams Crushing Shock then it can be quite frequently. But I don't see that too often.how often are you interrupted?
