    Default Traumatic Swipe

    Ok call me a noob but I'm having a hard time understanding why swashies get this ability. Maybe I'm misunderstanding reuse and recast time, but why would I want to give a mob faster recast time in exchange for slower reuse time?

    Your signature contains too many lines and must be shortened. You may only have up to 8 line(s). Long text may have been implicitly wrapped, causing it to be counted as multiple lines.

    It lowers both there Recast and Reuse timers...

    Recast Timer is the time that all your buttons are greyed out before you can push another one. IE: Bedazzling Steel has a .4 second cast time with a .4 second recast and 10 Second Reuse time..

    Im starting a swashy hes only 18 atm but trying to do some research before I put AA into something that everyone says do but It's not making sense as to why I would want to give a benifit to a mob such as this w/o an equal or greater penalty which this ability does not seem to do.

    No, you are understanding it wrong.

    Lets take Bedazzling Steel as an example. Reuse time of it is 10 seconds.
    Traumatic Swipe will increase Bedazzling Steel's reuse time to 15 seconds (50%).

    So, no, it is not a benefit for the mob, it is a benefit for YOU.

    But, there is no reason to spec for this CA if you don't raid, IMO.

    Until you try to make up for a lack of skill with twice as much effort, you'll never know how much you can't do~!

    Pretty much, though I found it funny when it first came out that some people said it was worthless, until they saw how awesome it really was ^.^
