Skill of the Day [13-12-07] Waste Not, Want not

Waste Not Want Not

Spell. If target foe is not casting a Spell or attacking, you gain 8...12 Energy. [Inspiration Magic]

Energy : 5. Activation time : 1/4th Recharge 15.

This mesmer skill is used for energy management. If a target doesn't cast a spell or isn't attacking you gain energy. Sounds pretty nice. But it is of course harder to do then said. At 12 inspiration it gives you 12 energy, meaning you gain 7 energy....
Anyway lets review the cons and pro's.

Cons :

1. Hard to use in battle.
2. Bad prequisite (Cast + attacking)
3. Low energy gain.
4. Recharge is a bit to to high.

Pro's :

1. Heroes use it efficiently.
2. 1/4th cast time.
3. 5 energy.
4. Can be used by any class to get a "decent" energy management skill.

This skill is not "BAD" but calling it good is overrated.
To gain 7 energy for a skill that is almost impossible to get fired off is bad. It requires you to focus on your enemy, and you cloud yourself from your surroundings.
I recommend NOT useing this skill on yourself. Use it for an hero and nothing else.
Also there is a nifty bug I've read on wiki :

This skill fails to trigger if the foe is activating any skill, does not trigger during aftercast, and does not trigger when timed with an interrupt.

In other words, a big no no, till the bug is fixed. And also when it gets a buff.
A fix could be : Steal 1 to 3 energy. If enemy wasn't useing any skill you gain an additional 1....12 energy.

In this way you don't waste, imho. Anyway this skill should go in the NEVER USED BIN.
Unless someone disagrees of course, I would love to discuss about skills Very Happy
