Fast Cast?

#1UndrtakerPosted 7/25/2009 5:34:15 AM
I got Fast Cast for Myuria, leveled it up to lvl 10, and assigned it as a battle skill, but doesn't seem like her casting is any faster while I'm controlling her.
What am I missing?

There's a small chance it will activate every time you cast. If it does then you'll see "Fast Cast" to the left of the screen.

Weird. To me, it seems that the activation rate is 100% oO

In my experience with it, it is a rare occasion that it doesn't trigger. The chances of it not triggering seem to be very very low once you get it to level 10. Seems about the only time it doesnt trigger, for me anyway, is in a crucial situation when Im trying to resurrect some one.

I see it occurring once in a long time when the AI controls here, and never when I do

I don't see it activate very often but I'm not sure if it's level 10 or not.

Fast Cast will be activated if you are using skills from skill menu in battle.
If you are using symbols with chain combos (RT/LT) it won't have any effect.

That is true but upon some recent testing it seems using Ice Needles with a Chain Combo only takes about ~2 seconds to cast and Fast Cast doesnt show up however when using it from the menu it takes about ~4 seconds(~8 seconds without Fast Cast) to cast and the skill shows up.

So that leads me to conclude that Chain Combos decrease the casting time with or without Fast Cast. Too bad Fast Cast doesnt apply though, I can only imagine how much more damage casters could pump out.
