Snapshot values?Follow

A lot of gear (with the exception of augmented snapshot gear) simply lists snapshot bonuses as "enhances snapshot effect" which isn't very helpful we just know it's a positive bonus of 1% or more.

With the Aurore Beret I assume the value to be 4% same as the haste, but I got an Impulse belt today and it has no real indication of it's value. So nothing is jumping out at me on the internet about testing and I have no real way to conclusively test it myself what with the ficulty of Ranged delay due to lack of auto-attack function and Rapid shot randomness etc.

If anyone has anything on the value or there best guess from experience would be nice.

Right now based on the degree of difficulty in obtaining and it's level I'd guess it was 2-4% and I intend to use it anyway for tp gain but would be nice to know an exact value if anyone has come up with one.

The real question though is why do we not simply recieve the benefits of haste (a well labeled and visible stat value on gear) with ranged attacks, appart from a semi immunity if you will to slow which we'll often be out of range of anyway or absorb with a shadow (if non aoe) what was the thinking behind this lol.

Simple answer: SE hates rangers.

I did some testing not long ago before and after getting my Sylvan Caban +2 for Snapshot values using Fraps and a video editing software for frame by frame capture.
Here's all the results I got, decided to test all relevant Snapshot gear while I was at it. This was previously posted on BG.
I'm not going to post detailed test results (frame count, etc), just the % decrease in delay.

-Mirke Wardecors with Snapshot +5 - 10% delay reduction (basically did this to lay out a base frame count for Snapshot +5 and/or 10% delay reduction)

-Velocity Shot - 10% delay reduction (Did this to compare to the Wiki result which used to say 15%, someone changed it recently after I posted my results on BG, it seems)

-Sylvan Caban +1 and +2 - 10% delay reduction with Velocity Shot active. Gave similar results to Velocity Shot + Mirke.

-Zha'Go's Barbut - 3% delay reduction. Was disappointed to find out it was this weak.

-Sylvan Gapette +1 - 3%, Hoping +2 will have a more potent effect, don't have it just yet to test.

-Impulse Belt - 3%

I was hoping Caban +2 further increased the Velocity Shot enhancement, but it's already good enough with a Mirke-like effect with better stats basically. Unsure if R.att is enhanced though with Velocity Shot, unfortunately I don't have the time to dedicate to testing R.att atm.

Didn't bother testing Aurore Beret as it was already stated to be 3% on Wiki, nor did I bother with any Ebon gear, since they're both hard to get, and inferior compared to other gear choice at this time.

I'll keep testing any future Snapshot releases whenever some come out, and I'll definitely work on Gapette +2 testing once I have it done.
