    It's not speculation anymore. I just did a quick test with my Elementalist that shows that the faster cast/recharge items are mutiplicative. I used a 20% Faster Recharge air wand and a 20% Faster Recharge / 20% Faster Cast storm artifact, and cast 50 Windborne Speed's on myself (Windborne Speed has a 1s cast and 5s recharge).

    Here are the results:

    Casting time:
    --0.5s: 14 / 50 (28%)
    --1s: 36/50 (72%)

    Recharge time:
    --1s: 2 / 50 (4%)
    --2s: 20 / 50 (40%)
    --5s: 28 / 50 (56%)

    The existence of 1s recharge times proves that the effects are multiplicative.

    Although the number of 0.5s casts (14) is higher than expected (10), this difference is not significant (p < 0.12).

    Note that the fast recharge times are 1s and 2s, not 1.25s and 2.5s, because Guild Wars rounds recharge times to integer values.

    Thus, the expected distribution would look like this:
    Cast time:
    --50% time: 20%
    --100% time: 80%

    Recharge time:
    --25% time: 4%
    --50% time: 32%
    --100% time: 64%
