    Both bedlam and prism of light keys show hours

    Thesis notes stack lose timers

    I was only at shimmer for a short time my guess is that it is for all peerless keys and the reason is because it changed from sec to hours

    Could you re-post this with all the details in the bug tracking forum please? It's less likely to get lost in other threads there.

    Noticed today that the arcane focus only shows hours and not seconds. When a 6 circle focus is cast it shows 9hrs then within a second changes to 8 hrs no seconds wheras before it would go 9 then 8.59, 8.58 etc

    Maybe the problems are related? Anyone else noticed this on the focus?

    Losing timer on stackable keys is an old bug been around for long time.

    It seems that all things with timers got converted to hours with the latest publish.
    (peerless keys, quest items, and arcane focus)

    Please add minutes as well? I mean 1 hour gap time is kind of wide.... or just go with minutes?

    the hour showing is a feature, not a bug.

    I think it actually will show minutes if less than an hour left, can anyone confirm?

    It still not a bug, but an intentional feature ;)

    Then i don't see the problem whatsoever ;) Normally one should think a gamer (who is not coder) would rather have in hours/minutes and not seconds.

    It was a design flaw from the beginning that it was seconds. and now they finally corrected it, and people complain about it ? *puzzled*

    All it does is convert the seconds into hours or minutes for you, so you don't have to do headmaths :p

    Btw if it shows say 2 hours, that means there is between 2 and less than 3 hours left on the timer. The spellweaving focus now also show hours, and it shows 9 hours for a fully skilled 6er, which i know is 36000 seconds (or 10 hours for mortals), and it shows 9 hours eminently after doing it.

    That part may be a bug. I was merely commenting on the timer format.

    If once you get to an hour on the arcane focus it starts to report in minutes left I don't have a problem. As long as it is clear when it is going to run out doesn't bother me how it does it. Just didn't want it to go 2 ... 1.... and then you had to guess when it when 'poof'. :cool:

    If it got to one hour and you are worried about time, its probably a good idea to refresh it anyways.
