The values displayed below indicate the delay, in seconds, between strikes (swings of your weapon). The lower the number, the faster the rate of attack. If your stamina drops during battle, so will your attack speed. Values are rounded to the nearest tenth of second.

Speed of Attack (Second-Delay Between Strikes)

FORMULA: Attack Speed= 15,000 ÷ ( [Stamina +100] x Weapon Speed )
