Long story short, Mudras are silky smooth for EU Ninjas.
Decided to do some investigating. Unless I’ve been “fat fingering”, animation delays for GCDs are approximately 0.634s.
The 2nd Mudra came exactly 0.5s later, literally 0 Delay
If the CD of Mudras are 0.5s, then the Ration would of came at 1.635s, instead, it came at 1.702s, a whole 0.067s later. This could of been either me “Fat fingering” or there’s an additional delay between using a Mudra and a Ninjitsu
Ration has it’s own Animation Delay as well. I weren’t able to use my next GCD for an additional 0.6s, making the total cast time for Ration 2.302s.
Given the fact I were at 2.12 GCD, this would make my animation clip, with Ration, 0.2s.
Now, I’m positive this particular example was bad and I did “fat finger”, as I noticed that I weren’t clicking my mudras or my Ninjitsu as fast as I could’ve (I’m not a pro ninja admittedly)
I then decided to use a Suiton. My first Mudra came at 0.701, which is approximately 0.046s slower. This is clearly me doing something wrong, as each time I went to use a Ration, my first mudra came at 0.635s
My second Mudra fired off at exactly 0.5s later, as predicted
My 3rd Mudra went off at 0.51, but that additional 0.1s can be put down to latency, or the fact this is all recorded at 30fps, slightly messing around with the frames recorded.
Just like Ration, there was a delay between the last Mudra and the Ninjitsu firing off. My Ninjitsu went off at 2.236, an additional 0.534s later
And I weren’t able to use my first GCD for an additional 0.601s, making the total cast for a 4-step mudra like Suiton 2.836
So, what we can say is this:
- The GCD animation lock is approximately 0.635s
- Mudra Cast Times are at exactly 0.5s
- Your Ration + Suiton Ninjitsu has an Animation Delay of 0.6s
In other words, eliminating any possibility of me just being shit
Fuma Total Cast: 0.635 + 0.5 + 0.6 = 1.735
Ration Total Cast: 0.635 + 0.5 + 0.5 + 0.6 = 2.235
Suiton Total Cast: 0.635 + 0.5 + 0.5 + 0.5 + 0.6 = 2.735
I’d like some proper ninjas to get some really good recordings if possible of them button mashing their button pressed so I can eliminate myself just “being bad at Ninjas”.
If these are what the timers are for a Ninja, then I don’t see any shift at all in a Ninjas Skillspeed Weight. If I’m bad and other Ninjas can somehow fire off their first mudra before 0.635s, or have a Ninjitsu delay of 0.5s, then I’m just extremely bad, even with 16ms, and yes, there will be a slight shift in Mudras.
You’re still clipping your GCD whether you like it or not, sadly. Just, it’s not that noticeable anymore.
