it really doesn't matter. you're trying to look at a single skill outside the context of the entire kit that a given class has access to, which is what you should be looking at when comparing one class to another from a big picture perspective. don't get so hung up on the details. as mentioned previously, even if you spread the effects across several different skills, mystics will still have all of their buffs up constantly if they rotate and combo correctly. tbh people need to realize that 1v1ing any kind of tanky class with heavy sustain is going to be annoying as ****. that's just how it is. however, also realize that 1v1 in BDO is a rock paper scissors memefest. if you neutralize the sustain and tankiness of a frontline class because fighting them 1v1 is a hassle, you're also neutralizing the role they were meant to fulfill in content that actually matters. think outside your bubble. that's not really directed at you specifically, but anybody who blindly hops on this anti-mystic train.
