Added info for blast finisher timing and a note on a possible bug. -KitenMitens 21:54, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

I would think it's more likely that the initial blast is the bug. Normally any combo finisher will accompany the skill's actual effect. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 22:09, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
The blast finisher notification appears at the start of cast time, but the finisher's effects only occur at the end of cast - and only if the skill was cast to completion. As far as I can tell it's just the Combo Heart Thingmie (TM) that's the problem. 22:18, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
Seems like that is how all blast finishers with an activation time behave; The notification is displayed at any point during the activation time if a field is available, but will only apply the effects if the activation is completed. PurebladeProductions (talk) 11:52, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
Not always, Churning Earth originally triggered a blast finisher at the start of the activation before they changed it to the end. I think it's consistent for all blast finishers now though.--Relyk ~ talk < 12:26, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
Though the finisher takes its effect from a field that may expire before the skill is fully cast - so you can get an Area Healing half a second after your water field's expired. Odd, but useful - Arcane Wave and Arcane Blast are instant-finishers, so having the finisher part of this skill insta-cast-able can be linked to those, even if its effects are delayed. I like it. 07:48, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
