Weapon speed does matter ? (Templar)

Recommended Posts

I've got this question in my mind ever since my doubt with templar's punishment which requires to use great sword or sword/shield which has better attack speed.

To be honest I can't tell the different between them :D
They both seem as fast as equally.

Well thing is I got callous strike so I don't need to proc block on shield to use break power.
My skills are never run out on both sword/shield or great sword.

So what I'll pick ? I choose great sword because dps on sword/shield will be nerf with incoming 7.0 (nerf dmg of bloodwind slash)
Punishment will be upgrade to 15 seconds cd even punishment damage is rng but a lot of times I did a great damage with it if I don't use punishment at all I'll lose damage with 7.0.

I don't have a spear on my glad yet but I guess I can't tell different between them but I'm leaning to spear because it does look better than great sword :P

Off topic a bit about SW

I testing between cast speed vs attack speed transform (don't have hybrid yet).
Found out I didn't really noticed attack speed that much but I noticed faster with cast speed.
Because I weaving with pulse.

A bit weird but yeah I love cast speed o_o

About bard again I've tested 21% cast,21% attack and 11/9 transform.

The attack speed is clearly inferior and worst next is 11/9 and best is 21% cast.
Here's the reasons why I think why result went this way.

-I weaving every skill excepted instant one with pulse which made cast speed becoming major help on this.
-I use harpist's pod as first skill because it reduced magic defense and I use it instantly because non charged version isn't bad at all.
-My first custom chain filled with 3 charging skills + 1 sec casting time skills
-I put bright strike(instant chain) as last skill on my chain which rarely chance to use it.(The reason I put it last because I don't think they doing good damage and it has slow animation)

It's just what I believed for myself. :)

I still highly recommended you to test each transform for yourself your result may different than mine.
But at this moment I must say cast is all the way for bard. :D

A bit info about cleric if you ain't healing and purely dps attack speed is all the way to go :)

I also noticed my dps being higher with a casting speed transform on SW, I tried with frigida and with tahabata and notice more dps with tahabata, i think that it depends what you prioritise on your rotation.
