I think blizzard/ultimate blizzard have their cooldowns reversed.

4 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I am reasonably new to witch, but I understand it enough to know why teleport/ultimate teleport have seperate cooldowns. It's so that you can't do ultimate teleports back to back just from regular teleport going off cooldown.

But blizzard is weird, as in it is reversed. Ultimate blizzard's cooldown (1min) is way shorter than blizzard(1m20s). Which makes zero sense to me. Perhaps there is some secret to shortening the cooldown of a blizzard, so that I can do back to back ultimates? No, I doubt it.

edit: Turns out it is just a description error. The CD for both is 1 minute regardless of whether you have ultimate blizzard learned or not, or use the ultimate or not.

for future reference, a lot of skills get a lower cd as it levels up.

Blizzard III is still 1min 20 seconds and Blizzard: Ultimate is 1 min.

When you cast Blizzard III it shows 1min, but it sits like that for about 19 seconds, as the cooldown timer won't show you the additional 20 seconds left (my guess is it would make the cooldown timers too cluttered -shrug-). Blizzard: Ultimate however starts at 60 seconds when you cast it, so you know it's a 1min cooldown for sure.

I'm personally okay with the cooldowns being like this as you'll always have Blizzard: Ultimate available whenever you use Blizzard III. Since you cast Blizzard: Ultimate off of Blizzard III, I like that you can always use the Ultimate whenever you cast Blizzard III.

Just my opinion though, quack.

I knew I wasn't crazy! I just knew it. Time to tell my shrink!
