Activation Time for skills

Is there any chance this will be added to the API at some point? Working on a project right now and can't find it anywhere and would rather avoid adding it manually to every skill in the game.

    Agreed. Currently working on an app and finding that alot of the skill information is incorrect or broken.

    That is probably due to the rather significant amount of aftercast on some skills and you are probably interested in attacks per second rather than activation time.

    Well, i'm looking for activation times themself, like Meteor Shower takes 3.5s to cast fully, that's the number i'm looking for and nowhere in the API does that number appear. While the wiki has it, I really hope they didn't have to hard code that.
