Casting Delirium transforms the user into an Undead Rat Man for 60 seconds, unless it, Werewolf or Werebear are cast (again), or the user is reduced to 1 Life or travels between Acts. While transformed, all active class skills are restricted from use except for the aforementioned Werewolf and Werebear, Armageddon and Druid Summoning skills.

Attack Speed

The table below lists the minimum Increased Attack Speed required to reduce the number of frames in the (Normal) Attack animation and thus increase its speed. These breakpoints should apply regardless of weapon or unit type (so they're the same for a player, mercenary or Iron Golem).

Frames EIAS IAS for Weapon Speed
20 10 5 0 -5 -10 -15 -20 -30
10 10
9 21 9
8 34 26 13 7 2
7 50 54 35 27 20 14 8 3
6 72 117 83 70 58 48 39 30 23 10

+33% Attack Speed (EIAS) from Delirium has already been taken into account.

Block Rate

Undead Rat Man has no blocking animation, so when blocking its hit recovery animation is used instead and thus Faster Hit Recovery, not Faster Block Rate, reduces animation length.

Hit Recovery

The table below lists the minimum Faster Hit Recovery (FHR) required to reduce the number of frames in the hit recovery and blocking animations and thus increase their speed.

Frames 19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5
FHR 0 4 7 10 15 20 27 35 48 65 86 129 200 414 4680
