View Full Version : Short Term Buff durations

<DIV>Starting off, I want to thank you guys for the change a few patches back that increased single target short term buffs from 3 to 15 minutes, and short term group buffs to 10.  For small grouping, this has been a boon to my Illusioninst who was otherwise just round robin-ing breeze and alacrity non-stop.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>With that being said, I'm a little confused on your intention for the timers on these buffs.  Now that mentoring is in, we've been raiding more, and even 15 minutes on these buffs in a raid group seems short.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I personally am not sure what you are trying to accomplish with these shorter duration buffs, so without that knowledge, I'd really like to see the timers on these increased still.  Sometihng along the line of illusion buffs are nice (2 hours).  In EQ1 buffs lasted the raid duration (or atleast long enough to get you through a milestone or two).  Rebuffing mid combat isn't something I would prefer to do, so I'd like to ask you guys to consider changing it.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Thanks.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<DIV>I agree with this poster.  Now I do love the fact that as a guardian my buffs last 10 minutes instead of 5 or whatever insanely short time it was.  But I have to admit still having to rebuff high power costing buffs every 10 minutes gets annoying and a bit tedious.   Basically meaning I have to wait 20-30 extra seconds before I engage a mob.  I personally would just love having these buffs last 30 minutes.  Would just make it a little less annoying <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>
