Question....Can monks put darts in quiver and get the same haste effect or can darts even be put into a quiver?

Why not put the arrows in a 100 percent weight reduction bag...would that have the same effect?

No. Arrows that are derived from a weight reducing quiver give bow haste. (Weight reduction divided by 3 equals bow haste). So using arrows that come from this bag give you 20 percent bow haste. Arrows that are fired that come from an ordinary weight reduction container do not give haste to your bow.

That's not quite exactly accurate. As long as the Fleeting Quiver (or any weight reducing quiver) is in inventory the Ranger's bow haste will apply, even if the arrows don't come from the quiver. At least that's how it worked a few months ago last time I tested. If I recall correctly the quiver didn't even have to be equipped, it could simply sit in one of the 8 inv slots, but I'm not 100% sure on that. I'll test it next time I find a HQ Lion Skin.

I went to Gfay and locked in on Nexus Scion and timed myself for 1 minute sets, here were my result from using Turret Keeper's bow with 28 dly.

With quiver out of inventory and no other haste on me i fire away 21 shots per min.

With quiver on me.
Fired away 24.5 shots

W/o quiver but with 41% haste Fearsome Girdle fired off 28 arrows.

With quiver and haste on i fired off 34 arrows.
As a warrior the quiver isnt very justifiable except the rare chance i'd bow kite say an Ice Giant but that eats up arrows w/o those ranger crits ( i still have Blood of Ranger flowing thru me i love archery). I sold mine to gain back storage room of the 10 slot bag it had replaced so in my opinion it was only good for Kiting or circumstances where you could chisel away on mobs for a longer durations.

My guess it adds about 20% haste...below is all the work done :) hehee
Ok I did the math based on EQ equation of haste. delay / 1+haste % .... which in this case is 28 delay 41% haste and X% haste. 28/1.41 =19.858.... Now to figure out shots per min you divid 60 by delay/10. in this case if would be 60/ 2.8 =21 :)
41% haste and 28 delay should give you 30 shots.
There are caps for haste based on your lvl so I'm guessing this guy went over that :)
It is impossible to know you got a half shot in without knowing the haste on the quiver btw :)
Taking off 6 from delay would of gave 27 shots.
20% haste = about 25 shots.
24.5 shots = 13% haste.
41% plus 12.5% = about 35 shots
24.5% haste = 28 shots aka 21.42 delay
22 delay = 2.2 seconds so can't get 1 shot off per second with that delay(post lower down)

To talk like you know all the facts when you really know very little is one sign of ignorance :)
#Huski, Posted: May 30 2004 at 5:33 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ok...I have to post this....I play on Tarrew-Marr and as of late there is 1 particular vendor that is going out of they're way to try rip peeps off. They are actually trying to sell the skins for 8k and the Quiver for 10k!!! DONT BUY IT! There is no Haste on this item...I have used one for a while on my Ranger and there is no difference other than weight reduction! You would have an easier time getting your Tailoring skills up ..getting the skin and making it. maybe ill start farming it again and flooding the market with 4 or 5k Fleeting quivers as they used to be before the rip-off artists moved in to TM.

I sell the skins at 2.4k and the quivers are 4k, been on alot of servers and no server is cheapest or most expensive on anything. Simply depends what item is flooded in the bazaar. Amount of times i've seen traders sell something hideously high for another to come on undercut him by a few hundred plats and thinks he selling cheap befor you know it everyone is selling at that price.

I sold a HQ Lion skin yesterday on Firiona Vie for 3K, where Fleeting Quivers go for 8K. You simply can't find HQ Lion Skins for sale in the bazaar. Maybe its because FV is a low pop server, but I'm the only person in NK I ever see hunting Highland Lions. The next HQ I get I'm going to try and sell it for 4K.

Like Twigen's post below, I also have used the parser to compare fire rate with and without this quiver. I am a 65 ranger with AM3 and EQ. The effect was about 20% or so. I think it may be a straight 6 off the delay (the 60% weight reduction = 6 reduction in delay). But since most bows are around a 35 dealy anyway, the difference between 20% and a flat 6 is going to be very hard to measure.
I can also assure you that it is apparentin raids. When I am standing next to another 65 ranger, with the same bow and same buffs, I fire faster than a char without the fleeting quiver.

IMO, a MUST have item for an EQ/AM3 ranger.

I just put one on my level 25 Shadow Knight and I have observed a noticable decrease in the delay when shooting arrows. I have not timed anything yet to give you specific numbers but it is noticeable.
Haste or no
# May 19 2004 at 1:10 PM Rating: Decent
This seems to be an eternal question, does the fleeting quiver provide haste or not. Well with the revamp of the information provided with the items, I would have to say that the only thing it provides is weight reduction. There is no mention of haste on it. It would be funny that this item would be the only haste item that does not mention it.

Had one, never saw a difference, sold it.

Atm I am a 64 Ranger with Swiftwind <40% haste> and Fleeting quiver and I don't need math to know when quiver or swiftwind is not in inventory I shoot slower....... Yes it stacks with worn haste yes I know new patch doesn't say anything but why would you need weight reduction on an arrow only container think about it arrows don't weight jack just trust me get one and you'll see
#singdarra, Posted: Jan 30 2004 at 6:21 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) if you got endless quiver. and you have 1 arrow in your ammo slot do you get haste or do the arrows have to be in the bag?
RE: OK newbie Question hehe
# Feb 03 2004 at 5:55 AM Rating: Good
If you have the Fleeting Quiver in your inventory then it dosent matter where the arrows are in your inventory as they will ALL have the same weight reduction (haste) based on your quiver. You can even check this using a full 100% weight reduction bag and then a regular backpack and moving the arrows from one to another will have NO effect on your weight. Hope this helps.

Bow Affect Parsed
# Nov 18 2003 at 12:46 PM Rating: Good
After reading all the arguments about what effect does this have on a bow, I figured I'd parse my log, calculating the delay from both hits and misses.

I am using swiftwind (40% haste)
Fleeting Quiver (CW says 20% bow haste)
Primal Velium Reinforced Bow (damage 33 delay 35)

Using the tried and true formula of FQ WR / 3 = 20% bow haste + 40% from swiftwind + 1=1.60


Case Closed.

Here's a snippet from 11/22 with the primal velium reinforced bow with spell haste as well:

[Sat Nov 22 07:13:39 2003] Your bow shot did double dmg.
[Sat Nov 22 07:13:39 2003] a fearsome planar specimen was hit by non-melee for 206 points of damage.
[Sat Nov 22 07:13:39 2003] You hit a fearsome planar specimen for 206 points of damage.
[Sat Nov 22 07:13:40 2003] Your bow shot did double dmg.
[Sat Nov 22 07:13:40 2003] a fearsome planar specimen was hit by non-melee for 182 points of damage.
[Sat Nov 22 07:13:40 2003] You hit a fearsome planar specimen for 182 points of damage.

Yes, that's 1 second between shots. So if you think the fleeting quiver doesn't contribute to bow firing rate, think again.

don't get me wrong, but thats just log time, which like chat time is often barely in-sync with the game, did the DPS reflect the haste ? I am not disputing it, with a name like fleeting it should be faster, but how does WR = Haste if you are below the encumbrance cap ? Confused in Norrath :)

Well, you're both right. The one second between shots is an anomaly of the logging. He calculated a haste-adjusted delay of 21.875. Since delay is measured in tenths of a second, that means it's actually 2.1875 seconds between shots.

2.1875 with just the fleeting and swiftwind yes, read it again and you'll see he also said spell haste.

#dannynkim, Posted: Aug 29 2003 at 3:43 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I dont think any of you know. Since its not an effect on the quiver it makes it tough to know exactly what % it is, which explains 200 different explanitions on 200 different posts. Point being IT DOSENT MATTER. Does it make your bow faster, yes, so just leave it at that, and to the people who actually sit there with calculators and try to figure this out, you seriously need to unplug for a while. IT IS JUST A GAME.

Endless Quiver does one thing.

It gives you an unlimited supply of the arrow you have equipped in your ammo slot. (If you have one fantastic arrow, and it takes a major effort to get it, with endless quiver when you shoot it, you don't actually lose the arrow in your ammo slot.)

Endless Quiver does not provide haste.

If you have the Endless Quiver AA, and put your fleeting quiver in the bank, you will NOT have the quiver's haste effect on your bow.

For this reason it is advisable to keep your fleeting quiver on you even when you have the Endless Quiver AA.

Hey, this has to do with what some people were talking about several posts below about calculating the haste on your bow ...

umm regular haste items such as schw, fbss, etc. dont affect the delay on your bow at all. So there is nothing to add, u just use the haste on your quiver if u have one.


And btw, you dont need any formulas to figure out haste on things lol. Just subtract your haste decimal from 1, then multimply the resulting decimal by the delay of the item in question, and it will give u the final result.

Well yes, this is still a formula, but you guys were making it way too complex lol

Quiver haste STACKS with item haste AND spell/bard haste, up to your max haste for your level. Quiver haste = weight reduction/3, so this gives you 20% haste. If you have SCHW, you get 42% haste shooting your bow, 22% meleeing.

So there. Go to and it's all explained by people who actually know.

Combine chances?
# Apr 23 2003 at 3:26 PM Rating: Decent
35 posts
I know this quiver has a trivial of 222, so what would be the chances of a successful combine with a tailoring skill level of 105? I hope to buy enough supplies to make at least three of these for guild mates, but if my chance of success is only 5% to 10%, then I need to get my skill level up before wasting the money on a failed combine. Any ideas on the success chance?

Yeah, at 105 skill you'll only have a 5% chance of success.

If you decide to skill up making Wu's armour to 158, you'll then have a 43% chance of success on the fleeting quivers.

If you skill all the way up to 210 you will reach a 95% chance of success on the fleeting quivers, which is the highest possible.

So you should probably either skill up to at least 158 first or find a more skilled tailor to do the combines for you. You might be able to find a tailor around 190-220 range that would do the combines for free, since each combine will give him a shot at a skill-up, which tend to cost either a lot of plat or a lot of time at that level.

Until you get to within 30-50 points or so of the trivial, you have the same chance as if your skill were 0. That is 5% (the minimum success rate). Bite the bullet and do your Wu's and get skill up to 158. Then you may have a 10 to 15 percent chance (but that's still kind of a guess). For good info on tradeskill stuff, check out

Ok, after messing around online trying to parse ****(which i dont know why, i simply cannot do) i found out a simple math formula that works for ANY haste effect on delay of weapons and bows.

For a bow (its more important =):

Take the delay of your bow, and multiply it by the percentage of haste you have (including quiver haste which is 1/3 of the WR stated on it)


My Blessed Faydark Thunderbolt has a delay of 38, and i have a Fleeting Quiver of 20% Bow Haste and a Sash of the Dragonborne of 24% Haste (add the hastes together for 44% haste total on bows). So the formula for me is: 38 x .44 (decimal form of percentages) = 16.72
Now i take the product of 16.72 and subtract that from the current delay of 38. That results in a new delay of 21.28 with total haste without spells. If you want to know what the delay is with spells just add the percentage of the spell haste in with it.

For melee weapons, just take out the quiver haste and your golden =). Seems quite simple, and it is. However, i do not no if this formula is correct, but it works fine for me and my friends who use it. Just thought id share it with you. Later
Good try, but ultimatley, Wrong =)

Okay, i looked over your formulae extensivley and there was always somthing glaringly wrong.

100% haste = attacking 2x as much. or HALVING the delay of a weapon.

so if your Blessed Faydwer Thunderbolt has a delay of 38, after adding 100% haste, it would have a delay of 19.

You state that with 44% haste, you have a 22 delay.. well, youd be chopping off more than 44% of that delay. MUCH more.

heres the formula for haste -

D/(1 + H) = X

D is your Delay
H is your % haste in decimal form
X is your new delay.

Remember, % is just based off of the number 1. 100% = 1, 50% = .5, 25% = .25 etc.

Then you DIVIDE your beginning Delay by your sum!

heres an example.

We'll Take your Blessed Faydwar Thunderbolt with a delay of 38, and youre wearing a FBSS. (we wont add in quivers yet).

D / (1 + H) = X

Plug in our numbers

38 / (1 + .21) = X

Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally (come on, that should get a laugh!)

38 / (1.21) = X

31.4 = X

so 31.4 is your new delay.

now lets throw in a quiver to the mix, we'll use your sash of the dragon born, and your fleeting quiver.

D / (1 + H) = X
D / (1 + (.24 + 20)) = X
D / (1 + (.44) = X
D / (1.44) = X
26.38 = X

Your new delay on your belssed thunderbolt is 26.38, NOT 21.28

To ACHIEVE a delay of 21.28 youd need a much faster delay! and just cus i was bored, heres the haste youd need along side all the math that showed me how i got it!

Using my above formula --

D / (1 + H) = X

We'll plug in our knowns, we know the Delay of the weapon, and the new delay after haste is applied, were trying to find out the haste itself, so lets solve for H. (this is much easier shown on paper where i can show where i have fractions, basically think of all "/"'s as fractions.

38 / (1 + H) = 21.28

Multiply both sides by (1 + H)/1

38 = 21.28/1 * (1 + H)/1

Multiply the right side

38 = 21.28 + 21.28H

Subtract 21.28 from both sides

16.72 = 21.28H

Divide both sides by 21.28

.78 = H

your answer is 78% haste.

so to have a 21.28 delay with a 38 delay weapon, you need to have 78% haste total.

***NOTE*** Contrary to what this shows, i AM bad at math, lol. Took me a while to solve for H. but i assure you, this is correct ***NOTE***

I have found out that the fleeting quiver isn't a haste item so it doesn't make u shoot ur arrows faster. The reason why it is better is that it is 60% WR instead of 22% WR the tailored quivers have.

Quivers aren't explicitly haste items. They affect bow delay only. I've heard this explained several ways. It's suppose to reduce arrow drawing delay, which in turn speeds up the rate you shoot arrows. It gives a haste of 1/3 the weight reduction, so 60% WR gives 20% haste bow delay as compared to just over 7% with the tailored quivers.

I guess you can think of it as being able to draw and nock your arrows faster if they are lighter. =) I haven't quantified this myself, but I have noticed a slight speed improvement in my bow using the tailored quiver.
