      Adventure Talents and Cooldowns

      These new pet Talents seem to be almost a "throw away" sort of thing. I don't see too much interest in them from anyone else, but I've manifested a couple on some new pets, and would like to share these thoughts:

      1. Whose idea was it to make these long cooldowns between uses for what are basically non-game-changing abilities? Finding reagents and Wooden Chests is part of what makes exploring fun, but now I find myself frustrated by having to wait SIX MINUTES before opening the next chest with my pet? Why? Have any of the designers waited six minutes to do something in the game that should take pretty much no time at all? You guys are the ones who put multiple chests in an area all this time.

      2. Life Finder has yet to be confirmed to even work. I have opened close to 50 Wooden Chests with my Soulful Draconian and have yet to see an Essence of Life elixir. This wouldn't be as frustrating if I haven't wasted 300+ minutes of my life waiting around to open the second chest in an area. I pride myself on knowing where to find reagents and chests quickly, so basically this mechanic penalizes me for having this knowledge. Cooldowns should be 10 to 30 seconds, I think, to make testing and using these talents viable as an in-game activity.

      3. Ice Scout is awesome, except for the cooldown. THIS talent, I appreciate -- bonus reagents AND gold? Very nice for an up-and-coming wizard, whether they Craft or not. Now I want to look for the Scout talents for other schools and manifest those on some pets.

      Re: Adventure Talents and Cooldowns

      Sometimes between farming runs I might remember to switch to my Myth Finder pet to open a few chests. The drop rate for elixirs definitely feels way too low. Haven't gotten a single one of them yet. And yes, that cooldown timer is awful! I never felt very efficient opening one chest with this then having to wait to open the other (or just opening the second chest regularly).

      I should give the Scout talents a try, just need to figure out which of these pets actually has them. And then lament that half of them are No Trade for mysterious reasons.

      Edit: Hey, whadd'ya know? That new Ice Wolf pet has the Ice Scout talent!

      Another reason the long Cooldown is a bad idea, while waiting to collect something, someone can come along and snipe it out from under you.

      Re: Adventure Talents and Cooldowns

      I haven't found any record of somebody getting the pet adventure talents that require opening wooden chests who have gotten the advertised item (the Finder talents, Elemental Retriever, etc.), so I believe it's likely there's something wrong with them. The Scout talents have gold as a "failure" indicator, while the former talents don't seem to have any indication they're working properly. I asked about it months ago on the game's message boards and on social media, but never got any official response.

      As for the cooldowns themselves, I think these talents were intended as an additional bonus to regular play, although including (currently) exclusive items like Ice Flax doesn't help it seem that way, and getting nothing from wooden chest talents makes it appear to be nothing more than a time waster.
