    I can't fathom why they would make shatters require clones but not increase their survivability. They also nerfed MW damage and made CS start when the clones are shattered instead of when you press the button (intended I guess?) It's like they wanted to bring chrono in line but overworked their developers to the point that they royally botched the implementation. Was it Anet's plan to make playing chrono feel this awful? Who knows, it's not like they're going to reply to the community. I'd be amazed if the dev team reads any of these threads.

    I like that change ! new breath for another supports or combo. Why not?
    Some people stack in chrono jail - time to wake up, try other builds and etc.
    I tied for long waiting for qbf, so any mesmer nerf is like legendary gift.

    I feel the same way. You destroyed chrono. This is something completely different. Why would after so many years since chrono came out with HoT you go and do something like this? It makes no sense. And why only add this illusion restriction to chrono and not mirage? This nerf constant to the core and HoT specializations is to force us to play the crappy PoF classes. It's been like that since all the "balance" updates started after PoF came out. If you want us to play PoF classes, you should stop changing core game classes and HoT classes and focus on making the PoF stuff more attractive by itself, not by destroying the other specializations.

    Pretty sure anet is gonna give all core classes F5 skills and elite wont have access to those

    That was done with engineer and revenant. So revs are like "we lose F2 so no trade off!" .

    Yeah, why chrono? Mirage have this problem of infinite invulnerability, not chrono. This change should be made for mirage, not chrono.

    Because people still play Chrono, taking away the monopoly of support roles occupied by their pet classes, Guards and Revs.

    I don't know I haven't played Chrono since HoT, but during this time in fractals I almost never used shatters before I had clones up. There were some emergency situations where I had to use distortion to prevent damage, but other than that, I always maxed the clones out to go for full effect.

    Isn't the whining - like always - totally over the top overdriven?

    If you ask this maybe you don't have enough chrono experience.
    First off 4 clone shatter is better than 3 clone shatter. The new shatters are the same and f1 is even worse than the core counterpart.
    When you used CS you could still shatter yourself with the other Fs.
    Without IP shattering is now clunker, slower and more predictable.
    Some combos are dead, some of which are the base of mesmer profession.

    Ah yes, you can't self shatter, too. No, I really haven't played Chrono since HoT times, so I forgot a lot. Shame.
