So Ascendant Embermages (The Ospirix Birdpeople Mages that shoot the Meteor from the Sky) did get a larger delay before shooting their projectile in Patch 0.8.3c
Which was a step in the right direction. But they are still unfair, since they sometimes cast from offscreen and the indicator is so tiny, you easily can skip overlook that.
The impactarea obviously is as tiny as the telegraph, but that doesn’t make it feel much fairer, sicne when you fight other mobs (especially big mobs) you sometimes don’t even see the indicator, until you realized there are some Embermages in the pack you pulled.
In the storycontent they are not that bad, but once you are high arena and high monolith, this becomes a real problem.
There are many possible solutions for this, but I would like the following:
- Increase the delay between indicator spawning and impact even higher
- Increase the AoE of the impact and the indicator
- Make thee telegraph more visible
