— In-game description


  • The weapon skill needs to finish activating, or be an interrupted channeled skill, and the buff must still be active, in order to receive the reduced cooldown. Skills with a longer cast time, such as Rapid Fire, Barrage, and Whirling Defense thus have a shorter window to receive the bonus.
  • Entering or exiting Celestial Avatar, swapping with bundle items or swapping to an aquatic weapon will also trigger this trait.
Interrupting a weapon skill cast by entering or exiting Celestial Avatar will immediately consume the buff and reduce the recharge of the interrupted skill.
