Does the recharge rate vary?

The other night, I played as a corruptor duoing with a brute. It seemed like she was able to use her demonic aura about three times more often than me. That leads me to wonder if there're ways of speeding up recharge time (or if I was just imagining things).

As a brute should, she was taking far more damage than my toon. Maybe taking damage speeds up the recharge? Maybe brutes simply recharge DA faster than corruptors at least? She was of lower level than I was (and lackeyed up to my level), so levels probably wouldn't have something to do with it. - RemiCo

Was she, by any chance, /kin and/or with Hasten? - Baalus Seth 11:45, 28 October 2006 (PDT)

Hasten would speed up the recharge on the badge power. You didn't say what kind of corruptor you are, so if you are a kinetic, speed boost would also increase the recharge speed, just like siphon speed would increase the recharge for you. Otherwise, no, none of the items (taking damage, being a brute, levels) you mention would speed up the recharge. -- StarGeekTalk page 12:46, 28 October 2006 (PDT)
Hero side, in hami raids, in the hold mosh-pit, where Accelerate Metabolisms stack 10 high or more, the recharges on these powers get as low as 4-5 minutes at times. :) - Sister Leortha 13:10, 28 October 2006 (PDT)
