So does that mean, they lowered the cooldown but nerfed what we could have, thus nullifying what we wanted in the process? Again though, I am trying to get in-game confirmation as I have seen mis-communications from SE before.
I'm a being a bit cautious about it myself. I translate it as "You can only carry 8 at a time instead of 16 like in beta, but you can now exchange successful leves until there are none left that you haven't attempted. Then once the 36 hour window passes you can do it all over again."
Honestly, with a static group with which to leve share, 36 hours will likely seem like nothing.
