Those who choose the path of the chronomancer gain new abilities that allow them to rend both space and time. Being able to use both a shield and new wells, their skill set focuses on past versus future and fast versus slow as key themes. Chronomancers also gain access to Continuum Split/Shift, as well as the new alacrity effect that speeds up skill recharges rather than slowing them down.
