The use of Basic Skills is the key to using Core and Mastery Skills for most classes and it is also your basic way to deal damage to enemies.
Its damage and attack speed are based on your weapons but there is another way to make your character hit faster.
The Rapid Aspect provides your Basic Skills with an increased percentage of attack speed, allowing you to strike or fire projectiles faster.
Rapid Aspect Effects (Basic Skill Aspect)
With the Rapid Aspect imprinted on one of your items, your Basic Skills will gain a certain percentage of increased attack speed.
This will stack with the attack speed provided by your weapon or other passives that you may have, allowing you to strike enemies faster.
Using the Rapid Aspect is good for classes that depend on landing blows with their Basic Skills to generate their resource for casting skills.
