A few months ago they updated the Illusionists, removing their passive power and rewarding active play and effort. This I thought was GREAT and something they should do, but this modification left the specialization of Inspiration (the one that is focused on support, as all classes have at least one) useless and careless.
...and I ask: Does anyone occupy the specialization of Inspiration without a Chronomancer?
If it "works" moderately, it is because it is supported by means of Chronomancer. What's more, with Cronomante and other specializations (but without inspiration) you can cure and buff your team, while applying cc and help, allowing to be powerful solo, but not fully reaching "support".
In contrast, Inspiration alone (without Chronomancer) takes away a lot of strength, making you depend on your team (instead of being a Supp that can "fend for itself" while helping), specifically the 3 key-traits (those that do not can be changed), that force you to specific and limited builds, without a satisfactory result and leaving you useless at the time of being alone.
Really that specialization needs an update, or to change it for another (and better Chronoman to support), although I would prefer the first and return to have a powerful Inspiration (and I have the 9 classes focused on support ... but it is the only one that " suddenly "no longer performs as before).
