Diablo® III

What is the fastest wizard APS possible

If the weapon has both +min/max damage and a socket, what is the fastest possible attack speed for a wizard to attain? Basically, how much IAS gear is there for a wizard, and what weapon is the fastest out-of-the-box to utilize it?

This is assuming the wizard doesn't care about crit chance or crit damage, just speed.

A wiz with AS on everything except shoulders and boots gets you to 90AS...so, with a 1.79 wand:

1.9*1.79=3.40.

Thats above the 3.33 Breakpoint.

With stretch time:

(1.9 + 0.1)*1.79=3.58...but the next highest BT is 3.75.

Then there's some legacy boots that can add, like, 5%.

With those legacy 6% Zuni boots, (1.9+0.06+0.1)(1.79)=3.69

I'm pretty sure a white weapon with higher attack speed could go higher...but isn't usable.

Don't ever exceed the 3,5 breakpoint you will incur input command lag. (doesn't Ashrea's boots add 7% ias? and don't forget to include the 0.03 aps increase from your follower

I couldn't imagine anyone but maybe aimless being able to run the 3.5 breakpoint without incurring input command lag.

1.80 APS white Balanced dagger

9 IAS Chant Force
9 IAS Mempo/Andariel
9 IAS Tal chest
9 IAS ring
9 IAS ring
9 IAS amulet
9 IAS glove
9 IAS Lacuni
9 IAS Witching Hour
9 IAS Inna's Temp
7 IAS Asheara's Tracks

97% IAS

10 IAS Slow Time - Stretch Time
20 IAS Big Bad Voodoo
8 IAS Mantra of Retribution - Transcendence

38% IAS

1.8 * 2.35 = 4.23 APS

I think that might be the max APS barring playability.

actually the highest has to be 3 big bad voodoo on 3 different runes, each gives 20% ias bonus.

the highest single wizard attack speed from gear alone is 3.55aps - 3.77 with enchantress and time bubble.

white 1.80 dagger is needed with 9ias everywhere else and 7ias on boots.
