Rapid

This article is about the Invention perk. For other uses, see Rapid (disambiguation).

Rapid is a Smithing and Firemaking perk which acts differently for each skill. It can be created in tool gizmos and ancient 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, each hammer swing has a 5% chance per rank to grant double progress (i.e. 20 per swing instead of 10). Double heat is lost with every hammer swing, including swings that do not grant double progress. 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.
