View Full Version : Evil Recast timers!

<DIV>I realize this is posted on many many other spots, but I just want to rant and see who will join my crusade! Not to mention if there's another place I should put my complaint.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>So now all spells of the same "type" seem to be on the same recast timer. In short, it seems to me that at least half of the spells I keep up because while they're pretty crappy, I can cast my pristine spell, then cast my crappy spell as a followup while waiting for the pristine timer... No. Gone. Naturally this annoys me most with Mesmerize. I'm getting my next mez in a level, and that's going to do no good to me whatsoever. All this time of waiting for another mez to offset the 8 second recast time has gone to waste. Fascinate is officially retired and only worth using if I dont have enough power to cast Mesmerize (which I doubt will happen often). The fun of being a Coercer is quickly leaving me... </DIV>

<DIV>Can someone confirm that the only spells / combat arts that are linked are the ones earned from "Training"? I logged off in a huff before I actually checked out other stuff. (Yes, I'll admit that as a rash mistake on my part)</DIV>

First, dont feel too bad because fascinate will retire once you hit about lvl 25. Mobs will just be "Too high level". <a href="http://eqiiforums.station.sony.com/eq2/board/message?board.id=news_announcements&message.id=88#M88" target="_blank">Read this post about the recast timers, it was not intended YAYYY!!</a>The training ability you got WAS meant to replace your mez spell though. It is basically my mesmerize spell but 10 seconds longer.
