I found this thread posted on May 22 on Diablo fans that says that the Increased % Attack Speed modifier on gear does not have an effect, while the Attack Speed Increase % does work correctly.
i.e. Increased Attack Speed by 9% does NOT work
while Attack Speed Increased by 9% does work
Note that I have not tested this myself or encountered this bug as of yet but here is the thread for reference:
90 Blood Elf Paladin
I think the "Increases attack speed by X%" is meant to be on weapons only. This directly increases the weapon speed and you see it displayed. For instance, a 2 hand weapon has .9 attacks per second normally but with increased attacked speed it is 1.01 or whatever the % is.
The "Attack Speed increased by X%" is what should be on armor since it increases your general attack speed. But it is definitely a bug to look out for and not get a bad piece of armor.
