You wouldn't have to do anything to the Spiritwrath prestige ability as far as increasing the duration of the debuff etc if you would just change the spell used to Imprecate, which has a 1.5 second recast, which makes the duration on the debuff effect more than enough time.

Imprecate takes even longer to cast.  And with all the different control effects in encounters, the duration itself is way too short to lose something so tedious to maintain every 10s.

You make it sound like it takes ten seconds to cast or something. In all honestly, I understand time is precious when you're in an encounter but as far as control effects go etc, that's why there's this thing called Voice of the Ancestors. One second to cast every ten seconds sounds near perfect to me, I mean I don't recall exactly what the debuff is but stacked ten times, it's better than either of our stat debuffs, and if not then it's pretty close. It's a good mechanic as a whole, just the wrong ability to use it on like most of the other people have said.

You act like you couldn't cast wrath better than imprecate, when imprecate takes twice as long to cast.  If it was that important to you, you'd cast it every 10s.  You know that little thing called VoA only helps on curable things once a minute and you realize if you had to use it, you've already been interrupted in casting something.  Ten seconds is a ridiculous tedious amount of time to maintain a debuff and you're wanting to put it on an even longer casting spell yet keep the duration.

Because the actual issue is Wrath's recast being 5 seconds, which means you actually only have 5 seconds to cast the spell to reapply the debuff effect. So .5 vs. 1 second cast time is small compared to the 1.5 second recast to 5 second recast, which is the part that actually matters. So yes, as tedious as you think it might be, casting Imprecate instead of Wrath is in fact more beneficial for the said effect.
