This AA needs to be looked at, not only is it very difficult to get the CA's off in order and in time to trigger then hit this spell (especially in lag), but its duration of 2.0 seconds isn't high enough anymore now that we are using higher delay weapons.  On top of that it doesn't crit.

Agree on all counts.  With server-side lag in a raid zone or heroic instance, it can literally be impossible to get all the needed CAs off and then hit combo while it's up.  It should also crit.  With 100% crit and high crit bonus, the damage amount of the ability is once again slipping backward into irrelevance.

Perhaps the timer should happen client side, instead of server side? I've had cases where the icon lights up but won't activate because the timer has expired on the server, and other times I can press Combination even though the server hasn't sent the command to show the hotbutton is usable.

In addition, there needs to be a listing (tooltip, help menu item, etc) of what Monk Combat Art counts as a Kick, a Jab, and a Punch so you don't have to refer to external websites just to understand how your abilities work.

SOE should make it easier to use, up the duration to 5 seconds, increase the hits to 5 and make it raidwide!

its not a tooltip I guess but look at your monk tree its shows you.

kicks

Roundhouse

Rising Phoenix

Rising Dragon

Jabs

Waking Dragon

Five Rings

Silent Palm

Punches

Frozen Palm

Striking Cobra

Arctic Talon

And yes i agree Combo needs ot be able ot Crit. and the duration should be increased due to how most of us are using 4.0 delay weapons now.

Combination also is reflectable, which none of our other CAs are.  To make matters worse, it reflects for like 70-80k or something.  Clearly a very bugged ability.

We have other abilities that can be reflected.
