While '''Rapid Fire''' is active, it will reduce the [[cast roundtime]] of all subsequent spells to 1 second.

If the spell is recast during the recovery period, all subsequent spells cast cost and additional 5 mana.  Training in [[#Mana Control Benefit|Elemental Mana Control]] will reduce the recovery period.  Rapid Fire is '''not''' restricted to self-cast; it can be cast on other characters.  This spell cannot be [[imbed]]ded or found normally on [[scroll]]s.

While Rapid Fire is active, it will reduce the cast roundtime of all subsequent spells to 1 second. Once the effect ends, there is a short recovery period (i.e. cooldown) of 90 seconds before the spell can be used again without an extra penalty. If the spell is recast during the recovery period, all subsequent spells cast cost an additional 5 mana. Training in Elemental Mana Control will reduce the recovery period. Rapid Fire is not restricted to self-cast; it can be cast on other characters. This spell cannot be imbedded or found normally on scrolls.

Rapid Fire does not affect the cast roundtime from magic items or spellsongs. The spell will not automatically prepare the same spell again.

Mana Control Benefit

Training in Elemental Mana Control (EMC) reduces the recovery period.

Recovery Period = 90 - trunc[(EMC ranks) / 2.2] seconds

At 100 ranks, the duration is 45 seconds, and at 200 ranks, there is no cooldown. When cast on other characters, Rapid Fire uses the target's EMC skill to determine the recovery period. However, the EMC skill is subject to an outside penalty if the target is unable to learn the spell, similar to when activating a spell from a magical item or scroll as described at Mana Controls

Elemental Mana Control ranks 0 25 50 75 100 125 150 175 200
Recovery period (seconds) 90 79 68 56 45 34 22 11 0
Not all thresholds are shown.

Lore Benefits

Elemental Lore, Air

Training in Air Lore provides a chance, based on a seed 1 summation of ranks, to cause an attack spell to be resolved using CHANNEL formulas (instead of a normal CAST) to determine damage or critical location. For a warding spell, the caster will be treated as if they were in offensive stance for the purposes of determining the bonus from channeling. (This effect is automatic and does not require the caster to manually CHANNEL, it simply converts a CAST to a CHANNEL.)

Elemental Lore, Air ranks 1 3 6 10 15 21 28 36 45 55 66
Chance for channel bonus 1% 2% 3% 4% 5% 6% 7% 8% 9% 10% 11%
Elemental Lore, Air ranks 78 91 105 120 136 153 171 190 210 231
Chance for channel bonus 12% 13% 14% 15% 16% 17% 18% 19% 20% 21%


Elemental Lore, Water

Training in Water Lore provides a chance to negate the cooldown when the effect ends based on a seed 1 summation of ranks.

Elemental Lore, Water ranks 1 3 6 10 15 21 28 36 45 55 66
Chance to negate cooldown 1% 2% 3% 4% 5% 6% 7% 8% 9% 10% 11%
Elemental Lore, Water ranks 78 91 105 120 136 153 171 190 210 231
Chance to negate cooldown 12% 13% 14% 15% 16% 17% 18% 19% 20% 21%
