I'm testing twisting speed 5 and end 5, while sprinting, and finding my endurance still goes down when twisting, even though visually it appears both buffs are still up 100% of the time. Given I haven't played the game in a ridiculous amount of years I thought I'd ask here first - how do I twist successfully? Am I doing it right if I see both buffs at all times, or is this just a bug?

My guess is that you're twisting too quickly. Each time you finish a song it takes endo, and the songs last long enough for you to:
Speed ... X seconds... Endo ... X Seconds ... Speed

It sounds like you're not waiting between casting the songs and thus using more endurance than you need.

If you're not putting at least one point into Long Wind you're going to have serious issues with twisting.

even if you twist at max speed, your endu will go down only very slowly, you need lw1 or it doesnt work :)

Thanks :) The issue was long wind. I didn't realize I was using endo to play a song.
