On my Ranger I have an ability called 'Sharpening Stone', as follows;

enter image description here

I also have a trait called 'Keen Edge', which is supposed to trigger Sharpening Stone automatically whenever I reach 75% health - according to the text;

enter image description here

However, I have never seen Sharpening Stone go on cooldown unless I have specifically used the ability. Is this how Keen Edge is supposed to work, or am I missing something?

  • When your health goes below 75% you should see the buff icon for Sharpening Stone (above your utility skills).

Keen Edge (and other similar "Use [ability] when [X happens]" traits) grant you the effects of Sharpening Stone for free, automatically, when your health drops below 75%.

It doesn't matter if your actual Sharpening Stone ability is on cooldown, or even if it isn't on your action bar.

    It's worth mentioning that those traits tend to have internal cooldowns of their own - often not mentioned in the tooltip, and not necessarily the same as the cooldown of the ability itself.
