    It just increases the amount of time that drawn glyphs on your combat bar last before going away.

    It's not really a big deal, but you can use it to prestack a bunch of stuff at once.

    It won't make the buff last longer, but if you draw an ignite weapon glyph in an unlocked slot and the use mind lock, it will stay on your bar for longer. If your mind lock skill is high enough, you can keep drawn glyphs on your bar permanently, even if stacked. Normally if you don't use a drawn glyph it will go back into your deck after a bit.

    It has little to no use now that they added the ability to add locked glyphs to your bar.

    The skill used to be used to rapid fire one skill over and over. Basically the concept was to 5 stack all your glyphs except 1. Then you would be guaranteed to draw that 1 glyph over and over and insta-cast it. (This strategy was used to level a certain skill or to produce massive amounts of DPS). Then they added what I call a "discard cooldown" and the strategy was no longer valid.

    Its intended use is preparation. You can make large stacks of glyphs then use mind lock to ensure they stay there until youre ready to use them.


    Making it possible to fill your hotbar with 5stack skills then have them ready to fire one after the other as a opening attack without having to charge

    Save yourself the aggravation and don’t use it. It has no place in the current game. The things that it used to be nice for have been removed and/or a better functional version has been introduced. Really the only point of it is to get it to 40 to progress in the skill tree.
