      Go-to on Charge blade : - 20% on charge phials - 20% on charge sword/shield animation - 20% on super amped element discharge animation The difference on charging is pretty impressive, and only one charged double dash can be enough to fully charge the weapon.

        Not worth it for Dragon Piercer when you can aim-dodge to go up charge levels, I'll be using that space for Evade and Stamina boosts instead.

              Very curious about how it affects CB "super amped element discharge" and "charged elemental slash" (R2 circle + hold triangle).

              Does it affect the speed of its execution? because it is "charging" animation (insert sword to charged shield) before unleashing the move. If so, I kinda understand why all end CB sets use focus skill.

              But if it only inc the phial charging speed, then somewhat waste since 2 charged circle "sword double slash" can easily get full phial already at base.

                This does make me think; would it work on both the switch axe's auto filling meter for sword mode and the vial awakening meter?

                  Wanna put this out there if it's unknown, this does affect the Heavy Bowgun's Special Ammo 'reloading' time. Can reduce Wyvernsnipe's cooldown from 80 seconds to 64 with Focus 3. Unsure about the Light Bowgun's mines but I'd assume it works for them as well.

                    It takes Wyrmheart HBG 250 seconds to recharge fully (4m 10s). Using lvl 1 focus, which is 5% cdr, it should in theory reduce wymheart recharge by 12.5 seconds making it 237.5 recharge or 3m 57.5 sconds. ~ After test I have concluded that Focus does indeed work with HBG Wyrmheart. I have consistently landed on 3 mins 57 seconds recharge with lvl 1 Focus.

                      It takes 60 second for a single charge of wyrmblast to recharge. This is also the same amount of time it takes for a charge of wyrmblast to expire once placed if not used. Also Focus armour skill affects wyrmblast. Using Focus lvl 1, 5% coolddown on weapons with guage or charge, it reduces the recharge time for wyrmblast charges to 57 seconds. I have been able to replicate this several times. Also basic math 5% of 60 is 3, so saves 3 seconds.
