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% unless a value of 100% or higher is achieved. Upon reaching 100% (curse effectiveness of +150%), temporary effects will never expire.
  • 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.

Version history

Version Changes
2.6.0
  • Increased Area of Effect mod and its progression per level doubled.
2.1.0c
  • Temporal Chains, Enfeeble, Curse on Hit and Blasphemy have had their quality bonuses returned to normal.
  • A cap of 75% now applies to the action speed reduction caused by Temporal Chains.
2.1.0c
  • Temporal Chains quality now grants 0.5% increased Cast Speed per point of quality instead of slowing enemies by 0.5% per point of quality.
2.0.2
  • Temporal Chains' slowing effect now applies multiplicatively with Chill's slowing effect. This will result in less of an impact when both are used on the same target.
2.0.0
  • Mana cost reduced at all levels. Area of effect increases per gem level reduced, but the base area of effect has been increased by 37.5% (from 16 to 22). Duration increases per level slightly modified. The end result is slightly longer duration at level 1 but slightly shorter duration at level 20.
0.10.0
  • Fixed a bug where chilling monsters or cursing them with Temporal Chains could
    prevent their attacks from succeeding.
0.9.13
  • Reduced the effect of Temporal Chains, due to being overpowered in both PvE and PvP.
    This also affects the version that Maps inflict on you
0.9.12
  • The quality bonuses have been corrected to not include movement speed,
    as it is already part of the core effect.
0.9.4
  • Reduced the duration.
0.9.2
  • Temporal Chains has been added to the game.
