Attack Speed

Does attack speed increase the attack rate of our dot spells, like, Manitou?

No it doesn't. None of them. The cast animations to throw the spell are faster but the DoTs are at a fixed rate.

With Manitou the cast is fast anyway, so it is probably worthless for that spell.

if u be an Dart Doc, Attack Speed would push ur Damage, on a Bear Spamming Doc u will go OOM very fast.
i thing Attack Speed is only good for non mana skills.
But a little bit is good in some situations.

Nubtro, in the BatBarrage thread ( http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/8568377461?page=1 ) has completely smashed how I view the interaction between AS and DoTs. Still trying to wrap my head around it, but it highlights the fact that our DoTs may need a more critical eye looking over how they work. Stay tuned, I'm gonna try and convince the man to run through them all and give us the rundown.

In the meantime, skywalker has expressed it best. AS will get things happening faster, but the damage per tick is unaffected.

so would it be safe to say that i should get rid of my AS stuff and focus more on Crit chance/damage? Will this lessen my mana consumption?

.


Though there are no "non-mana" skills. EVERYTHING consumes mana, or requres a skill before it that used mana to be activated.
