has less action speed.

Action speed is a stat that determines how fast or slow a character performs actions, such as running, swinging a weapon, casting a spell, or recoiling from being stunned.

The total modifier to the player character's action speed can be viewed on the Character screen under the Defence tab.

Mechanics

A character's action speed determines the relative rate at which its animations play, thereby affecting the overall speed that their actions are performed.[1][2] All of the character's actions that have an animated component are affected by their action speed.[3] This includes moving, attacking and casting (including channelling), throwing traps and mines, shouting warcries, summoning totems, and recovering from stuns.

Modifiers to action speed have a multiplicative effect on a character in conjunction with stats that affect the speed of specific actions, such as movement speed, attack speed, cast speed and stun recovery.[1] Action speed does not directly modify such stats.[3] This distinction is relevant for game mechanics that care about any discrete modifiers to those stats. For example, the brand activation frequency of Arcanist BrandArcanist BrandTrigger, Spell, Duration, Brand

is affected by modifiers to the character's cast speed; whereas it is not affected by modifiers to the character's action speed.[2]

Some monsters have a minimum action speed %. This prevents them from ever reaching zero action speed.

Action cap

Because the game engine limits players to starting 1 action per server frame, or 30 actions per second, it is possible to reach a point at which speed stats are no longer useful. This is not a typical issue outside extreme cases such as Soul Eater. This only limits new actions: repeating animations do not count toward the limit, and channelling is unaffected by it entirely.[4]
