I got an offhand with HSR.
My question is: is there a lower limit?
An skill has casting time of 1/2 sec, would HSR make ir 1/4 of a sec?
Or an skill with 1/4sec would be 1/8 sec...
EDIT: I know that 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8 are basicly the same thing to us, but I really would like to know.

Halves Skill Casting limit?
08-09-2006, 15:54 #2
there is no lower limit as far as i know. Spells with 1/4 cast time get cast at 1/8 if the item effect kicks in.
Keep in mind that the half cast time only applies to spell type skills. It is also a bit of a gamble since at best it has a 20% chance.
Using two items does not give you a 40% chance either. There might be some post that calculates your chances with two items of that kind.

doesnt HSR stand for halves spell recharge ?, in which case it wont change the casting time only the recharge time?

For half recharge there is a lower limit 50% for combined skills, though individual skills can exceed this. Currently there is no lower limit to reducing casting time.

For skill recharge at least, and I assume it applies to casting time also, if you hold two items, a wand and offhand, that both have a 20% chance of halfing recharge, what you get in total is a 32% chance that you half recharge, *and* a 4% chance that you quarter recharge.

It used to be that way until the July 13th Update:

Ok, while you can no longer get 1/4 spell recharge from 2 20/20, you *can* get 1/4 casting time.
