most of the time...its probably not needed. however in many situations for instance when your extremely outnumbered to the point where you are playing defensivly...rogues are minor/curing... mages are tping...warriors in shields..calling that torment lets everyone know to switch back to offensive mode and atk.
if its just 1 rape ass party training through the other nation then yea.. no need to call it just spam it and continue with other duffs.
if you are a bad player than yes... calling the torment can slow you down and cause you to miss a heal/cure or something.
about doing things that slow down a priest i would say the worst way you can slow down a priest is by having 2 mages that have never rlly pked much together in a party, and party members that feel the need to chase people to the end of the earth.
unorganized mages completely ruin a party..it drives me nuts.. everyone gets all seperated.
when people run away to atk people..because sometimes there are so many people in the fight i have to look at my party bar to rely on who needs to be healed/cured the most..and when i waste time trying to cure/heal someone that isnt even within range..usually someone else dies..or one less person is duffed.
vigilante idk why you making huge fuss about it though xD not that big a deal. took a while for me to get used to but..now its not to bad. however i will say back in the day we got along amazingly if not better than now without vent/f11/macros or anything. if you pk with a group of people long enough you just know...
