With distortion being removed on chronomancer is in a very bad spot imo, not to mention that you are now required to have atleast 1 illusion to even shatter in the first place. So why not take the same idea behind Rewinder: "This skill replaces and inherits traits from Cry of Frustration. This skill deals damage and inflicts confusion for each clone shattered. Additionally, it recharges itself by 5 seconds for each clone shattered." And insert that into Continuum Split except make it 15 seconds instead of 5 per each clone shattered? Therefore if CS is 105 seconds, if you shatter with max illusions it's now a 60 second cd. Straight up removing a shatter "in this case distortion" has way more negative implications to chrono than you even realize.
So why not? With this change CS comes within a 10 second cooldown of distortion was before it got removed in the first place. And if you spec into illusions with Master of misdirection your CS becomes a 89 second cooldown base and 44 second cooldown after shattering with max illusions if you imply the same idea I gave above " 15 second cooldown reduction per illusion shattered" which would honestly make chrono fun again imo. 1 second welfare distortion on cs? threshold 1 illusion to shatter? NOBODY is going to go near chrono without a change like this. You might as well hang chrono up in a museum because because that's the only place starting tomorrow that it's going to be in the spotlight.
