SM Best Xform?

SM needs both Attack and Cast speed If you can't afford Viola/Modor or you are too lazy to consistently change between them then Frigida will be good enough

So pretty much any kind works

I actually was going to make a post asking about something related to this. There's different need between PvE and PvP though. With PvE you're casting a lot more vs PvP where things like buff stripping and kb and soul are 0s casts and more animation dependent. 

First, Modor: NOPE. -- Don't let AT's/Gunners tell you how great it is. For SMs, it's most definitely useless in PvE, and barely worth anything in PvP, unless you think you can kill someone off 24s cd Soul tether and Erosion.

I think 35% cast vs 23% atk/17% cast is more interesting since they've seemingly removed the old cast speed 50% cap. Here's where I was going to post on the subject: 0s cast vs. instant cast. I'm not sure if it's just in my head but I notice having higher cast speed makes 0s cast skills faster, which makes little sense but still. (I'd like someone else to verify/confirm this.)

I think I'd go with Viola for PvE for sure, and it's a toss between Frigida and Viola for PvP, depending on your latency, reaction time, and skill combination and whether the situation calls for more 0s skills (soul, implo, ero, earth) or cast time skills (nightmare/fear, silence, pain/cyclone). Also on your daevaenion skills unlocked ofc, like Frigida for spamming inescapable choke -- which is the last one I just cannot seem to get :(
