    Casting Speeds for Pyromancies? 35 or 45?

    Post by Automancer on Wed Dec 12, 2012 1:25 am

    Apparently there's a slight increase in casting speed around 35~45. Others have told me that the difference between 40~45 is unnoticeable but i really have no idea. Which would you recommend?

    Judge for yourself. IIRC, the difference between 40 and 45 is like 1/7th of a second, but it's been a while since I bothered to measure it.

    Oh, sweet! I never knew there was a video like that. Thanks! Looks like i'll be going 40 then.

    apparently (i just did a post on something similar) the extra 5 gives you enough to chain

    Also, how do you guys cancel out Pyromancy castings? I've seen it with Miracles as well.

    The cast cancelling is called a pivot cancel. You more or less just smack your left analog stick down then back up to cancel the cast. I'm not too well versed in caster builds, so someone else may be able to provide a better explanation. EWGF also has a demo on his YT channel if I recall correctly.

    I've always called it fizzling, doesn't really matter what you call it so long as you can tell what they're talking about.

    Move forward as you're casting, then pivot 180 degrees backwards. This has to be done early on in the spell's animation and is not very useful on most spells.

    That's very important to any decent Pyromancer.

    I think Dex only starts boosting casting speed around 35, and maxes at 45. So your casting speed at 35, or even 40, is close to what it would be if your Dex was at base! So if you're looking to increase your casting speed, go all the way to 45. It's a small enough difference as it is, going halfway would cost more than going all the way (base dex to 40, for half the speed increase vs base dex to 45 for the full boost, think about it!).
