    I would really like to see you get a Douse-like effect applied when you start swimming. It seems odd that I continue to burn for several seconds after I jump in a river. Little things like this add a lot of depth.

    Thanks!

    the effect from burns will last long after you enter the water this would be abused for DoT fire attacks in PvP, and even in PvE

    You can't attack while swimming, so the chance for abuse is fairly small. Douse is an easy skill to level anyway.

    If there is a chance of abuse it will be taken, I know you cannot fight back but still the DOT is countered by Douse,
    I guess if you count the Kool down from exiting Combat mode like casting douse I guess is could work.
    I do not remember is you can just pop out of combat and back in without Kool down from jumping in water, if a swim ensures it takes a long as a cast sure not an issue.

    Remaining on fire after jumping in water bothered me until I remembered it's magic fire, most of the time. Then it didn't bother me.
