Hey there!

As the topic already suggests, I'm not completely certain about the effect of the Kathryne Keyron Card.
To be more precise, there is actually a phrase on the description on Iro, which kinda confuses me.

But lemme show you, what I mean:

[iRO Description]
Reduces Cast Time by a percentage equal to the compounded helmet's upgrade level. If the upgrade level is 9 or greater, then this card will increase Magic Attack Strength by 2%.
Cast Time with card= Original Cast Time -(Original Cast Time *Helmet Upgrade Level/100)

Its the formula on the last phrase.

So, if I have a +9 Headgear, which provides me a variable cast time of, lets say, 0,5 sec. with the Card, so the result due to the formula would be something like this?

0,5 = 0,5 -(0,5*9/100) = 0,045???

I know, I'm completely missing something, but what exactly?
Would be nice, if someone could me help out of here ;P

[EDIT] Ouh, and another thing, how much in comparison is the KK Card better than a Dark Illusion Card, in terms of reducing the variable cast time?

For your first question:
The 0.045 you found is actually the cast reduction provided by the card (For a 0.5 cast time, with a +9 hat), as you forgot to subtract it from the 0.5 (Original cast time) from the formula. :P
That means the final cast time is 0.455 seconds.
For your second question:
Dark Illusion card reduces variable cast time by 10% (With a downside of reducing your max HP), so you'd need a +10 hat for the Kathryne Keyron card to have the same effect on cast time (10% reduction), with the added bonus of Magic Attack + 2% and not reducing your Max HP.

Perfect answer, to a stupid question ;P

Thank you, Nocredit. That pretty much solved my issue.

With Magic Strings, you can really see the effects of KK or DI card.

given most skills have a fixed component as well, you will *not* notice a 1% difference. Most of the time that 1% will only be a fraction of your variable ping to the servers, i.e. less than margin of error.

I believe the effect only works up to +10...

I saw that somewhere but I don't recall where... but it said that the cast time reduction only works up to +10 upgrade level...

Does someone knows anything about it?
