    Here's the question
    Is there somewhere we can find a laysmens formula for the time it takes to cast all Spells at all circles. Necro, SW, Magery, Ninjitsu & Bush.
    Id like to know these times to set delays in macro's on multiple accounts using SA.
    Trial and error would take alot of time.
    All are maxed in fc & fcr efficiency

    For Magery the general formula is quite simple.

    At maxed out FC/FCR, the casting time is:

    Casting time = 0.25 sec * (Circle+1)

    (0.5 sec for First Circle, 2.25 sec for Eighth Circle)

    There are a few spells that do not respect this formula however:

    - Arch Cure has a casting time of 1.00 sec instead of the normal 1.25 sec for Fourth Circle spells
    - Blade Spirits and Summon Creature take much longer than normal 5th Circle spells to cast, according to uo.com the casting time should be 7.5 seconds

    For the other spellcasting skills, you will have to experiment by yourself since there is no general rule and every spell has a different casting time...

    You could also try to use the WaitForTarget action instead of using manual delays, though. It should trigger the targeting exactly at the right moment, and the latest patch also removed extra delays from the macros.
