so at the moment, im forced to play using WIFI from the next room, i get full bars 100% of the time, however i was told the WIFI router is a G. (G is up to 50+ MGB vs N which is 150+)
well im going to be playing on the 22nd and i dont know if the reason why it takes me on average 10+ seconds to cast stone skin is due to server lag or my WIFI.
im just not sure if the delay of some abilities vs non for others is server lag or the WIFI.

so my question is: anyone else try playing using WIFI G and get the same problem? Looking to avoid upgrading to an N WIFI router.

I'm currently using G from my office to the router in my living room directly below it. I haven't noticed any big issues casting and I was mainly conjurer. Also, keep in mind when casting if you are in passive and choose stoneskin it adds that extra second or so to pull out your weapon then starts casting. Also, weakness(from death) extends spell casting time if I remember correctly. But other then those 2 things it seems fine.

thanks for the reply, yeah im aware of going from passive and active and weakened state and stuff.
what happens is this.

ill cast SS, he readies it, then you expect to see the spell go off but does nothing for a good 10+ seconds, i can walk around for the entire 10+ seconds while my hand is still glowing with no spell interruption, then the spell will finally go off while i could have been casting other spells.

other spells dont really seem to have that problem, there is somewhat of a delay but only a second at the most, SS just seems to be giving me a massive problem so being a PC noob (kinda) im just not sure if im prepared for release.

Are you on main conjurer or using it as an ability while using a different DoW/DoM class? I do remember it taking extra long while I was on Thaumaturge.

If you are using it as Conjurer then I'm baffled. Try doing a comparison timing stoneskin from when you hit the button and then another spell with the same cast time(I cant think of one off hand.) If SS is still longer then it might be some type of bug.

It's definitely not your network. SS just has a longer cast time than most spells. Same thing happens for me.

6 seconds for SS vs 2 sec for a nuke like fire. If you were to actually time it accurately I'm sure it wouldn't really be 10 seconds, but I do agree it seems to take forever compared to other spells.

Though, I could be wrong and it might be a bug as I've not actually timed it with a watch, for example, but I'm leaning toward it just 'seeming' to take longer than it really does.
