    Default Please Bring Back Shadow Warp (With Suggestion)

    I was bummed to see that Shadow Warp was removed when I logged into the PTS last week because I, as well as many others, find Shadow Warp to be very useful. I understand not wanting to let players keep Planar Vortex up constantly. However, having 3 blinks with 25 second cool downs it is not very difficult to keep Planar Vortex up for 24 of the 25 seconds. The Rift Disturbance cool down is the same duration as Planar Vortex so that makes it even easier to keep the gaps to a minimum.

    I thought of a way to bring it back without requiring a talent point but still keep the restriction:

    Make it a root ability in the high 30's to low 40's range and have it share a cool down with Shadow Shift. The shared cool down would effectively keep the number of blinks reduced but still give players the option to use the one they want.

    This is not why Shadow Warp was removed.

    4 blinks. You forgot memory capture/flashback. Although I don't understand the logic for removing it, there was only 1 fight that I actually found it useful for (High priest). the only other times I ever used it was trying to speed the distance between mobs in dungeons.

    I would like to trade Shadow Shift to Shadow Warp which is WAY better for positioning and usefulness compared to Shadow Shift.

    Or keep both if possible, but Im happy with a trade!

    The only times i've used shadow warp in pve were in t2 dungeons so i can grab mobs faster... and when i'm soaking for hm mak, so i didn't have to move.

    Of the two, the desolation soak is no longer an issue... so all that changed for me was that i go through dungeons slightly slower when i tank.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish~

    + one to bring it back. There is also a post about this in the beta forums with many people wanting it back. Would love an answer as to why they took it out..

    This question was answered in the rogue stream when they revealed the Tactician.
