# Capping -DelayFollow

Talking about dual wield and haste always makes my head hurt a little. I have an Iga zukin+2, but I still haven't adjusted my "macros" to account for varying levels of haste buffs. Before I do I was hoping someone could check my math.

To my understanding, to cap delay reduction, the sum of all haste and dual wield must be 80. Is that correct, or is the truth more complicated? Also, is 26% haste in gear actually 25% haste?

My current TP setup is:

```Iga Zukin+2    lolPeacock     Suppa         Brutal
Nin Chainmail  Koga/dusk      Rajas         garbage
Aethling       Twilight       Iga+1         Iga+1/Ballerines```

25% actual haste and 50 total DW, putting my 5 points below delay reduction cap.

When under the effect of Victory March, but not haste:

```Iga Zukin+2    lolPeacock     Suppa         Brutal
Loki/iga       Koga/dusk      Rajas         garbage
Aethling       Twilight       Iga+1         Iga+1/Ballerines```

For 36% haste and 45 DW, capping delay-.

When under the haste spell, I could switch to:

```Iga Zukin+2    lolPeacock     Fenrir/aesir  Brutal
Loki/iga       Koga/dusk      Rajas         garbage
Aethling       Twilight       Iga+1         Iga+1/Ballerines```

For 40% haste and 40 DW, capping delay-.

And since I have no head options which are better for TP than Iga Zukin +2, no amount of spell haste above 15% is worth adjusting for. Did I make any mistakes?

You have made a mistake in how you combined haste and dual wield. Delay reduction is calculated by multiplying dual wield and haste, not by adding them.

You can use this equation (1-(1-dual wield%)*(1-haste%)) to give your total delay reduction.

For example in the first case you gave with 25% haste and 50% dual wield you would have:

(1-(1-0.50)*(1-0.25))=0.625 or 62.5%

This leaves you still a ways from the cap. Just as a FYI though you need 60% haste to cap delay reduction when you have 50% dual wield.
