I don’t see anything from the Zenith Elementalist that grants CDR, so I take it Crusader’s Fervor + equipment is getting it that high? 80% CDR is definitely something that can get toned down, most likely through diminishing returns the more you invest in the skill. It also depends on what equipment you use to get the +4 to all skills, as the more skill points you have, the easier it is to making something absurdly powerful.
More reports on my end:
I can’t apply a 2H augment to my 2H staff. 1H augments don’t work either, so it must be that augments don’t work with staves.
Putting aside the fact that a level 50 spear requires 550 cunning (more than level 94 guns), I assumed spears are melee weapons, and if they are, Wolverine’s reduced Cunning requirements are not working on them.
