    @Chris
    I understand why you tripled the cool-down for Dodge but, now, people will need to GM it in order to get a duration that is longer than the cool-down. Can you please extend the overall duration of Dodge (and Evasion) to match the duration of Flurry and Sprint?

    Thanks.

    I think its ok. Charge your dodge (same for block and parry) and see the duration you get ;)

    The cool-down in also proportionally extended. Personally, I don't think it's an unreasonable request to extend the duration to match that of Flurry.

    The issue is that the duration and the cool-down are too close.

    I agree. I will investigate. If players of any level are willing to spend the effort to dodge, I think they should be able to do so.

    Update. Afternoon patch will make these all 30 seconds or more once they reach "Proficiency" which is skill level 40.

    Hmm... now that I think about this, that will probably make it feel like a punishment for leveling the skill (like how the extra focus cost makes it feel like a punishment for leveling skills).

    LOL can the man be pleased?

    FYI Ive been spamming dodge all day, like I do every day. I barely notice focus loss, and it takes many subsequent fights in a row for me to notice my focus needs some replenishment (I also train the focus tree a lot, though).

    This thread isn't about focus cost. It's about duration and cool-down.

    Umm... OK....

    I only meant that focus was not the original complaint. Dodge only costs 4 focus at GM.
