        Pretty simple request, really. Under the current system, the Drill and Awaken (free premium roll) timer run off a 24 hour cooldown based on when they\'re used. This results in what I basically call a timer creep. One day you do it at 12:05, the next it\'s 12:06, you forget or can\'t get to your PC and then it\'s 5:15, and so on. All these little misses eventually add up to losing a possibility to run these once you hit that 23:59 threshold. The fact the Drill UI requires you to re-enter if a cooldown expires also, by default, adds a few seconds to the process even if you are generally on top of them.

        So, there are two solutions:
        1) All of these timers get changed to 23 hour cooldowns.
        2) They reset automatically at daily rollover, free to be used whenever during the day.

        Personally, I\'m a fan of #2, but #1 still cuts on the creep potential.

Request: Drill and Awakening Timer adjustment.

        About once a month instead of running a 24-hour drill, I reset the creeping by doing 2 8-hour drills, and then at reset, which I\'m usually up for, I start within the first minute with the 24-hours again. same with the Awakening Free-Diamond draw, once as month I let it go so I can restart it early with;the next reset.

        An alternative option for the devs to consider:
3) Option to Kill the CD (with no penalty) after 30 min to Zero

        3rd solution) leave it as it is and don\'t complain about it. This is as minor of an issue as it gets.

        I only do 8 hr drills. I like to be able to max my devotion the first time I get online after rest, and if I still have drills running I cant start new ones.

You realize this would fix your problem with 24hr attempts, right? 8hrs could be eliminated entirely or converted to a 3 charge system where Hard takes 3 charges, but Normal only 1.
