Arc Beam Affix Duration
« on: March 20, 2019, 11:32:27 AM »
Hei guys, its been a long while since i post anything here (though I question if anyone remembers...  :'() But I'm currently stuck at modifying 1 skill, Arc Beam

My plan was to use Arc Beam as a basic channeling spell for 1 of my Lightbringer Class, but I wanted to make the duration longer than Arc Beam's initial duration (1sec). But no matter how I  change the duration at the Affix tab or Skill tab, I can't seems to change it. The icon will show 6sec duration, but as soon as it hits 5sec (after 1sec) the effect stops.

I've checked the skill tab, there's no EventEnd on the skill; There's no affixremove; I even try to play around with the layout but there's nothing fruitful. If anyone can enlighten me that would be great. I'm 5 skills away from completing my skill now  :'(


p/s: Moved the topic to this section coz I didn't realize I post it on the wrong side

heyo

i think the channeling skills minimum duration is overriding the affixes which keeps the duration to 1 second, ive tried changing the minimum duration but it didnt really do anything lol, so im not 100% sure as to what the cause of the problem is, however i did come up with a solution

1st.
set the durations on the affixes to "blank" not 0, that implies it has a duration at all, it has to be blank so it can be later overridden.
heres an example
Spoiler

2nd
within the event setting inside the skill, give it a duration override
like so.
Spoiler

done.
that should get the effect that your hopefully trying to achieve

Thanks TwinkleToes! I'll give it a try later tonight.

I was suspecting the minimal duration as well, but I didn't thought about putting affixes duration to blank, I just assumed event duration will override affixes duration.

Once again thanks!
