So it's been a long time since I've played an orb sorc and knew about the cooldown coming into the build. But I didn't realize how much it effected the game play from pvp to pve.

I was hoping maybe next patch we can do away with this limitation by lowering the dmg output of the spell. This to allow the game play that used to be availible for the sorc from tele and orb combo's to avoid enemy's. I realize you can still tele and orb but the cool down limits a few of the strategy's I used to use with the sorc.

the orb cooldown is fine IMO
hit with blast twice while you wait.
I cant see a reason to spam orb.

That is my point you're never waiting you are teleporting around because you aren't relying on a tank. With the cooldown it almost makes you use a tank thus killing the gameplay that it used to have.

with the cooldown it gives you time to tele around. The cooldown is only on forb, you can tele while waiting to cast again

the point is you need to be able to slow mobs so you don't get whooped while tele around. I suppose I could dump a point into nova (for the meantime) while I wait for the stupid cooldown.

orb the group, then they are slowed, then you can tele around and fire another orb as soon as its cooled down. You are best using orb then spamming a couple of glacial spikes to permafreeze mobs.
