I have been reading and told that dexterity has some effect on the cast time of spells. I have a couple of questions.

1.) Does it effect all cast times (miracles, sorceries, pyromancies) or just pyromancies?

2.) What are the break pts? Do spells cast a tiny bit faster for each pt in dex or at incremental levels?

3.) Are there any videos w/ proof? I hate to be so skeptical but the rumors of str affecting swing speed and dex affecting roll speed were clearly just that, rumors.

I'm gonna have to call BS on this one.

I have 62 dexterity and it seems just like it was at 10 dexterity.

Dex does not make you do things faster. Never has, never will.

I was afraid dex did nothing for spells. The only contradictory evidence is here: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/606312-dark-souls/60690166

however I don't have a nico video account to watch those. Does anyone have a link to videos on youtube of something similar? I never found anything with a search.

The only this dex is good for is dmg with dex weapons. It does nothing else. Same with str.

If you want to move faster then you need to have less than 25% encumbrance or use the so called ninja ring. It will not however have any inpact on speed with weapons or spells.

Haven't tested it myself but it's clear as day in the video.

Yes I know that dex does not make you move faster, that is not what I asked. I am also aware of how encumbrance works.

well after watching that it does look like going from 24 to 99 dex slightly, and I do mean SLIGHTLY, increases casting speed. It does NOT look worth it though as 99 is not very practical. Thank you for the link.
