    Default Chloro Synergy Crystal for PVP

    While Pyros can just chuck an armor on for constant 200 SP, Warlocks can do the same with theirs, Harbs just need a blade buff etc, Chloros need to cast Void Life for a 10 sec 225SP buff.
    Meaning I have to stand there and channel it once every 10 seconds to get full benefit from it.
    The extra 25Sp isn't worth the hassle since channing something every 10 seconds just isn't practical in PVP.

    Especially when you considering some other souls don't have to do ANYTHING but put a 1hour buff on themselves to gain the full benefit.

    I could always just chuck a harb crystal on with a 0 point harb in my spec, but seriously, I shouldn't have to and i miss on the (however marginal) Bloom HoT.
    As soon as you get focussed once, you have to spam ST heals on yourself and if that goes on for over 10 seconds you'll have lost your buff while most other classes will still have theirs.

    Maybe make it active on the veils, or even Living Aegis. Would be a lot more useful than this.

    P.S.
    Ofcourse, I don't have the pieces for the set bonus yet, but this is simple 1+1.
    Just getting that in before someone goes "how do you know how his will work" etc.
    The description is clear enough.

    You reckon this should be looked at?

    A lot of the synergy crystals have dumb bonuses.

    I didn't really check the other calling ones. I just looked at the specs I use myself tbh, which are Harb, Warlock, Pyro and mainly Chloro.
    Between those, Chloro just gets shafted compared to the other ones.

    I definitely think this should be looked at. I posted on the mage forums a few days ago, raising the same concern.

    In its current form, this crystal is not really viable for PvP. Having it active based on buffs, like you suggested, would be a much better option (even if that means losing the extra 25sp). Alternatively, they could keep the bonus as it is, but replace VL with a less circumstantial spell that can be as consistently used in PvP as in PvE (such as direct heals).

    Does it need to be changed? Yes.
    Is it complete crap? Yes.

    Will Trion change it? lolno

    Mages aren't rogues and clerics. Therefore be ready for the shaft.

    They can't possibly have the same person design all the crystals. Some gems from the different warrior ones:

    Crystal A: +120 strength if you happen to crit 3 times in 5 seconds on a Tuesday
    Crystal B: +120 strength...always on!
