Vortex incorrect spell explanation.

So, I made an alt seeker to level my AA and LA characters that have more trouble than the HA characters do in PV.  I always try to stat the mag up a bit for the vortex to hold over long durations of me pulling to the death whorl.   I hadn't checked it in a while to see the mana cost and when I did I reread the spell explanation.  When I did, I realized why so many newer seeker players have such trouble understanding why the vortex dies on them easily even with charm (if they don't pot mana).

See my SS.   Could GM's go in and change this skill to read correctly as I say in the SS? Just to help newer players a bit...  :D

Im sure this is the same thing on PWI main servers. I dont think Aga can change anything to do with skills (I could be wrong) But most players hould know its mana that ticks as it says earlier in the description 'XXXX amount of mana used per second' And Vortex should pretty much never drop since you are always charmed. (Never had Vortex drop on my seeker unless I cancelled it or was interupted.

Yeah lol

Just noticed it today and remembered my first experience as a seeker a year ago and figured if it can be changed it may spare others from my facepalm-able confusion as a noob seeker a year ago.

Either way most people will probably be more observant than me and catch the real meaning of the explanation.

Over here they might be able to change it but that is how it is even in pwi as well, so good luck on that

Pretty sure there is another description error on vortex aswell regarding mana drain. We already know about this though.

While you're already there, can you fix description on Infinite weapon effect? Many people think it's useless 'cause 50 chi effect is written as mana.
