Why are some cooldowns allowed but not others? Can we get a clear justification for why sage/sorcs can still phase walk after the acid hits but sent/mara cant use force camo? It does seem unbalanced that some classes dont get to use their DCD for acid.

Im not privy to the deeper mechanics but my guess would be phase walk is considered an escape while force camo is not. when you think about it, more than anything else (despite how pvpers choose to use it) force cao is not a stlthout. its a cleanse at best, in pve its a threat drop and pretty much is considered the same concept on a player, you drop from sight they lose "aggro" or LOS. most escapes are usable in acid cept ones like stlth out cause obviously you take dmg your reappear.

Force Camo is stealth. Stealth cooldowns don't work in acid.
Those are also the only cooldowns that don't work in acid.

The whole acid mechanic is dumb anyway. As soon as a game goes to acid with equal playernumbers on either team all fairness and intelligent play goes to hell in favour of a swift ending.

Acid is pretty dumb. Never liked it at all...
