When you enhance it you will get the SC but also -1 FC. You need to imbue FC1 then enhance to get SC with no negative.

iam wondering at all as i read that protection make -2 FC,
so theoretically i dont need to put any on the jewls for this pvm necro then at all or do i need at least 1 to negate the -1 from shield?

iam not so firm in mage stuff do you have more detail here?

With protection or anything you can only end up at fc zero... Meaning you can't go lower then no fast cast.

so i can carry the FC-1 shield and its no issue even if the armor got NO FC at all,

i found an old stratics atable where it shows also -1 and -2 fc with more seconds for casting a spell

thx

I think you two are looking at the same picture from opposite sides, and confusing yourselves over whose left is right...

@Tuan please help us :)

i got a PVM char planned, it will have 6FCR but FC 0 (due to protection which will remove my FC anyhow)
the shield i plan to user obviousely got -1FC as there is no room for imbuing +FC1

in the end (with shild and protection), do i now have 0 or -1FC ?
if i got -1FC caused by the shield i need to put on +1 FC on a jewl right?

thx

You FOR SURE can have - FC (which makes your spells take longer than naked). Go get screamed at by the bard masters in blackthorns, which give like FC -5 as a penalty ... and then watch it take you 5 seconds to cast close wounds. This happens to me all the time. I wear 0 FC, get howled at, and then it takes a VERY noticeable longer time to cast my Chiv spells. It isn't that FC can only go negative for mage spells, for instance.

If your suit has 0 FC, then you put on a shield with FC -1, I believe that your character will take longer to cast spells than without the shield. Since it is only .25s it would be quite difficult to keep track of this with a stopwatch, but I bet that you could programmatically prove this fairly easily.

The only way my statement would not be true were if there was a difference between the FC floor for items vs affects.

Perhaps it would be noticeable if you put on a FC-1 shield and an FC -1 weapon, which would make your castings a fill .5s slower.
