Psychic's buffs - cooldown

Hi! :)

Playing psychic I usually find myself in situation when Soul of Silence and Soul of Vengance disappeared and I'm unable to cast them again for about a minute long. It's pretty annoying as usually the time when psychic run without buffs is the time when he is attacked. ;) Beeing able to cast them again would be handy a lot.

Both of those buffs have 10 minutes duration as well as 10 minutes cast cooldown. As I sow in original PW forum there are also people who experience the same (buff dissapeared, cooldown still didn't expired) and they think that it's becouse of lag during enter different maps (when cooldown of skill is freezed?).

Is it possible to lower cooldown of those skills a little bit?

I know that in the new horizon patch the buffs have a much shorter cooldown. I'm not sure if agatio is going to incorporate this into the new patch but I do believe its a minute cooldown there or something like that with the new patch.

I have the same problem as you and hope that it's fixed with the new patch, having a shorter cool down and all. :)

I would be so happy! :D

But even if for example shorting cooldown won't be possible here - maybe to make connect between buff duration and buff cooldown not only at the beginning, but also at the end (starting of buff duration and cooldown are the same and connected at the beginning, so to make make buff duration dependant on cooldown - to expire of the buff when the cooldown expire too). Or something like that

I doubt this is worth the effort by the devs to implement if it's already included in horizons.

As for tieing it to the duration, I don't think the game engine would support that.

Are you sure that it's in new horizons? On PWI they aren't self buff only so that would be kinda OP

they are not self buff on EPW aswell - lately I seen some barbs with psy buffs. Got no idea how, but it's possible to buff other players on EPW with psy buffs  :-[

There is some misunderstanding in here. Soul of Stunning and Soul of Retailation are self buffs only. We don't discuss about them here.

We talk about Soul of Silence and Soul of Vengance.
And yes, it is normal that SoS and SoV can be cast on anyone ( = who can handle mana cost of each successful protection) but it means that in the same time psychic can't wear those buffs when any other person wears buffs from him. He can cast it only on one person - himself OR any other, till buff expire. So psychics sometimes cast it on any else usually only in pve (when psychic is feeling safe and tank takes most of all damage); not in situations when he is also attacked all of the time like in pvp.

Yes it's normal on retail but from what I know they're edited here so you can't cast them on other players.

Maybe the lower level skills aren't edited, for example level 8 soul of silence?

I am lazy dig trough patch notes so maybe it was on another server where psy sos and sov was changed only to self buff only. But last half year dont seen any sin and barb with sos and sov, so was sure on epw sos and sov also only self buff. My mistake, sorry :(

Pardon guys! :D

Soul of Vengeance can be cast on anybody else still, Soul of Silence only self buff (but in description still as buff to share). It's for sure, I checked it a minute ago. :D
(mine are lvl 10 both, I was stupid to lvl them before I knew there is no lvl 11 of those skills in this server)
