Bring me glory in combat!
Henzell says...
  1. Two levels of weapon skill lower the time it takes to swing by 0.1 turns until you reach the weapon's minimum. Mindelay for each weapon is the lower of 0.7 or (base delay / 2) rounded down, or 0.5 for rapiers. It's also listed on the weapon's description.
  2. For a dagger at 1.0 base delay with a 0.5 min delay you would need (1 - 0.5)/0.1 * 2 = 5*2 = 10 short blades skill to reach the min delay.
