I had an idea concerning the Frostweaver "Free Weave" mechanic. At the moment this is a bit clunky and highly restrictive, because in order to cast ice formations other then Stable Ice you have to go through the whole free weave combo and need to alternate between Stable Ice and other abilities to keep casting that ice. With the current meta of interrupts being spamable this is a big problem for most Frostweaver builds that integrated the Free Weave mechanic, since any interrupt results in me having to do the Free Weave combo all over again, just to get to the same ice formation I have already selected. I make the mechanic feel incredibly annoying and unrefined.
My suggestion to fix this is the following:
Instead giving me a short lasting buff that locks me in the ice formation type, make that buff permanent and add a RESET to the ice formation type on the first combo step of Free Weave.
This way I have more control over the Ice type I want to cast and a quick way to reset my Ice type to stable Ice, since I am not forced to finish the combo in order to select a new Ice Formation type. I think it would be great way to improve the utility of the whole mechanic since it gives the player more control over the Free Weave mechanic and don't expose to 2nd degree punishment of interrupts. The Free weave combo is already quite unpopular since it has such a long cast time and doesn't do much for you in return. So the permanent lock in of the Ice type formation would be a minor buff in terms of the meta, but would be a very big improvement of how the class would feel like to play given the importance that ability plays in the overall kit of the Frostweaver.
As far as I understand the game the change to this mechanic should not be too much work and would make the gameplay experience of the class so much better.
Thanks for reading this and keep up the good work my friend. I'm very happy with the changes you have done so far. It has been a great value added to the game.
