    Post by endnuen on Sat Apr 21, 2012 4:34 pm

    Hello everyone.
    I was wondering, what is the difference in casttime for the different dex. levels?

    Crystal souls spear for instance, at 20 dex and 40 dex?

    An doing a sorceror build and want to know if it's worth going for the dex, or make the weapons enchanted (Rickard's rapier in particular)

    I keep the dex low on all my sorcerers now, the difference isn't enough to justify leveling up dex as far as I'm concerned. However, my first sorceress has 40 dex, so I can test the different spell timing on her, then compare it to one of my 12 dex ones.

    I can't see Mildred's link, but even if my info is redundant this is still something I've been meaning to check for myself.

    Try mixing up spells with different casting times to throw their dodge timing out.

    The difference between 10 dex and 35 or so doesn't seem like much, but the difference between 35 and 45, (the max) seems huge.

    Both my mage and my pure pyro build have 45 dex and I can't imagine it otherwise.

    There is a video in the resources thread you might want to check out.

    I personally find sorceries extremely viable in PvP. I love to Soul Spear BS Fishers. They start to strafe, and I unlock turn while casting and nuke them in the face. Can't wait till I get CSS. As well Homing Masses are great for forcing people somewhere. I actually carry casts of the Regular Homing mass so they assume, "Oh, just a bit of damage." Then suddenly I cast the Crystal version, and they assume "I can kill him through this attack and just take a bit of damage." And bam, 1k health gone on their part. There are a lot of interesting ways to use sorceries in PvP, no matter how confined of space you are in.

    I use 22, but I plan on bringing him to 30 before 120.

    I guess you then buff with the crystal mass or enchant your weapons?

    Sometimes I buff my weapons, typically a Ricard's +15, but usually I just go with a +5 Velka.

    I can't comment on Crystal Soul Spear directly, but Dex definitely effects casting time. This is the best video I have found showing the effects of Dex on casting time...

    I had a guy throw a fireball at me once, I naturally dodge, alot of movement, he does the same animation, I charge.... the ground around him errupts in pillars of flame instead... I die.
    I immediately pm'd him and complimented him on his pyro trickery. Was a really good learning experience for me. I now fully believe that magic is deadly when used correctly in the right hands.
