Also known as: Attack Speed
Attack speed is an offensive attribute and affects the speed at which a character attacks with their equipped weapon. Characters with higher attack speed will attack more often, and thus increase the damage per second their character inflicts.
All classes that attack with their weapons want to maximize their Attack Speed attribute. However, the ways in which players can increase their Attack Speed are limited.
A high Attack Speed attribute is important for all classes that inflict damage with their weapons, but there are just two pieces of equipment in Aion that will increase a character’s Attack Speed; weapons and hand slot armor. In addition to equipment, players can increase their Attack Speed with buffs, scrolls, titles, and other special means.
