  • Quicken boosts the cooldown rate of Phaselock. It does not reduce the cooldown by the percent listed, but instead causes the cooldown timer to progress at an increased rate.
  • Adding other cooldown modifiers follows the same fixed pattern for Borderlands 2 cooldown effects: Actual Cooldown Time = Original Cooldown / (1 + total additional cooldown rate). For instance, adding a 15% cooldown reduction Binder class mod and a 10% cooldown reduction Proficiency relic to rank 5 Quicken (30%, for a total additional cooldown reduction of 55%) causes Phaselock to be usable after 13s / 1.55 = 8.37 seconds. 
  • Thoughtlock increases the base cooldown time from 13s to 17s, rather than increasing the time after Quicken is applied (that is, rank 5 Quicken does NOT cause Thoughtlock to recover in 14 seconds, but rather after 13 seconds). Quicken therefore has a slightly more noticeable effect on Thoughtlock than on standard Phaselock.
