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.

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 doubled. Included in this list are: other curses, Status Ailments, debuffs and other effects caused by skills such as Poison Arrow 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.
