Rapid is a Smithing and Firemaking perk which acts differently for each skill. It can be created in tool gizmos.
While firemaking, it grants a 5% chance per rank to speed up an action by a game tick (0.6 seconds).
While smithing, it causes your heat to be consumed twice as fast but has a 5% chance per rank each hammer swing to grant double progress for the swing. This makes it a good perk for active smiths who re-heat the in-progress items often.
When the perk triggers, it prompts the message: Your rapid perk speeds up the action process.
