    I hate that spell, it just goes against my values. When I fight someone, I fight them to the best of my abilities and theirs. TWoP is used to put your opponent at a handicap by taking away their mobility. And since all my builds are predicated on mobility, you've just gimped my build in order to tilt the fight in your favor. It's cowardly.

    imo you sir are wrong! i dont care what built you are, and i dont see the reason why i should respect your built at all. As long as you invade my game to kill me you are my enemy and i will use whatever i have available to help me end up bowing over your dead body. Imo pvp should be like use whatever you want, just bow at the start and the end of the duel to show respect, nothing else.

    Dude, do you know who are you talking with? He is Blaine! you better delete this post before everyone in the wiki start hating you, just saying

    Like people said, it's harder to use to great effect now. In PvP I've seen it used effectively as an "ambush" spell. People will hide and spring it on you once you're close. If you're in range they'll try to go in immediately for a backstab or spam WoG. When I see it used I either move away or cast an acid cloud forcing them to go through it to get to me. If it's used openly it's easy to simply move out of range and wait for it to expire.

    that is if you don't get caught in the range of the thing which was nerfed but still got quite some slow down range

    i personally go as low as them and spam WoG if they're gonna spam WoG or backstab me its only fair i screw then over before they screw me over

    TWoP and WoG spam is pretty low in my opinion

    Twop is just another miracle available in the game. If it is there and the developers kept it there after the patch, i dont understand why ppl should not use it in every situation they feel it will be usefull. I have 1800 hp on my main char and many times i get one-shotted from crystal soulmass, or thrown out of ledges by force, does this mean i should ask for everyone not to use these spells because they kill me? No. I must simply adapt or die and not say a word about it.

    @scudman_slayer no i personally dont use such techniques, i just dont understand why there is so much talk about this miracle, or in general why invaders should expect their in-game enemies to make their lives easier when they invade their world making their boss runs a mess.

    Are you talking about pre patch? Cause its just a slow similar to walking thru the swamp now. You can still dodge roll and everything.

    Not really worth the attunement slot now, but it was overpowered before and needed the nerf.

    lol thanks!

    @Robotech:

    You're entitled to your opinion. Way I see it though, if I invade and am outnumbered 3 to 1, I don't see where the satisfaction is in getting yourself another advantage over me. I love 3v1s, but let's be realistic, my only chance at winning them is if I have my mobility. Take that away from me and my chances of winning literally drop to 0%. Not because you had any kind of skill, but because you used a spell that made mine irrelevant. I invade with no shield, no spells, no items, and my only weapons are a parrying dagger and a bandit's knife--no gimmicks, no cheap tricks. If on top of that you need to take away my mobility to win, despite the fact that you outnumbered me, then fine. Just don't bow after the fight.

    As for duels, it's a different story. Since they're 1v1, then theoretically I should be able to run away for the short duration of the spell. But that's not my style. I'm a very aggressive fighter, and I'm always on the offensive (duh, I have no shield!). If I get killed because of TWoP in a duel, I guess it's my fault for never running away! But now that I think about it... I don't think I've every been killed because of that spell in a duel. So... see paragraph 1!
