    100% haste.

    I'm not talking 100 haste rateing I'm talking 100% haste.
    Now I think it's possible on a few classes to reach this point with lust hunter speed boost mages icy veins dks chill speed boost or what not.

    My question is what will happen if you reach it? On a hunter will he just start SMGing things? Will the Mage run around instant casting frost bolt instead of ice lance? Will the dk just go hog wild and swing his big two hand rune weapon like it didn't so fast it becomes invisible and the boss just dies?

    Idk I just leveled a toon and he had 75% haste when things were stacked right but I'm in quest greens so no gear with major haste stats. What do you guys think?

    Major DPS is lost as having too much haste is a waste.

    Ive reached 154% haste on my hunter according to my char sheet with RF / Lust / Pot / Elixir, can't say I noticed anything dramatic other than sexy fast Aimed Shots, makes my burst go right up but that happens regardless of lust / pot / elixir when am using RF on single target fights >80%.

    When I pop a few CD's on my shammy I easily hit 110% or more Though it's usually during bossfights, and I can't be bothered to do any math on my casttimes, given it only lasts for 10s or so At least I can tell you it's not hardcapped at 100%

    Wouldn't 100% haste mean you've cut the cast time of your spell / the attack timer on your melee swing in half? As in 100% haste gives a 50% actual reduction and NOT instant casts.

    E.g. a 10 sec cast time spell such as Resurrection will have a 5 sec cast time at 100% haste.

    I don't think you guys understand how haste works in WoW. 100% haste means you cast two spells in the amount of time it would take to cast one spell with 0% haste. Not that your spell will be instant cast.

    Many said it already but I just wanted to be in the cool gang. There would be no point of reaching 100% haste..

    The GCD will always be one second. Although, the cast times under 1 sec would be instant. Casts over 1 sec would not be instant.

    edit: I think....

    I believe 100% haste reduces cast time by half.

    The calculation for haste is [Caste Time] / ((1 + [Haste1]/100) + (1 + [Haste2]/100) + ... + (1 + [Haste % from rating]/100))
    So assuming you can achieve 100% haste this would be [Cast Time] / 2

    You're right, I just made a contradictional statement, for 'fun'. I realise that it can and will be read differently.

    You should read the rest of my post, and stop acting like an ass, and then looking like a retard.

    Hard cap is when your slowest casted spell is 1 sec.

    GCD will always be one second...unless you're an Unholy DK.

    Beyond that, 100% haste is a 100% speed increase. A 2 second spell would take 1 second. A 5 second spell would take 2.5 seconds. A 1 second spell would take half a second.

    Haste doesn't work the way you're thinking. Haste is a factor for division. Theoretically it's possible to be dividing by such a large number that yes, you would reduce all spell casting time to near-instant. You could however, never have enough haste to actually make a spell instant. That's a game programming thing. You could make a spell APPEAR instant simply due to the human mind not being able to react as fast as your spell goes, but it's unlikely you can do it with the current amount of haste on gear.

    So would 200% haste be instant or 1/4 time? If the hunter said he reached 154% then 200% might be possible but a waste if it dosn't grant instant casts or mad weapon swings. And do weapon swings and ranged auto shots have the same 1sec gcd?
