RE: PvM Testing Patch Notes 1-24-18 - Campari - 01-25-2018

Not sure if I understand these barding changes correctly, but they seem like a big nerf to me. Basically if you fail an attempt at either provo/peace/disco, you now have to wait 10 seconds to make another attempt instead of 5 which it was previously?

Also, it seems like there is no longer any point in choosing to train up barding skills on tougher mobs for more failures and faster gains due to lesser time between the attampts.

This would also increase the time it takes from 50-100 in barding skills by 33%, from 160 hours to 213 hours, due to the cooldown increasing from 7.5 seconds in your skill chart to 10 seconds.

Please tell me I’m wrong.
