Don't do it.
Normally, in highly congested areas (like, around the aetherites) both you and the mobs will lag so bad it's a "fair" game of whoever lags less wins. But once you try casting a spell you'll realize that that cure you wanted to save your *** with suddenly takes 15 seconds to cast. Plan ahead.

I agree. I try to move as far away as possible when I'm doing stuff and find a secluded spot to fight or do whatever I'm working on.

That being said - are we supposed to be able to start a cast like Stoneskin then run around - stopping to cast when it completes? Is that intentional or a side-effect or lagging?

One more thing about lag and casting - Does the cast bar work accurately for anyone? Even in minimal-lag areas it always is off - or it's already full even before I start casting..
