    maybe can be fine to see a lot of players zoning to an event doing some magical animation or light...

    Wasted time, because zoning will go away.

    I actually had this exact thought a few weeks ago but thought it would be difficult to come up with a specific idea for it. not just magic, but some sort of ritual, like laying down stones in a circle. something that takes 30 seconds.

    I thought "zoning" was going to stick around but with a huge cast time and cooldown?

    this is not "Wasted time"

    when a pk/order are using the ZONE to escape from a fight (maybe far away from opponent) it's necessary to understand what is appening... when a player is FREEZED for 30 sec (can't move during zoning) it's necessary to understand what player is doing...

    ZONING WILL GO AWAY?

    and RECALL SPELL? on future players can probably zone using RUNES, and a small animation can be placed for this type of new spells...

    Some thing for the BLINK... a teleport animation is necessary from now.

    It is wasted time to produce an animation for a function that is only in for testing purposes anyway. It will be going away (last word from the devs was that it will, anyway), and they had stated they have no plans for any form of fast travel a la recall spell.

    When did they say it will be going away? I heard at the beginning of this release (I think) that they were keeping some form of it in, but that it would slowly get longer so we could adapt.

    Quenton, zoning is an Admincommand and will not be useable for us in the final game. There will be some spells they replace zoning, but they will cost and take time and we should get used to this.
