how about changing arrest CD to 30 seconds and stone edge CD to 25 seconds? So, 10 seconds longer than the effect of each skill? That would be a buff to mages and very slight nerf to archers
Seeing the poll results it looks like it could be a good fix. Time will tell if further changes are needed~
It will be nice to see AMs slowly take more importance in PvP strategy. I still don't know about PVE, I guess these skills are indeed more useful when you can use them frequently as it is easy to kite a mob during the 10 seconds between effect-cooldown, but I personally will still prefer slow-based skills as crowd control.
