    Thought that this could be useful info to you.


    All frame times are with a weapon that has Weapon Speed Modifier (WSM) = 0, except for the 2-handed maces, since there is no such weapon with WSM=0.

    If the game is running as smoothly as it should, there are 25 frames per second.

    1h-"swing" weapons are swords, axes, maces, scepters and wands. Orbs too, but I gave those their own line.



    Code:
                                    Act 1 Rogue Act 2 Guard Act 5 Barbarian Amazon Assassin
    Dagger                                                                    12      14
    1h-"Swing"                                                    16          13      14
    2h-Sword                                                      16          17      22
    2h-Axe, Staff, Polearm                            8                       17      18
    2h-Mace (Maul, wsm 10)                                                    20      21

    Bow                                  15                                   13      15

    Some notes:

    (Druid in wereform is slowest of all, with everything, when he uses basic Attack. But he has several melee skills he can use, which are faster, so I'll leave the were-druids out of the rest of the notes)

    * Amazon is the fastest class with bow and with javelin/spear, as would be expected. The diffence is smaller with bow than with javelin/spear.

    * Everyone has the same (quite slow) speed with crossbows, except Assassin who is one frame slower. Shouldn't they be good with gadget tinkering?

    * Barbarian is at or near the top with almost every weapon type, but not with 2h-maces.

    * Amazon is very quick with daggers, with Barbarian a close second.

    * Sorceress is the fastest class with every 2-handed melee weapon except swords and spears. Not what you would expect as a novice to the game.

    * Necromancer is not quick with weapons. He only beats the Druid with some 1-handed weapons.

    One of the most useful tables around. I have an earlier posting of this bookmarked and regularly use it when planning, especially for single-pass untwinked characters.

    There are some discrepancies between this and the attack speed calculator, mainly regarding the Druid and his wereform(s):

    1HT One-handed thrusting attack speed with Dirk [0] and Pilum [0]
    1HS One-handed swinging attack speed with Short Sword [0]
    Barbarian is 15 (one weapon) and 13 (two weapons)
    Druid is 18, not 20

    2HS Two-handed swords attack speed with Giant Sword [0]
    Druid is 20, not 21
    Wereforms are 22, not 25

    STF Staff attack speed with Voulge [0]
    Druid is 16, not 17

    STF Staff attack speed with Maul [10]
    Druid is 18, not 20
    Druid Werebear is 24, not 23
    Druid Werewolf is 23 (level 1)

    2HT Two-handed thrusting attack speed with Spetum [0]
    Druid is 22, not 23

    XBOW Crossbow attack speed with Crossbow [0]
    Druid Werebear is 23, not 24
    Druid Werewolf is 24 (level 1)

    Unless otherwise stated, Druid wereform base attack speeds apply for both Werebear and level 1 Werewolf, but level > 1 Werewolf increases attack speed further.

    Table attack speeds for Act 2 Guards and Act 5 Barbarians are the average of two attacks (Jab and Standard respectively), and those for all mercenaries include their AI delay (+1 frame).

    Javelins and spears do not have the same melee attack speed for your characters: javelins have the same base attack speed as daggers since both are one-handed thrusting (1HT) weapons (12 frames for an Amazon), whereas spears are two-handed thrusting (2HT) weapons (15 frames for an Amazon).

    Staff (STF) weapons include any two-handed axe, hammer, polearm or staff. So a Maul has the same attack speed and breakpoints as any other [10] two-handed axe, polearm or staff.
