Lethion.8745 Posted December 29, 2021 Share Posted December 29, 2021 (edited) It was one of the most fun, unique and flavoursome builds I've ever played in GW2, before it was over-buffed... Why didn't they just revert the buffs instead of completely reworking the traits and removing the build entirely? It was doing just fine before the buffs. Not too good, not too bad, just fine... Adding unnecessary amount of damage to those traits was a massive mistake. Those traits were never meant to be used in a DPS build. They were parts of the CC focused playstyle of Chronomancer. The DPS traits were supposed be the middle ones... Now that playstyle is completely gone. 1.5 second Slow on CC is ridiclous. Slow just goes off by the time CC ends. What is the point of slowing someone who is already CC'ed? It also has 3 seconds internal CD for some reason, as if anyone will be able to spam it without the CD. And Lost Time. Oh boy... I can play 4 classes as my main in PvP and if anyone have ever asked me what is the weakest trait you've ever seen in the entire game, I would say Lost Time. (Edit: Nvm, I've remembered this exists.) That trait is just so bad. Even if Chrono had perma Slow application, I can't imagine anyone chosing to use it over Chronophantasma or Seize The Moment. Danger Time on the other hand, is not bad on it's own but it suffers from the fact that Chrono can't apply it's own Slow anymore. Since every other trait which were part of the Slowterrupt build were also nerfed, I see no problem with reverting Lost Time to it's first pre-buff iteration(2 second Slow after 5 crit hits). You can increase internal CD if you need to, or you can nerf Danger Time, as much as you want. In fact, I wish it was extending Slow duration instead of adding crit chance since as I said, Slow shouldn't be used for damage, it only causes problems. It could be something like 'Slow you apply has increased duration based on your Precision.' It would also make Delayed Reactions more useful. Pls ANet.
