Cast Speed modifiers can alter the speed of casting animation, which in effect can increase or decrease the time it takes for an ability to activate. It does not modify channeling time.

Formula[edit | edit source]

Cast Speed uses the same formula as Attack Speed.

Actual Cast Time = (Cast Action Time) / (1 + (Cast Speed / 100))

Because HoN's servers run at 20 FPS, any changes to speed is rounded up to the nearest 0.05 seconds. For example, Having a cast time of 0.66 seconds functions the same as having a cast time of 0.7 seconds.
