    Has anyone noticed that spellweaving doesn't seem to cast any quicker if you have fast cast 4 or FC2? No protection on of course.
    It's very hard to tell if there is any speed difference between fc2 and fc4.

    I hope the devs didn't unintentionally nerf SW with the same way that Chivalry gets nerfed from FC4 to FC2 if your magery is at 70 or higher.

    Not sure, I'll have to test it later. It's very easy to tell the difference between 2 and 4 FC, especially with spells like nature's fury and word of death.

    I'm not trying to rant, I guess the spells are so painfully slow to cast, that going from 2 to 4 is hardly/if noticable. Is each FC supposed to knock off .25 sec? (ooph!)

    Ironic how a necro/mage casting wither at fc2/6 blows away (hehe) a SW/mage casting essence of wind fc4/6. Should be on par considering essence of wind even with focus 6 doesn't do as much damage and the mana cost is much higher.

    You can argue that Essence/wind gives some additional debuffs to the enemy that wither does not. Has anyone tested if in fact a focus of 6 and Essence will debuff a target's SSI -12 and FC -6? From what I've seen on those evil mages and rune beetles.... they will machine gun you down regardless. (ouch!)

    Just bringing attention to this. Seems not enough testing on spellweaving as other skills. We did find out Arcane Empowerment was broken after how many years? and they fixed it so it seems.

    I do want to THANK the devs for the arcane circles at the banks though. :thumbsup:

    this leads me to believe that your magery is over 69.9, thus meaning that spellweaving and chiv will be capped at 2 fc. if u have 69.9 or less magery than spellweaving and chiv will be capped at 4 fc

    After testing, I saw a significant increase in speed from FC2 weaving and FC4.

    My template:
    120 magery, 120 weaving, and the rest...

    Spellweaving does not fall under the -2 FC cap from 70 magery.

    Of course wither also has a MUCH smaller AoE so it sort of balances out, I find myself using essence of wind far more often than I use wither (all on the same char) Only time I cast wither is when I am being hit so much that I need to caster the faster of the two spells. :)

    Also not trying to thread hijack, but Arcane Empowerment *really* needs to either have its cast time reduced or duration increased. The ratio of cast time to duration is so bad that I frequently find myself deliberately not bothering to cast it even with a level 6 focus.

    I could fully agree with this...but I still take the time to cast it, the difference in power of the spells is noticeable enough to take the time to cast it. :p

    Yeah, it's definitely noticeable, but it's also tedious. With a level 6 focus, I don't think it'd be unreasonable for AE to last for a minute at least.

    *grumble*
    Focus 6 is nice but still... It's still painfully slow to cast all these Spellweaving spells (except for Attunement).

    Such potential... such potential.
    I guess I'm never happy.:wall:
