Job Trait Overview

  • Game Description: Quickens spellcasting.
  • Job Traits are always active.

Effect Overview

  • 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%.Exclamation
