My recast timers are way longer then they should be. At first, a 2 second recast spell was over 1 minute and my PC clock was messed up some reason. i corrected the time, made sure date was accurate and my time zone blah blah. restarted my PC just in case.

Recast times are still messed up, and they seem to be jumping from a 2 second recast having a 3 second - 2 minute recast time.

Internal clock is the only thing i'm aware of that can mess up recast timer like this, any advice before i try an uninstall?

Edit: i'm syncing with time.windows.com just like it always has been, i dont know what changed to cause this.

Do you have Weakness? Are the abilities you are casting cross-class?

afaik internal clock shouldn't be able to affect anything like that. Might be your connection dropping frequently, then reconnecting?

This is incredible new to me, I have never heard of such a thing.
I'd have to agree with the lag idea, i honestly dont see anything else causing this make sure your not torrenting or someone in your house if they are set their torrents upload cap to 25kbps..

No matter how fast your DL speed is if you use all the UL speed it bottlenecks and all other PC's on the network cant access or have very slow access to the internet.

I learned this in college rented a house with several fellow students and we had to institute this cause one person would leave torrents running and even after they downloaded the upload would kill everyones internet access til he came home and turned it off.

We were very close to just breaking down his door cause he would always uncap his upload to unlimited when we were sleeping then leave for work/school and lock his door.

Are you able to screencap with Fraps or a similar tool? Would be good to witness the behavior in order to help debug it.

Hmm... i dunno what finally fixed it, but my recast timers are working right again. I almost did a system restore but decided not to at the last second and now it seems to all be in sync.

I do however know if your internal clock is off it will effect game recast timers. I learned that when i use to play Everquest. there was a clicky with a 3 min reuse timer on it and somehow my clock got messed up by 3 days and it wouldnt let me reuse the item for something ridiculous like 2900 minutes.

Spoke too soon, its not gone, it does seem to be lag effecting my recast time. If thats the case then the game is ruined for me anyway cause the connection being on an air force base in SKorea... i dont have much of a choice. The koreans block and slow down many sites so maybe its just messing with my connection.

Its nice to see the game has at least got some good patches in since i took a break a little over a month ago. but i cant play a game where lag is effecting recast times cause its just gunna ***** me over in the end, especially as a conjurer.
