Time Splitter Time Splitter - Gain access to Continuum Split/Shift, which allows you to revert to an earlier point in time.


  • This skill creates a rift on the mesmer's location when used. Should this rift be destroyed, the mesmer loses the ability to go back and prevents used skills from being refreshed. This rift has around 3k hp per illusion shattered, or around 9k maximum, and is considered a structure, thereby making it not susceptible to critical strikes.
  • This skill applies the Continuum Split.png Time Anchored effect to the player's skill bar.
  • Each active clone increases the duration by 1½ seconds.
If the chronomancer receives a lethal blow while being in the continuum rift, the reversion of health, position and recharges may fail and the player is put into downed state instead.
