Faster Casting (sometimes abbreviated FC) is an item property that reduces the amount time it takes to cast a spell. For every point in faster casting you have, the casting time is shortened by 0.25 or 1/4 of a second.
The total Faster Casting your equipment provides is subject to the following maximums.
- 2 - For Magery, Mysticism and Necromancy spells
- 4 - For Bushido, Chivalry*, Ninjitsu, Spellweaving spells and Bard Masteries
- Chivalry is capped at 2 if you have 70 or more Magery or Mysticism skill.
Faster Casting is normally a maximum of 1 and is only found on spellbooks, weapons, shields, rings, and bracelets.
This list includes artifacts with more than 1 faster casting and or equipment that normally wouldn't have it:
- Arcane Shield (shield with both FC1 and SC)
