Greetings!

Recently noticed this strange occurrence which is now a constant on my No-Pet MagSorc.

Drinking/Using a potion clears/resets the Critical Surge ability timer. Every time.

Has anyone else noticed/reported this? I can't imagine why this change would occur intentionally.

Cheers,
~Samich~

    I believe it's because the ability timer is tied to the buff (Major Sorcery/Brutality) rather than the skill itself. When something refreshes the buff it provides it clears the timer. Unfortunately this isn't the only skill with this issue. Degeneration, Swarm (and morphs), and Expansive Frost Cloak are examples of other skills that run into this issue as well. It's fun watching your ability timer on Swarm go to like 36 seconds when someone procs Nazaray. :D

    Interesting. However, it's unfortunate because it means re-casting skills early to maintain the other benefits (e.g. heals on crits).

    Greetings,

    After further review we have decided to move this thread to a category we think is more appropriate for this topic, as it's asking the community for assistance.

    Thank you for your understanding
