    CL Faster Cast break points

    I read this forum everyday but have yet to post on it, but finally I have something I really need help with. Breakpoints for faster cast. I have a CL sorc and I have no idea what FC to aim for? I have used the search on this forum, on 2 others and google to try and find calculations for it but the only 3 links I found didnt work! So please excuse me if I over looked any but i searched for half an hour, I really need to know these! thanks in advance

    I also read here a lot, but have never posted. i recently made a cl sorc and I finally found the breaks on some lod post but i dont remember where. The guide above does not apply, (and I think it's obsolete for lod as well, though I can't be sure since I never played lod.)

    Lightning / Chain Lightning Faster Cast Rates
    FCR % - FPC
    0 - 19
    7 - 18
    15 - 17
    23 - 16
    37 - 15
    52 - 14
    78 - 13
    117 - 12


    I got the 120 fcr by shard, magefist, wall of the eyeless, 2 x fcr rings and fcr ammy, but i usually end up with 80 fcr in hell, so i can use better resist gloves and shield.

    FYK, those are also the breakpoints for Inferno. Not that anyone cares...

    Doesn't Inferno have some bug still? I vaguely remember reading that.

    That guide is from 1.09, when Chain Lightning was affected by weapon IAS, not FCR. That was very odd and now in 1.10+ it has normal FCR breakpoints, but as noted, slightly different speeds as the base speed is slower at 19fpa versus 13fpa with no FCR. Here are the breakpoints:

    Frames/FCR for Lightning and CL
    19 - 0%
    18 - 7%
    17 - 15%
    16 - 23%
    15 - 37%
    14 - 52%
    13 - 78%
    12 - 117%

    Frames/FCR for other untimered skills like teleport, fireball, etc:
    13 - no FCR
    12 - 9%
    11 - 20%
    10 - 37%
    9 - 63%
    8 - 105%
    7 - 200%

    Inferno is bugged in several ways:
    1) Player Inferno causes less than the listed damage on the lying character screen (LCS) (I believe just one-third of the listed damage)
    2) Monster Inferno causes more damage than supposed (allegedly)
    3) Inferno strikes only one target, although it appears to pierce several targets.

    So I'm not planning on building an Inferno sorc anytime soon!

    I believe these bugs applies to Arctic Blast as well, BTW.
