Many spells of the same class and level have the same cooldown, although some spells have much longer cooldowns. Spells with long cooldowns include all symbol spells (EG: Symbol of Pain), and Dimension Door.
The standard cooldown for Artificer, Druid, Cleric, Favored Soul, Wizard, and Bard spells is 1.5 + 0.5*level seconds. Sorcerers have reduced cooldown as a class feature, and their standard delay is 1.25 + 0.25*level. Rangers and paladins have longer cooldowns of 1 + 1*level seconds.
Note: Every usable ability and spell in DDO also triggers the minimum globally-shared cooldown of 1 second.
- Arcane Alacrity: epic past life feat, stacks 3 times, decreases cooldown for spells by 3 / 6 / 10%.
- Reborn in Light
- Quick Draw reduces the cooldown triggered by switching weapons, eliminates the delay between casting and attacking, or the delay after activating Action Boost
- Items with Linguistics enchantment reduce the cooldown of social skills
