Job Trait Overview
- Game Description: Quickens spellcasting.
- Job Traits are always active.
- Reduces both the Cast Time and the Recast Time of the spell. Fast Cast gear MUST remain equipped to gain the Recast Time effect
- Fast Cast recast reduction is calculated first. Then the reduced recast value is reduced further by haste gear. See Talk:Fast Cast for testing details.
- Gear with 'Enhances "Fast Cast" effect' affects both Cast Time and Recast Time.
- Related effect of Haste (and Slow) affects only Recast Time.
- Recast Time cannot be reduced by more than 50%.
- Fast Cast cannot reduce Recast Time by more than 25% (or 50% Fast Cast).
- Fast Cast stacks with the Cast Time and Recast Time modifying effects of Light Arts, Dark Arts and Composure.
- Keep in mind that Cast Time used here means the amount of time for the spell progress bar to reach 75%. Since the calculation is a multiplication, for someone with Fast Cast 1 the spell goes off at 75% * (1 - 0.1) = 67.5%.
Blue Magic Spells that Activate this Trait
Set two of the following Blue Magic spells to get this trait:
- Please note that while Blue Mage was originally capable of acquiring the full benefits of Fast Cast, there is presumably a bug currently within the game that causes BLU's Fast Cast to grant only half of the previous and standard Fast Cast I bonus.
