    Default Omen Sight - Is anyone else bothered?

    I was hoping to get the communities opinion on Omen Sight and how it is a 30 minute active buff. I would have assumed that with the cost of the ability and what its purpose is, it would have either been a perm ability or a toggled on/off as opposed to a 30 minutes buff; especially since (to my knowledge) this is the only 30 minute buff in the game (but I could be wrong).

    A toggle would be handier, but it's a buff. To keep it up when I'm out in the world I use the following macro to mount:
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast [notactive] Quantum Sight
    use Swift Armored Murdantix Bridle

    You have to spam the button a bit to mount, but it gets the job done. Usually in raids I manually turn off the buff to remove the graphical embellishments from the corners of my screen.

    I actually was talking to my guild about this last night. Weird.

    I'd love to see it as a toggled ability. It just seems troublesome to recast it. It's totally minor and not a big deal to press a button, but still.

    Edited to add: totally adding that macro in, Primal. Good idea.

    I will be using that macro, thanks for passing. I haven't thought about attaching to my mount.

    I would have just preferred them add it as a perm ability. Seeing normal artifacts does not require anything special, I am not sure why it isn't passive.

    Does Omen Sight have a CD? If not Another good way to include it in a macro is to put it at the bottom of your combat macro. For Example:

    #show Massive Blow
    supressmacrofailures
    cast Massive Blow
    cast Crushing Blow
    cast Omen Sight

    Then whenever you hit this macro on GCD / Out of range it will refresh it.

    God yes. It gets annoying as hell when you're running around doing stuff completely oblivious to the fact that it wore off. Going to be a much bigger annoyance when they add twisted artifacts to SL zones.

    Didn't occur to me that you could do this, I thought from trying it with other buffs that the [notactive] modifier only worked on toggles. But yeah, macroing it onto your mount button is about the only sensible way unless you use a buff monitor addon to warn you when it wears off.

    A toggle for Omen/Quantum sight would be nice indeed. Still, 30 minutes a hell of a lot better than when it was first introduced. It would only stay active for about 4 minutes if I remember correctly.

    It's only recently been extended to 30 mins....back when it was introduced at the end of 2011 it was on a much shorter timer.
    If you say plz instead of please, I say no because it's shorter than yes.

    If I remember correctly, it was 3 minutes buff with 15 or 30 minute Cooldown. was something along those lines.

    I think it was 5, then 15, now 30.

    A toggle would be way nicer.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    Correct me please if I'm wrong here (as if I needed to ask lol) but does omen sight do anything in Bravine of Dusken apart from change the appearance of your character?

    I've certainly never found any extra artifacts with its use.

    It allows you to see the entrances to some of the dungeons.

    Edit: and in 2.3 there will be twisted artifacts in SL for you to see as well.

    You have an odd definition of "recently"-- it's been 30 minutes for over a year.
