  • fast casting???

    i was in a bg and fought a mage and somehow he was able to cast light bolt and resto in 1 round? at 1st i thought maybe i didnt see it right,so i sought out said mage and fought him again and yes he indeed was casting light bolt and resto and also light bolt and sunto in 1 round..when i asked about this in chat i was told by said mage it was because i was lagging,to which i replied im not lagging and its only you doing it..then someone else replied that he was fast casting? to which the fast casting mage said its just because he is so skillful??? ive tried searching about this "fast casting" but couldnt find anything apart from dbl hitting wb etc,so is this a legit tactic,was themage just really too skillful or is he using some kind of exploit/glitch to his benfit?

    its a bug (or feature?) which stops your skillbar to get dark/black after using a skill. this way you can use the next skill as soon as the animation of your previous skill starts, just like in afk fights or like you can hit the awaken-button while your character is executing some other skill. but the only way i know to cause this bug in a pvp fight at will, is in sylphform after using the trick which lets you use a rune right after awakening. i often get it in normal form too but it seems to be random.

      If he was using gaia, it may have been the sylph attack you saw/heard. I confuse her attack with my own quite often.

          nope because the passive from gaia would be every 2nd round not every round

            heals are faster to cast so maybe you are using a slow cast skill when he do it? like HS or thunderer?

            if he do HS and thunderer in 1 round, then that's more likely cheating

              First of all, what class are you? If you're a Knight casting apollo shield or argon shield, it would explain why the mage got in two skills before you casted yours. Resto is the fastest casting skill in wartune as i know.

                    I still think its highly likely ur lagging compared to him. While to you it may seem your WT is running smoothly, but if he has a better connection, he could be queuing up skills few seconds faster than you which gives him enough time to cast 2 skills. I've seen it happen alot in CW as well.

                      lagging is my guess, when i was on a crappy pc I was dh a lot too. Its not like the screen was freezing, but the skills weren't ready fast enough.

                        U must be laggy, as or ms are fastest skills in this game...if mage can cast bolt+ resto/sunto before your as/ms...only fault is in your lags

                          Or there genuinely is something wrong here.

                          FWIW - I would suggest installing a screen video capture program... and then hope you meet him again.

                            It is possible. As if have said before in other threads, double casting is not limited to just WBs and can be used in GA. If one guy double casts and one guy normal casts, the guy who double casts will hit twice every time in a 0 lag environment. You just have to figure out what the technique is.
