Attack speed

Attack speed is determined by the interval between hits. Hit intervals are measured in game ticks (0.6 seconds). The lower the interval, the faster the attack speed.

The attack speed can not be altered by any consumables, rather it is determined by the type of weapon being used. The tables below show the attack speeds for the respective types.

The speed of all combat spells is 5 (interval: 5 ticks, 3.0 seconds), unless at long range distance, in which the speed is 4 (interval: 6 ticks, 3.6 seconds).
