Some CoT and PS nextdelay questions not answered in the FAQ I'm building a phoenix striker assassin and I was reading through the FAQ and it said that claws of thunder now release the third and second charges simultaneously (nova and charged bolts). Where was this documented? I don't see that in a changelog. It also adds that since CoT is affected by nextdelay (just the bolts and the nova), then the fact that both bolts and nova is released simulateously does not mean that an enemy will be hit by both UNLESS knockback is applied as well (dragon tail). From my understanding of nextdelay, I thought it only affected individual spell projectiles. What I mean by this is that I imagined that nextdelay would apply to the nova ring and a separate nextdelay counter would be applied to the charged bolts, so an enemy could be hit by both nova and one charged bolt within 4 frames (but not by the nova twice or by more than 1 charged bolt 4 frames or less apart). My confusions also applies to phoenix strike, since nextdelay affects the second and third charges. If I was to release 3 charges of claws of thunder and the second charge of phoenix strike (chain lightning), would the nextdelay of claws of thunder also apply to the lightning (or the ice bolts if PS was charged to 3) of PS? I have also imagined that nextdelay has separate timers for different spells as well, but if that's not the case then CoT + PS is nerfed big time by nextdelay. One of the guides of phoenix strike says that releasing CoT with PS is a bad idea because of nextdelay, but that seems to be the only source that kind of answers my nextdelay questions. However, since the knockback of dragon tail pushes back enemies just enough for both the nova and charged bolts of CoT to hit, would releasing CoT and PS with dragon tail also solve the problems of nextdelay? http://strategy.diabloii.net/news.php?id=599 is the link for the phoenix striker guide. Nextdelay is discussed with CoT and PS.
