   Weapon speed calculations can be fairly complicated to understand for many players, and without understanding of exactly how weapon speeds are calculated, it can be very difficult for players to make informed decisions. This page is going to contain a series of tables that demonstrate weapon speed calculations for a variety of weapon speeds and static conditions. Note, for players using this on shards other than UO Singularity, the calculations might not be exactly the same. Some of the calculations we have in UO Singularity have diverged slightly from the ServUO core, however this information should still serve well as a general guideline to understanding weapon speeds on other servers. But first you need to understand the fundamentals of weapon speed calculations in UO Singularity:

   Swing Speed Cap - For general weapon speed calculations, there is a hard cap of a weapon speed of 1.25 seconds. This means that even if you have enough weapon speed to go beyond this, you will end up swinging with a 1.25 second timer regardless. The only class capable of going beyond this is the Zealot class, which can achieve speeds of up to 0.75 seconds with enough weapon speed, but only while their Zeal buff is active.

   Stam Contribution Cap - Stamina is very important for calculating weapon speed, every 30 points of stamina reduces the swing timer by 0.25 seconds. Because some abilities can cause stamina loss, this means it can be beneficial to be overcapped on your Swing Speed Increase as well. There is a 120 Stamina Contribution Cap towards swing speed, but some classes have talents that will allow them to achieve up to 150 stamina contribution. This will still not allow players to break the 1.25 second Swing Speed Cap.

   Swing Speed Increase Cap - Swing Speed Increase (often referred to as SSI) has a cap of 60, however there are some classes that can extend beyond this for up to 80 SSI, but the 1.25 Swing Speed Cap will still apply.

   Ok, so with these things in mind, we can now use the charts below to examine swing speeds under specific conditions. The first three charts will examine swing speeds with a 120 stamina contribution for all weapon speeds and increments of 10 SSI. The last three charts will do the same but for a stamina contribution of 150. Also, this chart has a single yellow highlighted line to indicate what happens for weapons at the 60 SSI cap. The cellsin these tables that are highlighted as grey, is to indicate how to achieve the Swing Speed Cap of 1.25. There are four speeds calculated in each chart, Speed1 will have its calculations displayed in the Swing1 column, Speed2 to Swing2 and so fourth.
