A fellow Battleborn streamer (credit to Chasington) turned me onto an Alani tip. If you throw Emergence over a cliff (off the map) or straight upwards into the air, its cooldown will be partially refunded (a la Deande if she doesn’t connect with a target). If one were to choose the Level 10 mutation where Emergence resets the Riptide and Geyser cooldowns, one could use both, then cast Emergence into the sky, then both Geyser’s and Riptide’s cooldowns will be reset and Emergence’s cooldown will be shortened, allowing you to use your skills again with a shorter cooldown until your next ult.
This seems like a really effective way to throw out as many Geysers and Riptides as possible. Might be able to sustain a skill-based attack longer with Alani against the Sentry, but I’m personally of a mind to use my skills up, then fall back to a supportive position, or focus down one target with all my skills in as short a timespan as possible.
Hope you guys test this out like I will!
