Overview[]

TimeManipulation.png Time Manipulation is one of the powersets. It is a Defender primary power set and a Corruptor, Mastermind and Controller secondary power set.

By gazing into the flow of time, you are able to manipulate time itself. Time Manipulation allows the wielder to inflict crippling debuffs, heal and buff allies, and be able to empower effects on single targets through careful use of Time Crawl and Temporal Selection.

Power Table[]

The Time Manipulation powerset is available as a primary set for Defenders, or as a secondary set for Corruptors, Masterminds, and Controllers. The following table shows which powers are available and at what level:

Powers[]

The following are powers in the Time Manipulation power set.


Chronoshift.PNG Chrono Shift[]

You cause nearby allies to act more quickly by allowing them to slip through the time stream seamlessly. When Chrono Shift is activated, you and nearby allies will immediately recover a portion of your health and endurance. Chrono Shift will greatly increase the Recharge Speed of nearby allies for the duration of the power, additionally for a short while the flow of time will constantly undo a portion of your allies' wounds, causing them to periodically recover health and recover endurance. An ally affected by Temporal Selection will recover additional health from Chrono Shift. Chrono Shift will apply a regeneration bonus instead of heal over time for a short while if the user is in a PvP zone.

Temporalmending.PNG Temporal Mending[]

You mend the wounds of yourself and nearby allies by placing your bodies in a past or future state where they are far less injured. Temporal Mending will immediately heal its targets and continue to heal them for an equal amount over the next 6 seconds. Additionally, affected allies will gain some resistance to slow effects and regeneration debuffs. Allies affected by the Accelerated effect will receive additional healing from this power. Temporal Mending will apply a regeneration bonus instead of heal over time for a short while if the user is in a PvP zone.

Temporalselection.PNG Temporal Selection[]

You distort time around an ally, selecting a period of time where their abilities are at their highest. Their damage, attack rate and regeneration rates are dramatically increased for a brief period. This power places the Accelerated effect on the target. While this is in effect, the target has any healing and healing over time effects from Temporal Mending or Chrono Shift significantly increased.

Timecrawl.PNG Time Crawl[]

You're able to dramatically slow the time around a single enemy, reducing their movement speed and attack rate. Time is slowed to such an extreme that their wounds will take longer to heal, reducing their regeneration rate. Time Crawl applies the Delayed effect on its target. Debuff and control effects from other Time Manipulation powers are increased on targets affected by Delayed.

Timestop.PNG Time Stop[]

You trap your target within the flow of time causing them to be held helpless. Even those resistant to the effects of Time Stop's hold will still have their regeneration rate and healing effects reduced for a brief period. Targets affected by Time Crawl will suffer from a more powerful hold, however its benefits are brief.
