The Slow status condition increases the hard roundtime (RT) incurred by most actions (including roundtime induced by failed defensive CMAN/maneuver rolls), provided that the action normally takes at least 1 second of hard roundtime. Actions which normally take no or only soft roundtime are not affected. Depending on the spell or ability that caused the condition, it may add a flat time modifier and/or multiply the original amount by a factor.

Against creatures, it increases the creature action timer by a corresponding amount.

Spells and abilities that cause this condition include:

Slow effects do affect the ability to CHANNEL spells, even though Celerity/Haste effects do not.
