YAYAYAYAYAY!! owned so hard :D - Y0_ich_halt Have a look at my page 20:19, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Geeez, I loved this skill. *cry*... Thats my AB build gone.. 20:43, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
lol@u :P go use some more inventive builds. - Y0_ich_halt Have a look at my page 20:46, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
Siphon is more inventive than SP. It's less effective in GvG for obvious reasons, but now it's just a regular, easily replaceable hex snare. --8765 21:30, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
so? saying it's more inventive than sp doesn't mean it's inventive. - Y0_ich_halt Have a look at my page 21:55, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
What do you suggest? Using pin down on a sin? xD 22:07, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
HAHAHAHA... no, hamstring plz. -- 19:09, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
i'm for the leet combo of hamstring to get close and then rending touch to remove mending from your opponent. - Y0_ich_halt Have a look at my page 20:56, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Aw man, there goes one great utility hex... NeonCrusader 21:43, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

This skill used to be great at stopping touchers and other professions that relied on close quarters combat, but now it's potential has been lost.William Wallace 00:55, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

This skill has been nerfed to hell. Necros got all the love this time, Sins the shaft. Totally overnerfed, to the point of destruction. Sad! :( --Longasc 01:48, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

I have to say it deserved it though. Earlier you could maintain this even with 1 single point in Deadly Arts (due to the 1 second cast time). There are few classes I haven't seen use this skill (pretty much only rangers). Monks, necros and other casters used it to get away from enemies, melees of all types used it to get closer to enemies. It's not a bad thing having a skill that's usable by pretty much anyone, but it is a bad thing when you've got a usable skill without specing one single point into the attribute. — Galil Talk page 01:55, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
Still, I think they should have only nerfed it a little, like 10-15 seconds recharge, aswell as not changing the duration, and not having this "If moving foe, it recharges twice as fast" thing.. Never going to forgive them for this. >_< 08:29, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

just another useless skill now... 30 sec recharge WTF? Plohek 19:30, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

omg totally killed, back to endure toxin i guess:p 13:02, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Siphon Speed was not nerfed... it was... ubernerfed... *sob sob* *cry* so many sin skills got nerfed, shadow prison, dark prison, augury of death... must i go on?! 01:25, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

shadow form as the list continues... (yes 2 years difference on reply) 06:45, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Does it still need half the spell range?[edit]

Does it still need half the spell range anymore since it takes forever to recharge even if you cast it on a person who is moving and even than the duration is very short as a snare?William Wallace 04:02, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it's a killer nerf. 02:01, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Also why did they decide to nerf this skill when it has been around for over two years in guild wars???William Wallace 21:20, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

because only recently it has become overused. nobody noticed its overpoweredness while we had the overpowered sp. - Y0_ich_halt Have a look at my page 21:23, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

And who uses this skill anymore??William Wallace 04:13, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

nobody, because it's been nerfed into oblivion. - Y0_ich_halt User Y0 ich halt sig.jpg 11:38, 27 May 2008 (UTC)


When did it's functionality change to: "Recharges 50% faster if cast on a moving foe"? I think they made it less underpowered and more viable for regular use. 18:36, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

March 6th. It used to have like what a 5 second recharge? →[ »Halogod User Halogod35 Sig.png (talk ]← 21:13, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Jade Quarry[edit]

This would be awesome for sins in JQ. I'm suprised it isnt used in JQ that much, especially to rape juggernauts. Scar Of The Lotus 00:54, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Perhaps because Melee sucks in JQ. 13:52, 6 November 2011 (UTC)
Not sucks, just disfavoured... --Wingsy 23:45, 6 November 2011 (UTC)
