The QD ability delay isn't counted from the moment the charge is used but when its going to renew. So if you use 2 shots back to back then u must keep the body piece on for the moment the first charge is renewed and the 2nd charge starts to renew or the second one will not get the - ability delay. I understand the logic yet still feel a little cheated. :)
The wording is a little iffy, but here goes:
I went out and tested Mirke with QD-5, and here are my tests:
Only have one merit in recast atm, so with Mirke, timer should be -7 seconds.
One shot with Mirke: /recast timer shows 53 seconds.
One shot with Mirke, changed body piece: /recast still showed 53 seconds.
Back to back with Mirke full time: Waited until initial charge was reset. /recast shows 53 seconds.
Back to back with Mirke, then changed body piece before 1st recharged. Initial shot /recast 53 seconds. Second shot 58 seconds
One shot with Mirke. Changed body piece. Reshot with Mirke again. Wait for one charge to reset: /recast timer shows 53 seconds again.
One shot with Mirke. Changed body piece. Shot again without Mirke. Wait for one charge to reset: Initial /recast shows 53 seconds as expected. Second charge, 58 seconds as expected.
Anyone want to add to this small test? As far as I can tell, Mirke with QD-5 delay does shave off 5 seconds off the recharge timer. trying to be thorough.
So, for single shots, Mirke does shave off 5 seconds. Back to Back shots, if you don't fulltime it until the 1st shot is recharged, the 2nd shot does not benefit. Edited, Apr 16th 2009 6:23pm by Wyuli Edited, Apr 16th 2009 6:36pm by Wyuli
