Notes Edit

  • Attack skills activation time with Dwarven Battle Stance:
    • no casting time = ~1.17 seconds (1.5*0.67=1.1725)
    • 1-second casting time = 0.67 seconds
    • 2-second casting time = 1.34 seconds (NOT 1.33 seconds)
    • 3-second casting time = 2.01 seconds (NOT 2 seconds)
  • You need at least Deldrimor rank 6 to be able to permanently maintain Dwarven Battle Stance with 14 Strength, but at Deldrimor rank 4 (common rank after finishing EotN), you only have 5% downtime
  • At maximum Deldrimor rank 10:
    • Dwarven Stability and Dwarven Battle Stance are maintainable with 12+ Strength
    • 12+1+1 Hammer Mastery and 12+1 Strength are ideal
