Battlemage Decent Speed Infusion

I would have posted this in the bam subforum, but it's dead.
How useful is attack speed for bams considering out telecasting?
Is it worth it to forgo speed infusion in favor of rerolling for %int/crit damage + sharp eyes neb?
(I'd rather not use nodes for those skills because of the cool down and using up a valuable node slot)

I'd go from attack speed 3 to attack speed 4 by giving up dSI.
My current glove is dSE/dSI/crap. Empress glove. Debating rerolling it or upgrading to absolab. I don't want to use a tyrant because I don't think it's worth it for the price and the stats are only a little bit better than a fully scrolled absolab unless you get it to high star count (and 5-7 is my reasonable limit at the moment).

Just keep your DSI/DSE gloves for skill purpose. And get new absolab for % crit rate.

I do not like to switch equipment for skill purposes. Doesn't last long enough to be worth it, and not worth giving up an IA line for more buff duration.
What I'm basically asking is:

1) Keep dsI/dSE emp gloves, don't upgrade
2) Put dSE neb on emp gloves, reroll for int% and/or crit dmg, giving up dSI
3) Make new absolab glove with dSE neb and try for crit dmg/int%, giving up dSI

I feel a difference when attacking at 0 speed cap. It makes using fb after a telecast feel more smooth/faster. Idk if it's just me though.

@beefly: Why do you quote me?
Some people feel extra attack speed makes no difference, some will.
It's up to them to decide whether if the speed increase / decrease makes a difference or not.
But I'll say that speed 3 / 4 makes almost no difference as opposed to 3 / 4 : 0 / 1 anyway, which is like only doable by using Estaff to achieve 0 speed easily unless you've DSI + Inner Ability + MPE + AYA if you're to use the usual slow staff, and the difference is only more obvious if you're to telecast horizontally.
Vertically wise you've to wait yourself to fall down anyway, unless you want to do telecast downward then I guess the difference will be the same as horizontal one.
To be honest just use an evil wing and any other slow staff / use DSI and not using it and go whack the Chaos Vellum and Magnus and see it for yourself on whether if those extra speed makes a difference or not.
If you can't tell any difference / it produces a big difference in determining your chance of survivability in those bosses then you know what to do.

@piana: cause you know this stuff.

especially during lag, I see no change in attack speed when I telecast, and I usually blame dark shock because I am sometimes not able to teleport left and right fast enough to feel the full effect of the high attack speed.

@beefly: Yeah, blame Dark Shock.
Without Dark Shock you can actually do telecasting without any server lag, with it on it's a disaster.
It's as smart as what they've done to Dawn Warrior and Blaze Wizard.

@piana: I feel that attack speed helps if you're lagging so you just stand there holding FB and use chains/shock sparingly. Also able to spam more ults during lag.

Thanks for the advice.
I've decided to give up dSI and work on my absolab glove + shoulder.
As for telecasting, I use either horizontal or vertical depending on the situation. Vertical for tall hitbox bosses like vellum, cQueen, czak, and horizontal for shorter ones.
I usually default to vertical though, because I feel it gives me slightly more control.
