I was reviewing some bard pieces and was looking at the Inyanga Shalwar +1 that came out in the ambuscade. On it, it states "Song effect duration +15". I know with some items the "+(number)" and "+(number)%" is different. Has anyone tested to see if the "+15" is 15 seconds or 15%?

It is a replacement. The Increases song duration by 10% on Marduk is 10% of the base 2 minutes. That's 10% of 120secs which is 12 seconds. Other duration bonuses from gear don't affect this value. N/T does double it though.

I got a 2:19 with Minne just pants and 2:24 with pants and Kali...first seems to indicate its +15% and second seems to be the same as 5+15 = 20%, or am I missing something?

I tested with March. With all my same casting gear I generally use. These were not with N/T either. Was there some particular thing you wanted to see?

Here's lulaby II:

Pantless
20:36:54 slept
20:38:53 woke up
Duration: 1:59

20:39:10 slept
20:41:10 woke up
Duration: 2:00

Marduk +1
20:22:52 slept
20:24:58 woke up
Duration: 2:06

20:31:13 slept
20:23:19 woke up
Duration: 2:06

Inyanga +1
20:25:03 slept
20:27:11 woke up
Duration: 2:08

20:27:31 slept
20:29:39 woke up
Duration: 2:08

Edit: note I do have 14 Lullaby JP's.

So it's +15% then?

You can see that it's not adding 15 seconds to lullaby. While we would predict +9 seconds added to a 60 second base song, we observe +8 seconds. It could be that it's actually only +14%, or it could be that something else is causing the disparity. Point is, it's a percentage boost rather than a static one.

Yeah, percent of the base song duration. Isn't that how all brd gear works?

Base: 60
Kali +5% 3sec
Gjallarhorn +40% 24sec
Matinee +10% 6sec
Hongreline +10% 6sec
Inyanga +15% 9sec
Brioso +11% 6.6sec...?
+14secs JP
Total:128.6 secs or 2:08

As for the slight time variance, I'd say it's probably due to timestamps being a bit off or Brioso's .6 screwing things up.
