New Ability Suggestion: OverclockFollow

Ability Name: Overclock
Job & Level Acquired: PUP Lvl 50
Recast Time: 5 Minutes
Duration: 2 Hours
Effect:
Triples the duration of Maneuver effects from 1 minute to 3 minutes.
Doubles the amount of elemental burden accumulated per Maneuver.
Doubles the recast time of Maneuvers from 10 seconds to 20 seconds.

Upon activation or cancellation of this ability, all present Maneuver effects are erased. (Tentative)

Overclock is a Stance ability like Hasso and Seigan, it allows PUPs to sacrifice some of their versatility in exchange for greater consistency with regards to their automaton's behavior in battle. Overclock would be a great advantage in situations where the PUP wishes for their automaton to remain consistent in its actions and stat bonuses. However, it sacrifices the versatility of changing maneuvers on the fly and limits the use of attachments which consume maneuvers to generate their effects.

Comments and (hopefully constructive) criticisms are welcome

Triple everything, not just duration, and I'm sold. Not that SE will do it, but would be super-awesome.

That's a bit much wouldn't ya say, Overdrive isn't even that powerful.

Which begs the question, why does our 2hr suck so much ; ;

Since all the 2 hour adjustments our job has clearly slid into last place on that account. I'm hoping it'll change with the merit 2 hours. I just think overdrive needs to be reworked as a whole. I think it'd be decent if the automaton started freaking out and overheated and started sparking and all the current effects were boosted by ridiculous amounts, and at the very end of the 2 hour our automaton explodes and gives us a fresh activate.

That'd be lovely.
