    Blizzard cast delay

    Hello everyone
    Is there any way to reduce the 1.8 s cast delay ?
    Usually after i cast blizzard i have 2 wait this 1.8 s to use teleport but, sometimes i can do it without w8ing.
    My question is, how is it possible to do it everytime time.

    As far as I know, there is no way to reduce the built in cooldown for any skill, including Blizzard. With that being said, the delay that Blizzard implements on teleport and other skills is not nearly as long as 1.8 seconds. I haven't precisely timed it myself, but it seems less than 1 second. I would guess that lag or other distractions would account for the perceived time difference.

    Fcr will not benefit cooldown time for skills like blizz and orb. I think the reason for people choosing glacial spike over ice bolt is because there is no cooldown for glacial spike but there is for ice bolt. So glacial spike benefits high on fcr.

    Ice Blast has no cooldown. The reason people pick glacial over blast is simply because glacial spike travels faster. The splash is also convinient versus certain characters.

    Cast delay is the time you need to wait between spamming blizzard.
    Change from blizz to teleport is different thing, but is there some delay (which is not comparative to fcr) too?
    I need to do some research, cause i didnt know about it :jig:
