Alright, cooldowns...

So if my ability is default 15 seconds cooldown, I buy CDR Boots which is 15% CDR. It would be 2.25 seconds from the default 15? So my ability would be 13.75 seconds cooldown after buying the Boots?

Is there an easy way to work out in my head what my final cooldown would be after purchasing an item? Never been the best with maths.

15 is 100%, then 10% is 1.5. Half of 1.5 (5%) is 0.75. 1.5+0.75=2.25.
The initial 15 sec CD - 2.25 sec = 13.75 sec :)

The way I do it is 15 (default cooldown) multiplied by the 15% (Boots) = 225 Divided by 100 = 2.25 (:

It's the multiplication part, I'm just wondering if there's any tricks to working it out easily. After posting this I looked up online for some info. (:

I think I have a good method right now, but it's always good to hear other people's suggestions/thoughts/opinions. (:

Forgot to say thanks for the help !

I'm just saying guys.

15-2=13. So how in the actual **** does 15-2.25=13.75.... Try 12.75. Just saiyan.

Also. If you press k in game. It tells you your cooldowns. With the reductions. So no need to math. Especially if we can't subtract decimals. xD

Also. For an easy way to do it in your head. Take your cooldown(15) and multiply it by the reduction(15). You get 225. Move the decimal two left, like if you were doing it the long way. You get 2.25. Then do your subtraction. Easiest way to subtract is: 15-2. Then subtract .25 more. So 12.75. This is assuming you can multiply numbers as large as 90x40 in your head, or as Weird as 18x35. Also, assuming you can subtract decimals. o.O

Personally I think the way Pentargonite showed is genius (at least it is perfect for me), so I will be using that from now on. Thanks a lot mate! :D

First just take the skill and then you just move the the , one number for 10% so 60=6,0 and then you take half that for 5% so 3 and you get 9 sec total. Which gives you 51 sec CD (60x0,85=51).

If I where to do 15x15 I would have to use a calculator and then I could just as well do 15x0,15=2,25 or 15x0,85=12,75 :P

But I'm not good with numbers without using pen and paper.
