Interface: Weapon speed clarity

I'm playing a halfling hunter with a sabre of speed (Captain's Cutlass :) ).

I've noticed that "blindingly fast" applies to delay 3 or lower. I think there should be one additional level of speed indicated, because there's a significant difference between delay 3 and delay 2. Given the current interface though there is no apparent gain from using Okawaru's finesse ability, because either way it just says that my attack is "blindingly fast".

Also - finesse is double attack speed, correct? But no boost to movement speed.

"delay 3 or lower" except that iirc it's impossible to get any lower

3 is the lowest you can get with any weapon due to skill and speed brand etc.

Haste / Berserk / Finess can push you down to 2. Unless that's been changed.

Re: Interface: Weapon speed clarity

haste/berserk affect action cost (which doesn't affect the "attack speed" display in @)
finesse does change that though yeah
