The Relation Between Weapon Speed and Caster Damage

Theorycrafting from the beta raised some interesting questions regarding weapon choices for casters (more specifically for Wizards) that resulted in a very mathy forum post on the official Wizard forums and a question in the Q&A at Blizzcon. To help explain the relation between weapon speed and caster damage, Bashiok made a post with a wonderful response from Wyatt Cheng, the Technical Director for Diablo 3.

The response post can be read here, but be advised- it is quite involved. However, it is totally worth the read.
