    Title: Constantly Changing Confusion Direction on Cabalist
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? Blocking me from having Fun....
    Details:
    While fighting Cabalist with Area affect that causes Confusion (i.e. Nefas) The Confusion Direction is changing every 2-3 seconds which makes it impossible to identify and start moving before the directions change again. I can understand the confusion, even having it last a while, but constantly changing directional controls is just ridiculous.
    Steps to Reproduce:
    fight Nefas or any of the Cabalists that cause Confusion through the Area Affect
    User Specs:

    Yes, this has been the case and isn't really a bug I'm sorry to tell you. It's not easy, but doable.
    I recommend removing it by using purify and purify burst. Purify burst has had a huge boost to its aoe range and is very helpful in removing confusion.

    Thank you for letting me know.... that is very disappointing that a developer would even consider that as good game mechanics.

    Even with purify which takes 1 second to caste you have 1 second to move then it is right back to confusion again with no resist. It is not difficult it is just rediculous since there truly is no counter or resistance and your direction changes every 2-3 seconds.
