Sorceress Zeal Speed with 1-Handed Swing Weapons 
#contents
-Fanatic Swing is a modification of Zeal. Zeal has a parameter of ''100% Rollback'', while Fanatic Swing is given ''50% Rollback''. This article is based on an assumption that 50% Rollback makes %%%the next swing start 50% faster%%%. (Any correction would be appreciated.)
 

**Sorceress Zeal Speed [#tb5b8bf7]
-This table is the Sorceress Zeal speed quoted from [[The Amazon Basin Technical Discussion Forum:http://www.theamazonbasin.com/d2/forums/index.php?showtopic=42841&st=15]].
-EIAS is effective IAS the character has.
-1st Swing is the frame of the first swing.
-End Swing is the frame of the last swing.
-F-U (follow-up) Swing is the frame of each swing between the first and the last.
-The End Swing is especially longer because it contains the animation to the neutral position (the ending animation).
-For example, if a Sorceress has no IAS and swings 5 times with oskill Zeal, the whole attack sequence takes 10+12+12+12+19=65 frames.

**Sorceress Fanatic Swing Speed [#v227656a]

-Assuming 50% Rollback makes %%%the next swing start 50% faster%%%, Fanatic Swing will have 50% less 1st Swing and F-U Swing. End Swing won't be affected because there comes no next swing until the whole sequence ends.
-So the table of Fanatic Swing speed will be like this. (Each 1st Swing and F-U Swing is halved and rounded up.)

-With 50% EIAS, the sequence takes 4+4+4+4+12=28 frames (So-called 4 frame Zeal), not bad breakpoint to aim. With 54% EIAS the sequence gets 1 frame shorter. With 67% EIAS, the sequence gets 2 more frames shorter.

**Calculating the EIAS [#e557dec2]
-Since no weapon speed calculator in the world supports Fanatic Swing, we have to calculate the EIAS for ourselves.
-Well, now we know we need 67% EIAS for the fastest breakpoint. Then how much IAS do we need?
-First, let's check the weapon speed (WSM) at the [[ES Database:http://homepage3.nifty.com/miyoshino/es/es3weap_n.htm]]. For example, if you use a Long Sword, the WSM is [-10]. WSM is EIAS, but a negative value. So WSM [-10] is equal to 10% EIAS. You can subtract 10% from 67%. The rest EIAS we need is 57%.
-Next, if you have Fanaticism and/or Annihilation (from eqipment or mercenary), let's check it's IAS bonus. The IAS bonus from skills is EIAS, too. If your aura grants 15% skill IAS, you can subtract 15% from 57%. The rest EIAS we need is 42%.
-Ok, it's time to look up the table. It says 42% EIAS is equal to 65% IAS, so you need 65% IAS from equipments.

**Comparison of Fanatic Swing with Zeal [#zb773e64]
-Sorceress' Zeal speed with 0% IAS is 10/12/19 (1st/F-U/End). Zeal usually swings 5 times, which takes: 
 10 + 12 + 12 + 12 + 19 = 65 frames (avg. 13 fpa) 

-Sorceress' Fanatic Swing speed with 0% IAS is 5/6/19 (1st/F-U/End).
 5 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 19 = 42 frames (avg. 8.4 fpa) 

-Paladin's Zeal speed with 0% IAS is 7/7/14 (1st/F-U/End). 
 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 + 14 = 42 frames (avg. 8.4 fpa) 

-Sorceress' Fanatic Swing is approximately as fast as Paladin's Zeal. It can reach the fastest breakpoint with less IAS than Zeal, but it tends to be a bit slower than Zeal, especially when the attack ends before it swings 5 times (ie. all nearby enemies may die before you swing 5 times), because of the longer End frame.
