was just thinking. if there was a spell, that takes no time to cast, and has no cooldown, HbB would result in some infinite damage.

no, obviously, there are hardly any spells that take no time...
(pretty much just virulent disease and maybe some chronomancy spells)...
and all of them have a cooldown, but just how far can we push it with cooldown reductions of all sorts and spell cast time?

the first thing that comes to mind is the celestial/sun category which already is pretty good with both of these.
now, sun ray roduce light rather than take it, so maybe HbB isn't necessary, but the sun cloak also helps with anything other you would try to cast million times.

HbB - no spell cost for up to 6 turns
celestial/sun/sun cloak - around 30% CD reduction. spellcast speed too.
spell/meta/quicken spell - 30% CD reduction.
spell/eather/eather avatar - all arcane and eather CD by 3.
spell/temporal/essence of speed - global +56%, very high cast cost, making HbB a requirement.
you know what, if i give up the celestial sun i can just go for a higher archmage run...

but seriously, how far can we push it?

there are at least 2 technique talents that take no time to activate, and i know at least 1 that has no cooldown.
maybe make a weapon HbB adventurer?

I think spell cooldown reduction has a soft cap somewhere.

A little bit of a starters guide written by yours truly here.
