All right you mageys out there! We need to band together to make a somewhat useless skill, useful. Seriously, how many other classes have an ATTACK skill that HEALS their opponent? As it currently stands Swift Transform is an occasionally useful skill, but only in rare circumstances. Especially as a fire mage with no stun/paralyze effects to speak of, what else could this skill possibly be for than to allow us to run away? And what self respecting mage HEALS their opponent to do so!

FIX THIS PLEASE!

    I agree that it sucks that Transform heals our opponents... but if you use Runes to max out Swift Transform and Magic Suppression, you'll reduce the cooldown time to 10secs, increase the time a player is transformed and reduce the amount of health that is restored.

    Transform is one of the most valuable skills a Mage has in PvP, if used correctly it will allow you to get the first hit in on your opponent and they will be helpless. If you get your DPS up high enough, you can trans someone and kill them in 1-2 shots before they can respond.

    I love my maxed-out Transform... :D

    purify. purify. purify. If there's one thing I learned from facing Vorbis in PvP it's how important it is for the priest to purify :p

    though ofc, if you're an elf priest and you're the one getting constantly transformed, you're in for a very very very bad time - esp if it's alternated with vampire bonds (*・)σσσ(*゜Д゜*)

    fire mage can cast magic purge just after transfo that is applying a debuff. Then the priest isnt purging transfo but a low resi debuff :p

    oh that is true~ I forget fire mages can lock purify because they're essentially an extinct breed in pvp on my server :p

    such a shame, fire is such a strong pvp build imo. a bit harder to play i think than water, but can be much more deadly
