Haste Stacking !

OK - this is how haste works.
If you have an item that you wear that gives you haste (flowing black silk sash & silver chitin hand wraps for example), that is ITEM haste.

If you have a haste spell cast on you, INCLUDING a haste spell from an item such as the Eyepatch of Plunder (The actual spell is called Captain Nalot's Quickening), then that is SPELL haste.

Spell haste and Item haste DO stack.
The best haste item you are wearing will be hasting you, and any others won't work - same with the spells.

I believe that Bard song haste stacks also, but cannot confirm this 100%. Everything else I've said is correct.

As for bard haste, there are 2 (actually 3 but it doesn't really matter for this post) different types of haste. Usual haste (as Warsong of Zek - 60% haste) and overhaste (as Rizlona's Call of Flame - 30% haste). The usual haste is considered like spellhaste and doesn't stack with another spellhaste, yet the overhaste will stack with another spellhaste. And of course both stack with item haste.

So... will this, or will this NOT stack with Monk epic Haste and Item haste? I have heard both, but I allways figure if people could be getting another 20% or 18% haste then this would be much more popular.

So I am guessing they don't stack. Also, 40% celestial tranq + 36% item haste is damn near cap anyhow, right?

Bard haste songs ARE spell haste, except for a few specific songs, like the Vah Shir and Ervaj lines. The monk epic effect is a bard song but a normal one, and does NOT stack with spell haste. The effects may stack, but only the highest haste will work.

April 10, 10:55 PM went down.
Camp time was 38 hours 20 minutes.

Some cool people kept me company and were good enough to not KS the spawn on me although they could have easily. Thanks LDain and Swiftre.

Also Swift was good enough to let me loot a map piece of Lodi during my camp.

Off to the Dire wolves...

After reading all this business about 19-30-31-38 hour spawn, I would try to time it right. I've had my ranger camped there for almost 4 months straight and nothing. Well night before last I couldn't log on until 1am. When I did, there were 3 peeps sitting around SF's corpse....

First time I had seen it alive or dead, so I wasn't upset, no I know the time. I came back at 18hr's to make sure noone else was already camping it. There wasn't so waited till 20hrs after kill and nothing. Came back this morning at 29 hours and waited till 31 and a half, but nothing...

Was playing my alt, waiting on 38 hour spawn, but couldn't find a group, so I logged on my ranger to see what was up, and there SF was coming up over the backside of the hill where he spawns. I estimate that he'd been up for less then 15 min because there were people that had just zoned out.

Killed first at 1am Tuesday. repop at 1230ish pm wednesday. Just shy of 36 hours. This is on Zeb, and from talking to others in game that have camped him multiple times, it's rarely or never 19 hours. This is just Zeb, not speaking for other servers.

Sorry got to run, time to get this mask already sheesh...

Clear up a couple things:

1) Hear the wings flappin" -- True -- If you can hear anything over the annoying wind blowing, then you can hear the wings, but he's large so you'll prolly just see him first.

2) Combine part is no longer bugged. I didn't talk to anyone to start it and after I got all the pieces, I went straight to the lost pirate and said I'll find the parts of the map and he gave me the bag. DID NOT have to zone to get combine to work.

3) As soon as I turned back in, A Rabid Snow Cougar poped on top of lost pirate and began attacking. About the same fight as SF, hits a little harder then a snow cougar(around 80 max) and a little more hp (around 2khp est.) Very easy fight with no buffs on a 55 ranger, could do either with a 40-45 ranger if snare dotting and buffed. If you've ever fought Midnight, SF and Rabid Snow Cougar are the equivalent. Rabid dropped nothing.

Hope this helps and GOOD LUCK with camp because never again for me....

Ok at level 32 me was running around igloos killing cougars when a bard came along and pulled the whole camp , none the less to say i rooted 1 killed it and then rooted another killed it , then decided i would not be ksing them anymore after letting them know of my displeasure i decided to move to other side of zone and kill the direwolves , to my luck the Direwolf Stalker was up . I checked my guild noone wanted it so i kicked its butt . Then same bard came over after dropping all the cougars and took all my direwolves , well aside from screaming at them i decided to go camp cougars again , and wasnt but a couple hours later a /ooc was shouting lodi map piece rotting free to loot . There was only me and bard in the zone i took off for a copy =) , got the map piece was 2 on the corpse . Then back to igloos and wasnt 30 minutes later Stormfeather was up, was awesome luck , I asked guild for help no one cared or seemed to be interested so i killed it with some time kiting for mana , Waited until next day to finnish this quest and get eye patch of plunder . Was lots of fun outside of being chased out of camp by the bard but also helped me get the named , This is awesome for druids for working on melee skills , they are a pain in rearend no matter the class .

This effect stacks with Ranger swiftwind, also you can have the effect up with the highest lvl Ench haste, but I don't know if they both work together or not. High lvl SHM haste overwrites the effect tho.

Now that I have the eyepatch - I give you my strategy..its not the best by far, but it worked for me. After countless hours of camping stormfeather, I said forget it, and decided to leave an alt character bound to the docks where stormfeather spawns. Every day when I would log on to play some eq, I'd first check my alt and see if stormfeather was up. Sure as sheit, one day he was and I finished the quest in under an hour. Hey, not the quickest strategy, but I dont have time to figger out if hes a 19, 29, 38, or 40 hour spawn lol. grats me, and grats to you in advance ;p

The haste components won't stack. You'll only get the single highest haste out of them all, not all of the hastes added together. The songs have other effects besides the haste, so you still benefit from those effects (AC, STR, etc.) on top of the Quickening.

This is somewhat true. Always keep in mind there are different 'Versions' of haste.

Version 1 Haste Stacks with the rest of the versions of haste (2, 3), along with a haste item.

Although, as you stated, a Version 1 haste won't stack with another Version 1 haste, it will just take the greatest one.

The effect is a spell based haste, wich stack with any item haste effects.

My friend had been camping stormfeather for 6 days straight. he was thee almost all the time and nothing popped. He was also being harrassed by some rude people in a guild called <Alpha Storm>. They are known for KSing and in general being all around jerks on the stormhammer server. Funny thing is my friend helped this guy named Himas from that guild earlier with parts of the quest then while he is camping Stormfeather the guy and 4 other from <Alpha Storm> come over and the guy tells my friend "the Stormfeather camp is mine don't KS me". How's that for gratitude. Anyways after 6 days of being harrassed by these people I asked him for his username and password and tell him I will check on Stormfeather if I get a chance in the middle of the night. SO I go watch a movie and come back and...nothing up. Then I go to sleep and wake up in the the middle of the night and again...nothing. So I jump in the shower and realize I forgot to camp him but I was like oh well, he'll be ok for a few minutes. I jump out get dressed and go to log out as I am on my way to work and I notice he is standing at the soulbinder nekked. I was like wtf! Then I saw the text..."you have been slain by Stormfeather" I hit the track button,run over and loot his corpse and commenced to beat the begesus out of that bird. Needless to say he was stoked when I called him at work with the news!

i can tell you that the 19hour spawn is totaly wrong, it maybe was true, but now it isn't anymore... i've camped him 1week, during the whole week he spawned on a 28-34 hours cycle...(i think) and i wasn't up during the 3first day at his spawn time, si i had to wait till he spawn during the day on the 4th day... now, my alt got the eyepatch. she has to ask a druid for a lull on bloodmaw, fd trick didn't worked for me... even when i finaly managed to get trade windows open, he always gave me the meat back saying that he don't need it..

FD worked for me on blood. Ran around the back of him and fd'd. af course i had to wait for him to turn back around beacouse of agro. but when he did, i opened inventory, picked up meat with cursor and got up, opened trade window and put one meat in and fd'd again. Put rest of meat in window waited 1 minute and traded. went like a charm =)

I just finished this camp and agree, either there are two different timers or the 19 hour timer doesn't occur any more or as often. I just missed SF after camping him 66 hours (a guildie got him at 68 hours after I had loggged) and I got him the next cycle when he popped at 35 hours. So after reading about 19 and 33 hours timers, I'd guess it is actually 33 hours plus some variable value (1 or 2 hours) or a multiple of 33 plus the variable value.

did the tizmaks meat in under an hour. they drop velium, so it's not all bad. went to bloodmaw, handed him the 4 meats, he despawned, but i didn't know he was supposed to despawn, so i freaked. i check the quest, doh, you just say "can i have the map please" (something like that) to the gnome, boom. easiest part to get.

i run to iceclad to scope out where stormfeather spawns. i sit there for 45 minutes, and bamn, he spawns directly on my head. that's luck. on the way to the dire wolves, a shaman is taking out lodi, i throw in some stabs, boom, i have that piece.

then to the dire wolves. i had a friendly guild bard agro as many as he could, then i would hydra my wizard and aoe them to death. after about 20 minutes, give or take, stalker spawns, i have that peice.

i get the book from the lost pirate (down on the shore, a stones throw from stormfeather spawn), combine. give it back to him, he hands me back other thing. at this point, a rabid cougar spawns. he was slightly harder than regular ones, but not a real challenge, he does aggro right away and only dropped a mq cougar pelt. give to captain nalot (he's in the igloos on the same island), and boom shakalaka, i have my mask.

as far as i can tell, it DOES not stack with other speed spells, but i haven't tested it with bard songs. this comboed with my ragebringer, i have constant 60% haste. i believe that is the fastest anyone has finished this quest. go me.

Does the clicky stack with other haste items?
RE: Stacking
# Nov 03 2003 at 2:07 PM Rating: Default

The haste effect on the Eyepatch will stack with haste (worn) items but not with player cast haste spells. In essence, the right click effect is the same as player cast.

Just an FYI, if you hang around in IC long enough, you can usually find Lodizal corpse rotting with the 4th piece of the map on it. I have stumbled across that stupid turtles corpse about a 1/2 dozen times while power leveling over the last 2 months (Bertoxx server).

For those of you wondering about the power leveling, Druids work best for this. Snare a handful of the Shadow Guardians from around the Tower of Frozen Shadow, drag them away from the tower, cast damage shield skin and normal damage shield on yourself and let them pound away on ya. After you heal yourself a few times, you'll notice the mobs just standing there. Theres 2 ways to go about this now, #1 if your below lvl 61 or do not have earthern roots, the player your PLing must do at least 11 damage (nuke oe melee). Then the druid can cast grasping roots on the mob which does 10 damage and lasts 48 secs. If your above 61 and have earthern roots spell, just have the player do one damage to the mob and then the druid can cast earthern roots on the mob (0 damage lasts 60 seconds) you can easily PL a player from lvl what ever well into the upper 20's or even low 30's, from there, do the same thing in Over There. Ya, I know, Druids have too much time on there hands. So let the flaming of druids begin yet again.

The haste components of spells and *most* bard songs will not stack. You will receive your haste from the most powerful spell haste component, and all other spell haste components will not be used.

There are a couple of bard haste songs that will stack with spell haste, but they are very specific songs, and will only add a small amount of haste. It seems like most people don't even bother using these songs, though.

Usually, a more powerful haste buff will over-write a less powerful haste buff, but it is possible to have more than one haste-type buff in effect on your character. However, most of the time this is because one of the buffs has effects in addition to haste; you do not receive additional haste from the buff, but you will still receive the other effects of the buff. For example, a monk can use Captain Nalot's Quickening (Eyepatch of Plunder), Jonthan's Whistling Warsong (Robe of the Whistling Fists, Whistling Fists), and Celestial Tranquility (Celestial Fists), all at the same time, but they only receive the 40% haste from Celestial Tranquility; Captain Nalot's Quickening (20% haste) is not used, and they receive no haste from Jonthan's Whistling Warsong (25% haste), however they do receive the additional AC and STR from Jonthan's Whistling Warsong.

I'll be happy to. Simply, you must acquire 4 items.

First Piece of an Iceclad Map this is dropped by a named wolf, A Dire Wolf Stalker. Kill everything in the area of n5708, p5944 and he'll eventually pop.

Second Part of an Iceclad Map this drops a griffon named Stormfeather. This is arguably the hardest, not because he's a tough mob, but because he has a very long spawn time. Anywhere from 19-36 hours. He spawns on one of the last islands, near a group of gnomes. Sorry, not sure of exact loc, atm.

Third Part of an Iceclad Map this is a mini-quest in Great Divide. Kill Tizmaks til you get a No Drop meat. Now find Bloodmaw, he's located in the cave system below Velks entrance. Give him the meat, then talk to the gnome captive, who'll give you his piece of the map.

Fourth Part of an Iceclad Map These drop off of Lodizal. He drops two every time.

Ok, now that you have the four pieces, speak to the lost pirate. say "I will find the parts of the map". He'll give you a Lore, No Drop book, which is a 4 slot container. You may need to zone out in order to use it. Put all 4 pieces in the book and combine. Now give it back to the Lost Pirate, and he'll give you back a Completed Iceclad Map. Take this to Captain Nalot, and he'll give you the Eyepatch of Plunder.

You can get the book at any time, just remember to leave a spot in inventory for it, since it is a container.

Reverse the 2 numbers and you have the correct spawn point.

The location you have given (660, 5950) would put you somewhere near the port in site.

5950, 660 is correct.

In the above description, it posts the effect as being triggered. I've seen other posts that list it as a proc. I'm wondering, is this a right clickable haste to cast? Can it be cast on others or only on yourself? Or is this simply a proc, like the fleeting fury proc on the iksar berserker's club? Thanks in advance for the info.
