Maximum possible? Edit

What's the highest amount of +attack speed possible with this rune? The most i found was 37% on many act 3 with weapons like Bloom or The Celebrant.

It seems to me, that 50% or 60% is the max +attack speed you can get, is this true? I tested it with 2 of these runes on Bloom and a mage casting haste, but the attack animation did not increase further for my character. Zarathustra01 (talk) 09:22, March 30, 2011 (UTC)

The maximum possible bonus for the rune would probably be on a five star weapon at level 50 (someone could always try it on Bianca / Fadeshear Sword at level 50?). But with the current non-leveling-up items I believe 37% is the maximum I've seen for this rune. As for the attack speed cap, I had Authorized Biographer, Embellishment, Well-oiled, Speed, Lightning Speed on Varric which adds up to +60% attack speed and I really couldn't tell a difference when Haste was activated.

Can you somewhere ingame see your current attack speed? Zarathustra01 (talk) 09:26, April 4, 2011 (UTC)

Increasing attack speed raises probability of critical hits Edit

" Individually, these bonuses tend to be small and often negligible. But if your character has abilities that enhance attack speed or companions who provide a speed buff, the cumulative effect can be worth pursuing. Increasing attack speed raises the probability of critical hits." -souce: Dragon Age 2 Official game guide pg. 192 So can we assume that it is safe to say that it increases the chance of critical hits in the note section?

"Critical chance" usually refers to the chance that an individual hit would be critical. I'm ok with the current (reworded) version of the note. – mostlyautumntalkcontribs • 11:01, June 18, 2014 (UTC)
I don't agree with that version of the note. For me it doesn't make any sense or is redundant. As much as I understand it says, that this rune increases the CritChance, which is good for rogues who have anyway a high CritChance, because it heightens it!?!? I put it here for now until someone can explain to me, that it's good to be left on the page or rephrases it. Oh, hi again, Alex …
  • The increase attack speed increases the chances of critical hits. Very useful for rogues with high dexterity which have a high critical hit rate; thus increasing frequency of critical hits."
