Default Ending Affliction effects early

Quick question: Should I have to pay extra points (via an enhancement, frex) for the ability to cut short an Affliction's duration? (Assuming it's my Affliction, not someone else's.)

Default Re: Ending Affliction effects early

I would say yes, since it gives you a bit more control over your attack and I can imagine some situations where it would be advantageous to be able to do this... I would guess 5-10% though, since it isn't all that useful.

Variable (+5%) lets you hedge your bets before using an ability, letting you pull back your levels to reduce the duration before you attack. The ability to cut your Affliction's duration after rolling is more useful, since you can use full power and then dissolve it at your leisure. Thus, this should cost +10%, IMO.
