Job Trait Overview
Game Description: Quickens spellcasting. Job Traits are always active.
Reduces both the
Cast Time and the Recast Time of the spell. Fast Cast gear MUST remain equipped to gain the Recast Time effect
Fast Cast recast reduction is calculated first. Then the reduced recast value is reduced further by haste gear. See Talk:Fast Cast for testing details. Gear with
Enhances "Fast Cast" effect affects both Cast Time and Recast Time. Related effect of
Haste (and Slow) affects only Recast Time.
Recast Time cannot be reduced by more than 50%. Fast Cast Recast Time % is half the Cast Time %.
Fast Cast cannot reduce Recast Time by more than 25% (50% of Fast Cast). Fast Cast stacks with the
Cast Time and Recast Time modifying effects of Light Arts, Dark Arts and Composure. Keep in mind that Cast Time used here means the amount of time for the spell progress bar to reach 75%. Since the calculation is a multiplication, for someone with Fast Cast 1 the spell goes off at 75% * (1 - 0.1) = 67.5%.
Blue Magic Spells that Activate this Trait
Set two of the following
Blue Magic spells to get this trait:
Please note that while Blue Mage was originally capable of acquiring the full benefits of Fast Cast, there is presumably a bug currently within the game that causes BLU's Fast Cast to grant only half of the previous and standard Fast Cast I bonus.
