Now, if we look back to the very old days of achaea, there were very few if any "Time based afflictions" This seemed to be the case because acahea was a very well rounded system with a ton of checks and balances. Everything had it's place and purpose.
However, as Blademasters made their way into achaea, we saw some changes. Changes that included Sylvans getting a timed anti-parry, but that seemed alright for the time. Now alchemists also have many time based attacks with a slight chance of mitigation. I don't feel like timed attacks really have any place in achaea, but here they are.
I many other things have been "timed" for a long time, from vibes to harmonics, gravehands, rites, all that stuff. Those were timed, but they were more like a passive offence or passive defence. The stuff blademasters and alchemists can pull off are to an extent harmless, but because of the "time" factor they seem much more potent with groups.
Just curious to see what the community has to say on the time based afflictions. I say, do away with them, they truly have no place here. But that's just me. What do you think about these, achaea? and what do you think a viable solution is?
