Suggestion: Normalize Hide In Shadows?


Therys.4368

Recommended Posts

May I suggest normalizing Hide In Shadows to remove Torment as well?Both Acrobatic trait Pain Response and Shadow Arts trait Shadow's Embrace removes all damaging conditions including Torment.

However, torment removal is in Withdraw even though it is not a movement-impairing condition.

Torment removal is not in-Roll for Initiative-Daredevil trait Dash-Acrobatics trait Don't Stop

Is there a balance reason I don't know about for having it this way?

tl;dr: Can Torment removal be moved from Withdraw to Hide in Shadows?

One could stretch that rationale, yes. Its just strange to me how this is at odds with every other trait or ability that has this partial clear (Either clears damaging type conditions, or a movement condition) like Elementalist Windborne Speed, Engineer Rocket Boots, Overcharged Shot.

@BlaqueFyre.5678 said:Uhm Torment is technically a movement impairing effect, if not cleansed players tend to move less because of having Torment on them....plus Withdraw Tooltip doesn't state it only removes Movement Impairing Conditions, it states it removes Conditions.

I'm not complaining about the tool-tip. Just the inconsistency.

Its not something worth a big tizzle about though. If no one cares I'll drop the issue.

No, it just does more damage when moving since June 2015.https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Torment

ETA: The buffed withdraw to remove torment actually - no explanation given and that very condition is broken af anyway.
