  1. Cross-posting this here since it would seem to be relevant to the interests of all Kheldians. And yes, I want this available (here) for my own build research efforts. Why do you ask? That's assuming you've only got "permanent" recharge buffs helping you get there and no Force Feedback procs. Light Form is a 300s recharge on a 90s duration. 300 / 90 = 3.3334 = +233.34% recharge buffing from all sources to perma. However, each Force Feedback proc (functionally) applies a -5 to the 300 before dividing by 90 in order to compute recharge needed. You can then generate a matrix of possibilities for how many Force Feedback procs are needed within the 90s duration to be able to perma Light Form so as to "close the perma gap" due to insufficient recharge. Note that since it is not possible to get Force Feedback to (usefully) proc more often than once per 5 seconds, there is a theoretical upper limit of 18 Force Feedback procs per 90s that can make a useful difference in how quickly Light Form recharges. Number of Force Feedback procs per 90s to make Light Form perma at various total recharge values from all sources: (300 - (1 * 5)) / 90 = 3.2778 = +227.78% (300 - (2 * 5)) / 90 = 3.2222 = +222.22% (300 - (3 * 5)) / 90 = 3.1667 = +216.67% (note: this means 1 Force Feedback proc every ~30s on average every 90s, which is pathetically easy to achieve) (300 - (4 * 5)) / 90 = 3.1111 = +211.11% (300 - (5 * 5)) / 90 = 3.0556 = +205.56% (300 - (6 * 5)) / 90 = 3.0000 = +200.00% (note: this means 1 Force Feedback proc every ~15s on average every 90s, which ought to be routinely achievable) (300 - (7 * 5)) / 90 = 2.9444 = +194.44% (300 - (8 * 5)) / 90 = 2.8889 = +188.89% (300 - (9 * 5)) / 90 = 2.8333 = +183.33% (note: this means 1 Force Feedback proc every ~10s on average every 90s, which can be difficult to sustain) (300 - (10 * 5)) / 90 = 2.7778 = +177.78% (300 - (11 * 5)) / 90 = 2.7222 = +172.22% (300 - (12 * 5)) / 90 = 2.6667 = +166.67% (300 - (13 * 5)) / 90 = 2.6111 = +161.11% (300 - (14 * 5)) / 90 = 2.5556 = +155.56% (300 - (15 * 5)) / 90 = 2.5000 = +150.00% (300 - (16 * 5)) / 90 = 2.4444 = +144.44% (300 - (17 * 5)) / 90 = 2.3889 = +138.89% (300 - (18 * 5)) / 90 = 2.3333 = +133.33% Since Light Form is a minimum Level 38 power, it can only be accessed at Exemplar Levels 33+ ... and the Scaling Modifiers for enhancement levels does not begin to drop until reaching Level 1-31. This means that if you slot 50+5 IOs into Light Form then Light Form will ALWAYS gain the benefit of the maximum enhancement value at all Exemplar Levels relevant to Light Form (because you lose access to the power before getting low enough to start losing enhancement value). So don't attune frankenslots in Light Form/Eclipse (unless if you're slotting for set bonuses) ... boost them! Light Form can be 3-slotted with Resistance/Recharge set IOs from Titanium Coating, Aegis and Unbreakable Guard for +94.56% recharge enhancement and 81.81% Resistance (just shy of the 85% cap). With an additional +105.44% global recharge from set bonuses (so total +200% recharge on Light Form) you would only need 6 Force Feedback procs per 90s in order to be able to perma Light Form WITHOUT NEEDING HASTEN. Being able to rack up 6 Force Feedback procs within 90s sounds like a reasonable assumption when using AoE attacks with Force Feedback procs slotted into them. And yes, you better believe that this analysis is making me question my slotting priorities for my own Kheldian builds (Peacebringer in particular!) since if I can manage to pull Hasten OUT of my Kheldian builds and still have an expectation of being able to perma Light Form/Eclipse I would totally do it.
