Notes

Arcane Devotion is an essential power for warlocks and conjurers to reduce their spell casting times, with the class being all-but-unplayable without it.

As of 1.6.3, the spell functions as it's description suggests, increasing the casting speed. Thus given a casting time of $ t_0 $, the casting time $ t = \frac{t_0}{1 + cast speed} $.

For example, if a Conjurer casts Energy Barrier, which had a cast time of 2 seconds, with level 5 Arcane Devotion the cast time is effectively 1 second.

A battle between two mages can be decided by the level of this buff, especially between warlocks. It must be recasted every minute, which puts mages in a disadvantage in long battles.
