  5. Timed Refresh


Timed Refresh

I just did a refresh on one of the skills. It's been a while now since I've done one of these. I wanted to get through the entire skill tree and come back through and master each section later. Basically, I don't know if this is a new feature/bug or something that I just missed when I did the first few skills.

I'm curious what the point of the timer on the refresh section is, though. When the timer expired, I expected that I'd be finished and have to try again (like with the practice), but it seems that it just stayed at zero. After finishing successfully, it showed my total time. This seems to be true for a bonus round as well.

If this is how it works, maybe it should say that we should try to complete it in two minutes when we start instead of indicating that two minutes is all we have. Maybe it should start counting up after 2 minutes so you know you're still being timed?

Or am I just missing something here?

Oh, I just finished one that wasn't the last in the skill and realized that I only got half of the skill points.

It makes more sense now, but some heads up for this could be nice. Also, is there a way the things that we didn't complete in time could be marked (in the same way that we see how many hearts we lost) so we could know what needs practice if we come back to it later on?
