    fcr question

    A few days ago I crafted a 19% fcr caster amu. I want to build a 7 fpc sorc, on a fanpage I read 195% fcr would give me 8 fpc and 200% fcr would give me 7 fpc. They didn't list the fpc for 196, 197, 198 and 199% fcr. From the gear I have so far I can only get 199% fcr. Do you know if 199% fcr are enough for 7 fpc? Has anybody ever tried to build a 7 fpc sorc? Which skills should I go for with my 'high-speed' caster? (My intention is to attack the only significant weakness of the 'enigma' runeword: fcr).

    FCR % = xx FPC (frames per cast)

    0%-8% = 13 fpc
    9%-19% = 12 fpc
    20%-36% = 11 fpc
    37%-62% = 10 fpc
    63%-104% = 9 fpc
    105%-199% = 8 fpc
    200+% = 7 fpc

    The obvious sorc to play with 200+ % FCR would be a lightning sorc as they are the ones with the most to gain from fast cast (no timered spells).

    I was thinking about a 200%FCR Sorc recently and this would be the equipment you need:

    50% FCR Wizard Spike/Suicide Branch
    30% Vipermagi
    20% Lidless
    20% Magefist
    20% Arachnid Mesh
    10% x2 Rare Fastercast rings with nice mods (res/life)
    20% Crafted/Rare/Magic Amu (not sure if 20% are possible, but since i saw your 19%, might be, but VERY rare) 20% cannot spawn on rare/magic amus, only 10%
    20% Crafted Mask/Rare Circlet, Helmet whatever (very Rare here too!!)
    ------
    200%

    You would have to be really lucky with the 20% on those.

    20% fcr can spawn on crafted amus only, yes. You could also go for a Griffon if you're on ladder and want to exceed the limit a little. I always like to do that, but then again, I never tried 200% fcr so I don't know if it's the same issue with that bp as with the 105.
