Mass Effect 3 Power Cooldown Time Chart

Mass Effect 3 Power Cooldown Time Chart

Mass Effect 3 calculates the cooldown time of powers as Base Time / (100% + Weapon Weight Adjustment + Recharge Bonuses).

The table below shows the effect of Cooldown bonuses on various base recharge times. The "%" column shows what percentage of normal cooldown time is achieved from the bonus.

  • Notice that after +200% (which you can get from having a light weapon loadout), cooldown bonuses typically translate into fractions of a second and are not significant except for powers with very long base cooldown times.
  • At around +150% or less, you will probably start having trouble detonating your own power combos unless your powers have a base speed of 4 to 6 seconds. Even so, damage output becomes severely reduced.
    • Therefore the Sentinel Tech Armor + Fortification build for 90% Damage Reduction and +60% Power Force and Damage a tricky option as a power build. The damage bonus is attractive, and you can still do a reasonable approximation with fast-recharge squad members, but you won't have the string of near-continuous chain power combos you can get with an Engineer.

Squad cooldowns are not affected by weapon weight, so they typically see more benefits from cooldown bonuses.
