Notes

  • Attack speed will not stack to exceed +33% or -50%.
  • The IAS from certain consumables will stack additively up to the maximum of +33%.
  • Note that skills increasing attack speed by 33% actually increase the number of hits in a time period by 50%, and 25% increases hits by 33%.
  • Increased or decreased attack speed effects also affect attack skills that have an activation time.
