To be honest, a taru with a Prism Cape and regular nuking gear with this, can get 77+40 INT and 319 Elemental Magic with merits. -- Darthporisius 16:40 23 October 2009 (Hawaii) PS sry still learning Wiki
Grimoire: Reduces Spellcasting Time
Appears to be the exact same potency as the Scholar's Loafers, for anyone wondering. Got these December 8, night they were added to game, and did some testing after dynamis ended. Furthermore, they do stack with the AF feet's grimoire: reduces spellcasting time effect. --Almacien 23:25, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
- SCH might just be getting to uneven with the af and relic fast cast like effect stacking sub rdm and matching art they can achive fast cast tier 5 basicly though with the 9% on the af "kind of odd its not 10%" youll need the fast cast earring to do this SCH can now achive the same fast cast speeds as rdm/sch wonder if SE will be kind to the RDMs and give us tier 5 fast cast without /sch some day -- Orivaan - Midgardsormr 22:00, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
It appears this is worded like this for a reason. "Fast Cast" reduces both Casting Time (CT) and Recast Time (RT) of the spells, as does the "Grimoire". However, I've noticed a difference.
Fast Cast's reduction to RT and CT is not equal, RT is always 1/2 of CT; Job Abilities, Equipment, whatever, if you had "Fast Cast +30" then your casting time would be -30% and Recasting Time would be -15%.
"Grimoire" reductions in both CT and RT are equal. "Arts" grant a -10% CT and -10% RT to spells (associated with the correct arts, I don't think I *need* to say that, those reading should know this.). Items such as this Relic hat grant an "Grimoire"-enhancement. This is *NOT* "Fast Cast" and is worded like this because there is a difference. Casting Time & Recasting Time are the *same*. So something with -5% CT gives -5% RT, not -2.5% RT (like "Fast Cast" would do). --Setherio 18:08, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
