How To Bypass Archon Cooldown in patch 1.0.5

  1. Pick following four skills; Magic Weapon, Familiar, Energy Armor, Archon
  2. Activate Energy Armor so that make your Arcane Power below 95 and wait until it gets fullly charged.
  3. Use the four skills simultaneously(really. just set those skills to 1~4 and hit the keys at the same time)
  4.  Enjoy.
Yes. You can't use the four skills if your fully charged max Arcane Power is below 95, but you can, and this triggers the bug.

If you  have a G700 Logitech mouse, you can easily make macros for the additional buttons you have there.

After playing around with the recording options, I have found that the absolute simultaneous (no delay) pressing of the four buttons does not work, but instead you need to have a tiny delay.

I can get it to work 7-8 out of 10 times with this configuration:
Archon is on button 1, Familiar on 2, Energy Armor on 3, Magic Weapon on 4
Press the buttons in following order: 4 - 3 - 1 - 2 with 3 ms delay between pressing the buttons! Of course that's only possible with some kind of macro program like I used in Logitech SetPoint - maybe a script can do this, too?

Then simply release the buttons simultaneously - the order does not matter, neither does any delay whatsoever make a difference, the main thing is how you press down the buttons !
