The aura version of Temporal Chains
"This useful curse warps a small area of space and actually causes time to pass slower within its confines. Any beings who pass through the affected zone will become snared in the warp, slowing their actions to a crawl."
— Description on the official Path of Exile website[1]

Temporal Chains is a curse that makes time pass more slowly for all targets in its area. They will move, attack and cast at a reduced speed, and effects on them will expire more slowly.

Skill Functions and Interactions

Duration: Temporal Chains will make any effect which has a duration on the cursed pass more slowly than it normally would, including itself. The Duration listed is already modified to take this into account, so the listed duration on the skill isn't actually changed. Included in this list are: other curses, warcries, status ailments, debuffs and other effects caused by skills such as Wither and Viper Strike, and even beneficial effects such as frenzy charges. Health degeneration debuffs will expire more slowly, but will cause the same amount of damage per second they normally would.
