Yay, Haste Formula! I was wondering if it was ari to thank some mage's hat for the formula here, since I'm not supposed to include credits in the actual article. *shrug?* Doom Duck 15:30, 19 January 2006 (PST)

You can thank whoever you want in the talk space, that's for sure. You could mention that he came up with the formula in the article as well, if you wanted. The idea is that facts should be in there, but not opinions. He being the one that developed the formula would be a fact, him being a great guy because of it would be an opinion. So something like "The roundtime reduction appears to follow the following formula, due to Joe Bob Johnson" would be just fine. - Ildran 18:36, 19 January 2006 (PST)

I don't know how to make 'breaks' between stuff. A BIG note to add, that I just found out, is that the formula is used on whoever is benefitting from haste (so a non-wizard will not get ANY bonus and it's a straight ((RT - 1) * .75). I'll add this, but if someone could make it cleaner? :) Arianiss Winterfox 15:17, 16 April 2009 (EDT)

Actually, if you think about it more, it makes sense that it works that way (IE: an imbed). So maybe the clarification isn't needed. Arianiss Winterfox 15:29, 16 April 2009 (EDT)
Went ahead and made the changes necessary. And actually it isn't a straight ((RT - 1) * .75), since non-Wizards could still qualify for the Air Lore bonus. GREYCROISSANT 11:40, 17 April 2009 (EDT)
Yeah, I made an error in my testing and assumed on something I couldn't test (the wizard I was using doesn't have Air Lore). Thanks for the catch :) Arianiss Winterfox 18:12, 22 May 2009 (EDT)
Here are the raw numbers from a test Tillmen did from rank 0 air lore to 202 - [0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 6, 7, 7, 7, 8, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, 9, 10, 10, 10, 11, 11, 11, 12, 12, 12, 12, 13, 13, 13, 14, 14, 14, 15, 15, 15, 15, 16, 16, 16, 17, 17, 17, 18, 18, 18, 18, 19, 19, 19, 20, 20, 20, 21, 21, 21, 21, 22, 22, 22, 23, 23, 23, 24, 24, 24, 24, 25, 25, 25, 26, 26, 26, 27, 27, 27, 27, 28, 28, 28, 29, 29, 29, 30, 30, 30, 30, 31, 31, 31, 32, 32, 32, 33, 33, 33, 33, 34, 34, 34, 35, 35, 35, 36, 36, 36, 36, 37, 37, 37, 38, 38, 38, 39, 39, 39, 39, 40, 40, 40, 41, 41, 41, 42, 42, 42, 42, 43, 43, 43, 44, 44, 44, 45, 45, 45, 45, 46, 46, 46, 47, 47, 47, 48, 48, 48, 48, 49, 49, 49, 50, 50, 50, 51, 51, 51, 51, 52, 52, 52, 53, 53, 53, 54, 54, 54, 54, 55, 55, 55, 56, 56, 56, 57, 57, 57, 57, 58, 58, 58, 59, 59, 59, 60, 60, 60] Drafix Myalon 15:45, 11 June 2015 (PST)
