This is how the window of time after a shrine is sanctified of defiled works.
- The initial window after the first shrine sanc/def is 15 minutes.
- If a shrine is counter sanc/def in that time, the next window is 10 minutes.
- Then about 7 minutes.
- Then 5 minutes.
- Then 3 minutes and so on.
Basically the window is decreased by about 33% every time the shrine is countered.
The reason this comes up is so that I can address the Bulwark bug and comment that I have seen recently. Basically if a group sanctifies and then puts down a Bulwark, you have 15 minutes to defile, unless the back and forth has been going for a while. The window would be smaller then (as shown above).
It appears that the main complaint with Bulwark is the inability to counter the sanctify with a defile before putting up Bulwark. You have 15 minutes to hit the shrine in most cases. My question is do people still think this is a problem after knowing how it works a little better?
Hopefully this all makes sense.
