So I've been toying with the idea of an all-Chanter / Chanter-multi party that stacks passive chants and active buffs, especially to increase ranged weapon speed.
Just to be clear here, identical chanter chant buffs don't stack. Only one "sure handed ila" chant will be active, so you can't get super fast ranged weapon speed beyond the first chant.
My dreams are crushed - not your fault
Are there any other AOE speed buffs? Aside from the Chanter/Fury barb with the AOE speed totem.
I could go Chanter/Wiz or Chanter/Monk for the self speed buffs (Alacrity of Motion, Swift Strikes) I suppose.
Feed everyone Mohorā Wraps and a drug like Coral Snuff.
Given identical chanter buffs don't stack, it still might be good to mix in 1 of each type from 5 chanter simultaneously?
with high linger, you could have two per chanter, for ten overlapping buffs (with partial uptime).
stacking rules aren't just about identical buffs - you only get the highest active buff of a category at a time, whereas any number of passive buffs stack.
so "sure handed ila" will reduce your recovery/reload time... which means it won't stack with other active buffs of any kind that reduce your recovery or reload time (that's the "category"), such as pistol rapid shot modal (the -50% reload time will just suppress the smaller -20% sure-handed ila bonus). but sure-handed ila will stack with other active buffs that increase your action speed (which is different "category", even if related, to a reload/recovery time reduction), so you can combine e.g. sure-handed ila and deleterious alacrity of motion.
the aoe speed totem from the barbarian subclass, despite being an "active skill" emanates its aura as a passive bonus, so it'll stack with anything. (whereas most auras are active bonuses, not passive bonuses, e.g. paladin auras, so they can ge suppressed by higher bonuses).
