Temporal Chains is a spell that curses all targets in an area, slowing them and making all temporary effects on them expire slower.

Skill Functions and Interactions

  • The slow effect of Temporal Chains is capped at 75%.
  • The expiration effect is capped at 75%.
  • Duration: Temporal Chains will make temporary effects 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. (note: The more slowly expiry is affected by modifiers, that increase or reduce the curse effect. The duration of Temporal Chains is calculated without these modifiers and can be changed this way). Damage over time debuffs will expire more slowly, but will cause the same amount of damage per second they normally would.[1] Likewise, life recovery effects, such as leech and flasks, will also expire more slowly while healing for the same amount of life per second.
