I have played this game years ago when it was hosted by netgame. On my lvl 132 mage i had a casting speed ring which you could notice because the cast animation would speed up a lot. Now i have one on my mage here but i notice totally no difference at all if i have the ring equipped or not. Does anyone else have this problem as well? As well the mage casting speed skill is useless as it does not work. This was also a problem years ago. So don't put any points in it (or only 1 if you want the next skills).
