really? So i rather wanna lower my damage by removing attack speed and using more intelligence so my spells become stronger (dont care if its fast or slow cast) but for example for kiting if i run run run and cast 1 spell and repeat.. I remove my increased attack speed and use intelligence, i will do more damage EVEN though my 'damage' goes down. Is that correct?
No, that is not correct, by attacking faster you do more damage over the same period of time, stop caring only about shiny numbers showing up above monsters... also if you have 0 IAS, you will stop for like a whole half second to place a blizzard or shoot a spell, how can you play like that... you can't kite at all, it's terrible.
well im over 80% increased attack speed since i have stacked it alot, but if i remove like 30% of it and replace it with intelligence, it states that i lose alot of DAMAGE, and that is why i was wondering if each spell actually does less dmg or not. :/
DPS ("damage" on the character sheet) = (1 + faster_attack_speed) * weapon_speed * average_damage_per_hit * (1 + crit_chance * bonus_damage_percentage_on_crit)
So increasing your attack speed increases your damage by making you hit more often. It's never a bad thing, though for some builds you're better off with your primary attribute such as if you are often running out of arcane power.
