Skill Functions and Interactions

You can't hit the same monster more than once with the same skill use.

When Dual Wielding, hits are dealt with either the main or off hand weapon, chosen at random.

Attack speed increases the speed of the entire animation (and your movement), including the 'recovery' part at the end.
