Reduced Skill cooldowns, up to a -75% reduction.
The near -75% cooldown is handy when starting to reset multiple times as being able to use Powersurge every 2.5 minutes, The Dark Ritual every 2 hours (1 with Reload), up to 20 times, and a full ability use ([1+]2+3+4+5+8+7) every 15 minutes speeds up floor progression.
It is possible to reduce buffing skill cooldowns to under the duration of the buff at sufficiently high levels, enabling continuous use. Ignoring relic bonuses, if all individual-skill ancients and Vaagur are leveled evenly until this point (due to their having equal power-curve cost equations) then Clickstorm/Powersurge become constantly usable when the respective ancients are level 85 (total HS cost: 2.32e26), Lucky Strikes/Metal Detector reach this at ancient level 213 (total HS cost: 7.90e64), and Golden Clicks/Super Clicks reach this at ancient level 436, although Vaagur doesn't need to be leveled past about level 280 (total HS cost: 7.10e131).
Vaagur's summon cost is the player's current summon cost.
Vaagur's cost per level is 2n, with n being equal to the next level.
All costs except the summon cost can be reduced by Chor'gorloth.
The cooldown reduction follows the equation:
-% cooldown reduction = 75×(1-e-0.026n)
- Vaagur is named after a reddit user named Vaagur, who often made posts asking about the release date of patch 0.12.
- Vaagur's cost was reduced in patch 0.12b, but raised again in patch 1.0.
- Vaagur effectively maxes out at level 1440.
