  • Persistence of Memory also negates the extra recharge time added by skills like Distracting Shot.
  • This skill does not prevent interruption. Instead, it makes the interrupted spell immediately available for recasting. Keep in mind, however, that the Energy spent on the interrupted spell — as well as the time casting it — are still wasted.
  • Unless you need another stance, consider using Mantra of Resolve instead of this for general-purpose interrupt protection: the cost penalty from the Mantra is usually less than the cost of having to cast the spell twice (or more).
  • The best use for this skill may be to protect low energy spells with long recharge.
