    Default Focus out of combat

    The way focus is handled out of combat is silly at the moment:
    1. While levelling in open world, multiple times I've used a travel time ability (vorpal salvo), gained fury, and then had then 10s tickdown finish before it lands causing me to lose that fury
    2. In open world content, waiting the full 10 seconds can really slow things down
    3. There are abilities you can use out of combat that move your focus bar after then 10s has finished allowing you to start combat at whatever fury/cunning you please
    4. (Side note: when I "die" using the dervish prevent-next-death ability, sometimes my focus resets to harmony)

    Please take another pass on how this works. Getting a buff once immediately on leaving combat isn't working well for me. I think removing this reset to harmony is the simplest thing for a player to understand/use. This also simplifies things if you introduce a stealth mechanic or abilities that don't put the user in combat.

    Maybe replace it with a 5s channel that just moves focus to harmony, similar to channeled abilities that casters have to regain mana slowly?

    I like this idea. Having the options is the best things. Some specs benefit from starting in Harmony, others benefit from starting at Fury/Cunning.

    Primal Focus
    Self Utility
    Instant
    Cooldown: 5 seconds
    Resets Focus to 0 Harmony. Only usable out of combat.

    They may not be able to have an ability that moves focus instantly even with an out of combat requirement, if they introduce stealthing.
