    Default Phiarlan Pendant of Time: It's time to change this...

    The "Tendon Slice" effect that afflicts our characters while activating this is just ridiculous.

    It's ONLY usable in Public Zones for Lolthsakes!

    It's a Favor Reward we had to work for so why the lonnnnnnngngngngngngngngngngngn cast time?

    It really needs to be an inta-cast clicky like Jump or Shield.

    Or add another House P Favor Reward level thats gives an "Improved Phiarlan Pendant of Time" that does behave like an inst-cast clicky instead of the (seemingly) ETERNALLY LONG cast time (that gets used up without the effect happening if your toon has to climb over a 3" tall landscape feature during casting).
    I am often cynical and say mean things. It's a WAI "Feature".

    Yeah, I'd thought along the same lines... why even have an object... make it like the SF Blessing and just be a buff that is on you whenever you are in a public space.

    /signed, I hate it when I hitch while clicking it and lose the charge. Maybe insta will make that less common.

    Totally interested in seeing a QoL fix with this.

    At a minimum, I would like it to be activated from inventory rather than required to be worn. Stop stealing my cunning trinket sp's!

    Default ^^^^ Yeah!

    1) Finish Quest.
    2) Finish Out.
    3) Equip PoT
    4) Run to Air Ship/Tavern and Equip Cunning Trinket or VPiS (for lower levels)
    5) Buy drink from Tavern Keep
    6) Beat down dummy while SP regen.

    /sigh

    It gets old. I mean we *do* have Dungeon Alert to "slow" us down right?

    They should just remove the item and make it a permanent buff that applies whenever you are in town.

    What I was going to say, pretty much to the letter.

    Have to go along with this idea since it's doable now.
    Maybe when the Pendant was first introduced it was beyond the capability of the gamecode, but should be good to go now.

    If they make a change to this, they should look at the entirety of house P and J favor rewards as the pendant is the best thing in both combined (who actually uses the 30 min buffs anymore?)

    this.

    It's an item, you chug it once a life, get another and put it in your TR bank.

    Those of us without a high level guild?
    Most times I just use my stack of potions from the 12 and don't bother running to J.
    Yet the pots can be dispelled.

    it takes 4 seconds to cast it. I wouldn't call that a lonnnnnggggggggggngngngngn cast time. im not against a insta click, but its not like it takes very long to get anywhere in public places anyways.

    Bending time to your will should take some effort.

    And if it's an granted effect they will do it like the SF favor and you will have to earn it each life - boo on that.

    I always laugh when people get grumpy about losing 4 seconds of their life for the PoT but spend minutes beating down the dummy when for most melees that +2 to hit is useless....or 2-3 of the ship buffers that do absolutely nothing for your particular build.

    Suck it up buttercup.

    I use em all the time - on new characters that don't have uber twink gear the +4s are nice - to get jump (for ice festival) or just for questing since it's better than a clicky or pot at low levels....the resists that my ship doesn't carry (sonic now, but used to be sonic and cold).....If I didn't get them meh no biggee but if I was near it and had two braincells to rub together I grab them.

    Not worth the zots imo.
    Someone got it wrong. Everyone expected the Spanish Inquisition because they were required to give 30 days notice, by law.
    I can be found on Orien. My more active toons are Cilon, Solstone in Your Pack, and sometimes Acroyer.
