Best Way to Handle Wait Times within a Triggered Event
Yeh, if it's not just a field you want to write to, but you are using the field to kick off an action, then you would need a second triggered event to handle the off phase.

The down side of just blocking in the action is that there's nothing to prevent you from just stacking them up and up, unless you are taking measures to prevent multiple invocations. And it can't be stopped once it's started, where the timed field change can be. And it also eats up threads in the event server which are just blocked and not of use for other events.
