Would the cutter benefit from faster attack speed, or is there a speed cap? I have a cutter, and my friend can craft the SwiftStrike buckler, so I was thinking of getting him to craft me one... but I don't want to shell out the 200 energy and end up with a useless, and weaker shield and 200 energy gone to waste.

Does anyone have personal experience with this combo?

I've never used the combo before, but considering how fast the cutter line already is, I doubt you would even notice the increase in speed. It would be more useful with the heavier/slower swords. Also, it might not even be worth it, since you can't upgrade it.

You don't really need more attack speed with a Cutter, it's fast enough already. It is pretty awesome though - I have a high AS Dread Venom Striker and when combined with Swiftstrike Buckler, the speed is really insane.

I'd recommend getting a Swiftstrike anyway, it's hella useful for anything that's not a bomb, and especially if you're planning on using the Avenger or Faust.

I went ahead and got it. Recorded 60fps with fraps before and after. Before a full swing was roughly 2.75 seconds. After it was almost 2 seconds on the dot. Quite the improvement and in fact it was noticeable before I even crunched the numbers.
