    Charge Speed?

    What factor determines the speed that charge goes?
    IAS
    FR/W
    Or something else?
    I see chargers using Fanat and Vigour and I can't tell which one is better

    Vigor gives speed and i think FR/W gives u speed too but still u get it from vigor. when u charge onto your opponent it is best to use fanaticism beacuse of the dmg%.

    + the slower the weapon the slower downswing is it when ur at ur opponent, so use a decently fast opponent. (i tested it and the slower weapon u have the more chance is it to miss beacuse of the knockback in charge, in some cases the downswing was so slow that the opponent was out of reach before i was able to hit em).

    I dont know if its true, but I have heard that if vigor is active your moving speed on charge is faster, and the fast Crusader is harder to catch too :lol:
    but IAS should add you some speed I think..

    No to IAS, no to FRW.

    For Charge, only vigor affects it. FRW only affects when you are walking or running but not when charging.

    is this a fact? ias affects the weapon swing at the end of charge? from what i was told a charge is a charge ... only thing that can be affected is the speed ... and with speed only vigor works with it ... but i *could* be wrong ... how sure are you?

    well, basically, the thing with the misses ain't got that much do with charge, since charge is KB+wepdmg, so if the KB takes effect before the wep lands, you won't hit. or that is how i'd read it.

    kb checks after weapon hit. Only vigor effects charge speed (and conversely, holy freeze/slows target effects). In essence, it doesn't matter at the end of a charge if you are using a phase blade or a thundermaul, the swing speed is the same.
