I paid about 2.3k for these a couple days ago, on Veeshan. The next day, someone was selling them for 1.8k, because he needed the money =(

Wish I'd waited a day, but o well, even though the haste doesn't yet work for my 17 BST, I'm still glad I got them. Besides, now I can go to Velk's & maybe farm another pair =)

haste stacking

Ok I know that item haste will stack with your best song/spell you have on, but how,
say you have a haste of 22% on item (SChW), and 28% from a spell effect, and using staff of the wheel (100 delay)

are the two hastes added together (e.g. 22% off this and another 28% of a song for 50% total) to give a delay of 66.6...?


is the new delay from the best haste worked out:
28% from song:
then 78.125/1.22=64%?

I know it is a miniscule difference but it would be nice to know

I think you are on track with this thought but not quite accurate. As I understand it, the two hastes would stack, so 22% + 28% = 50% haste. And using the 100 delay weapon you mentioned, this would make it a 75 delay weap.

You have to take the haste divided by 2 then subtract that number from 100%. The resulting percentage times your delay is the final delay of the weapon. In simpler terms...

50%/2 = 25%
100% - 25% = 75%
75% x 100delay = 75 delay

100% haste would mean you hit twice as fast as normal - so the weap would be a 50 delay.

This make sense?

your final number is correct but the easiest way to calculate the haste is add up the stacked haste, say SCHW 22% and Spell:Celerity 50% so a total of 72% haste. Take the delay of your weapon and divide it buy 1+total stacked haste. so the 100 delay item talked about would be 100/1+.72 100/1.72 = 58 delay.

it's only 1% increase over FBSS haste. FBSS has 21% and SCHW has 22% Personaly I just went and farmed the SCHW. It's an extra little bit and as I see it every little bit helps. if you got a level 52 toon, then you can get this with ease, just take 2 or 3 friends along and you'll have it in no time, took me and 2 friends about half hour to get one for my monk, heaviest item I got for him at 1.0

Incorrect. Worn haste only becomes effective at (haste% - 1) level. These are 22% haste. They only become effective at level 21.

Parse your damage if you want to test this.

Heh...just got these for 12pp from what we believe to have been a GM event on the CT server...around midnigh CST, a small band of gnomish pirates came through OT (was on my way to help a ragefire kill) and they were basically threatening your life, or give up all cash on yer body. SO I gave my my money..conned db at 56...and VERY tough (some poor 30 bst got the one to 99% hps then died..heh).

Seems the more money you had on you and you gave up, the better the items you got. some people gave a few nothing...a friend gave out 1pp and a velium bracelet (the +30 mana, and 8 or 9 to all saves one)...I handed a pair of SCHW and a bag of tinkerers...10 slot, 100% WR, non-lore, non-magic....rather interesting thing...didn't know GM events happened on CT anymore..

FBSS does not give AC or other stats, but with SCHW, you can put nice waist item on with great AC, like a spider fur belt, per say, ... so yes the stats are important. On the other hand, the FBSS did stack with the monk epic so hands would not be the only haste item I looked at, ... as a monk. Just my 2cp worth.

Ive seen these run anywhere from 3K-4K in the bazaar. If you are thrifty like I am, hold out on them until you see someone selling them for 3200PP or less. Last night there were 3 people selling them for about 3600-3900PP but having seen someone selling them for 3200PP earlier in the day (when I didnt have the cash for them), I held off the purchase until this morning.

Logged into the bazaar and saw someone selling them for 3150PP and snatched them up quick. So at least on Mithanial Marr, anything up to 3200PP seems to be a fair price.

Got these on my 52 monk and had Fbss before i got the SCHW's as far as speed i can't tell the diff BUT like some of the other post said the stats on the SCHW make it a better choice all around besides it will allow you to put some other stat producing item in you waist slot and keep your speed with the extra of the stats on the SCHW!

FBSS is 21% haste, SCHW is 22%, so they are pretty much the same speed. The extra stats on the SCHW make it a helluva lot more expensive though. FBSS's go for around 1K-1.5K tops.

I feel like a moron. I have seen them go as low as 2600... or I think 2800? and I should have snagged them right then. I had a brand new 10k my friend handed me for my birthday. I Personally think the FBSS is WAY over rated. no stats and there are other haste items in game and the SCHW have nice stats. Besides you can quest for the 15% haste on the swiftclaw... which would be nice and not spending a lot of cash. once you have one, hand down to alts. [Goes to look if A bard can wear that....] Would be fun on a low level bard alt. but yes, if you look in game, as far as stats, belts can have some of the best stats. tunics, pants.. and belts usually. I just feel you would be hard pressed to get better hand items, but if you get haste on hands, you can get MUCH better waist items. I feel your missing out on TOO many stats taking up the waist slot.

Actually, there are three types of haste and as long as you only have one of each they do stack. The three types are equipment, spell, and bard song. Now in answer to the question at hand, the epic weapons that proc a haste; Swiftwind, Monks fist, warrior, ect cetera; are considered for this purpose bard haste. SO the 40% haste from Swiftwind would stack with the 22% haste of the SCHW. Thank you,

Someone posted a link, it was VERY clear and useful. but in MOST general cases. not ALWAYS in haste. you have 3 types of effect.

1. Spell effect. (this would include worn items, as if the spell is 'on' you)
2. Bard song effect (a pulsing effect as long as the song plays)
3. Proc effect (A weapon or items effect triggered through clicking or combat)

in most, not all, cases they stack. I think thats where the miss conception comes in. The rules change for some things. that page said Monk epic or that diciplin will stack....

No, this does not stack with ranger epic. As a 56 ranger, even though I do not have my Swiftwind, you can imagine how many times I have stared mindlessly at links of it that say Effect: Haste (Worn). And about the 3 types of haste (Worn, Spell, Bard) I have at times had 2 types of spell haste... for some reason Aanya's Quickening and Speed of Valon stack. Also, with all of the hastes like Speed of Vallon, Visions of Grandeur, and Speed of the Shissar, the haste spells (including Nalot's Quickening) stack with them, and a monk in my guild swears that even with Speed of Valon, his Eyepatch of Plunder effect makes him attack faster.

Once again, the ranger epic (Swiftwind) haste is worn, and so it does not stack with these, or believe me, lots of people would use both of these items.

I've read on another website that the monk epic haste-like effect (Celestial Tranquility) will stack with another Haste effect of equipment as it is not the in the haste spell line.
That would mean monks can have four haste effects at the same time: epic, equipment, spell and song.

Not sure if this is true as I have no monk and I'm far from having an epic, but it sure would be deadly to fight such a monk...

Bard songs (most) do not stack with spell haste. They are considered a magic effect which will stack with an item effect but not another magic effect. It does, however, appears that they stack due to other effects of the song. Example a 58 bard plays Jonthan's Inspiration and an enchater cast Aanya's Quickening on a monk, both icons appear, however, the monk will only get the haste from the chanters spell, seeing it's the higher haste. Yet the buff icon from the bard's song still appears because of the other buffs produced by the song.

Aanya's Quickening
1: Increase Attack Speed by 64%

Jonthan's Inspiration
1: Increase Attack Speed by 61% (L58) to 66% (L63)
2: Increase STR by 17 (L58) to 19 (L65)
4: Increase ATK by 15 (L58) to 17 (L65)
handwraps versus fbss

It does depend on situation also

I have a 32/38 two hander so wanted a haste item

I would have had to give up my 20 ac 15 str belt to use sash

I had to give up my 25 ac cobalt to use wraps (+10 ac and other +3 stats)

Clearly, at this point in my career, I am better off with the wraps. ( I am up 18 str and 5 ac plus the various other plus 3 bonuses)

Seems clear to me, AT THIS POINT IN TIME

About 6-8 months ago when I had finally saved 6k, I had a choice between SCHW and a Iksar regen BP ( also 6kpp ). Since I had regen spells and I melee'd alot I got the wraps. Now that I dont melee anymore ( read JBB ) I go to sell the wraps to get a BP for better canning....only to find that SCHW are like 3k tops now on Luclin while the Iksar BP is still 6k. I guess these are farmed constantly or the BP is just a rarer drop. They served me well for the time tho I could get a bit more XP/ faster pulls with better hp/mana regen. I think they drop in Velks, and from how Ive heard people talk about that zone/camp it may be less frustrating to spend the 3k or less to buy them now. If only the BP would drop in price too..

The question was do SCHW stack with the Paladin's spell Valor of Marr, or do haste items stack with this spell?

Answer is YES

If you have a haste item and cast Valor of Marr it does stack but you can not stack Valor of Marr with other spells that effects are haste it has to be an item to stack

Been pondering which to buy, my Dreadscale gauntlets provide more importants stats to me right now than the hand wraps, and I'm poor.

The FBSS is the way to go I think. Don't want to waste a hand slot.
RE: Stats
# Oct 05 2002 at 1:27 AM Rating: Decent
Depends on your situation as well. The FBSS doesn't have any stats besides the haste, so your waist slot is providing nothing else. Depending on the economy of your server, you may be able to get more AC/HP/Stats/Resists by going with the SCHW and using the waist slot for something else, or vice-versa.

Okay, I am NOT asking for u guys to flame me first of all, this is simply my opinion and advice on the SCHW.

First, I am a warrior, and this is warrior based. The SCHW has better haste and stats, as compared to FBSS with barely lesser haste and no stats. This may seem like a good deal, but lets think. You are a warrior, this 10ac is nice, but SCHW wastes a GREAT slot, cobolt guants are 25ac, if u get FBSS u already have 15 more ac and a little less haste, for pretty much the same price.

We also have to consider though, that you can get a SCHW for 4.5k or so, and then a TBB, for good ac and str in wasit slot, combined with ac and stats of SCHW. This is good, for quite a bit of pp though. It works great, for a period of time, but good guants are more common than a good wasit item.

So in the end it's your preference, FBSS and cobby guants (or cc for 1k more) for anywhere between 4.5k to 6k, or the SCHW for little less ac and better stats for more money. Long term and cheaper, plus FBSS is commonly sold, I personally reccomend the FBSS.

Once more, my information may be a little off, I may be wrong on some things. Don't flame me, I am trying to help everyone out with a suggestion. YAAAAAAAAAR!

to be quiet honest i dont think these are really meant for a tank of any kind really you are correct in your preferance of colbys and fbss over this

but as a rogue i am in dire need of haste items and i have a relatively good belt that i dont want to surrender to a haste item so i want to find a goos slot item that will do it for me so these will probly do me good for quiet some time or until i can afford bigger and better but for a non plate wearer these seem to be great alot of monks and rogues are scraping thier cp to get a pair and i for one am with them and i think on vallon zek atm the fbss its maybe 1k less at the most and it is still 1.8k

Actually there are a couple of exceptions to the statement "haste items do not stack," from the above post.

Celestial Tranquility (monk epic) will stack with "higher end haste spells".

The Monk Discipline 100 Fists (lvl 57) will stack with Item Haste AND Spell/Song Haste.

Melody/Composition of Ervaj and Battlecry/Warsong of the Vah Shir will stack with any ONE other Song OR Spell Haste and ONE Item Haste, reportedly allowing the haste cap to be broken.

I am on mith mar and used to get SCHW for 4-5 k I got hacked and lost all my gear. Tried to by another pair and they are up to 8-9 k now. I think every one is to frigging greedy! yes it has stats but Think about it how much would you pay for a item with same stats minus the haste?
Add that to aprox caust of fbss I dont get 9k
I feel 6k AT most

On Bertoxxulus, FBSS goes for 3k now, and this item still goes for the 5-7k it used to. Know why?
It goes in your hand slot. How many hand slot items do monks get? If you aren't using gem inlaid gauntlets, you're using planar gear or your epic, or maybe treant fists if you're a human. Haste is slightly less than an FBSS, sure, but there are a million different waist slot items for a monk (i.e. spider fur belt...what can you find comparable to that in the hand slot that isn't planar?).

ok, so i guess you can lay the whole arguement to waste by saying:

"it ALL depends on your particular case. A warrior has different needs than a monk, or shadowknight, and all have different opportunities/combos as per their class."

You know..I've been thinking..particularly with regards to monks

why would you pay 5K for a haste item that you're going to end up stop using as soon as you get your epic, when u can buy a FBSS for 3-4K, and it stacks with the celestial Tranquility...

Well, there are a few reasons:
1) SCHWs have a little bit more haste than FBSS.
2) FBSS has *zero* stats, not even ac.
3) Since the SCHWs are a little better, they are worth more than an FBSS. SCHW 5-6k, FBSS 3k (The Rathe)
4) When the monk gets his or her epic, the monk can sell the SCHWs toward a better haste item for a different slow (cloak, belt, ect.).

This is of course for a monk, hence the celestial tranquility effect on epic... I know my rogue's Ragebringer will not have that effect if and when I get it :-)
RE: a thought
# Jun 27 2002 at 9:43 AM Rating: Decent
OK, here is my guestion,
the description of Haste is as follows... "Increase Attack Speed for between 2% (L1) to 50% (L49)." With that said, can a item with haste as the effect have diffrent levels of haste? It seems to me its based on level of the person wearing the item and not the item itself. Can someone explain this to me? Thanks is advance...

#GegolianBadbain, Posted: Jul 04 2002 at 11:15 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You would think after all this **** fighting over if haste increases overall hits or lowers delay on weapons or whatever has been said, was done. You would think ppl would have learned something...

Gegolian you are just the kind of egotistical idiot that this game doesnt need. His question was a legitimate one, especially if he is relatively new to the game. A time you apparently forgot.

Yes, the consensus IS that the SCHW run around 22% but the question of whether an item CAN have haste that varies with your level is a valid one, certainly when someone who is new reads the posts and they say one thing and clicks on the link to the Haste effect and it seems to say something that doesnt exactly mesh.

Try being helpful for a change. Or at the very least dont post, something that will likely be very helpful.

Could someone tell me if the haste from 2 different items will stack with each other - for example, a SCHW and a Swiftclaw Sash?

Don't think so but I will test that out. I am always hearing different haste numbers in the auction channel so I decided to take the haste items that my mage can wear and test them out. SCHW, FBSS, and the Swiftclaw Sash. Mage can use them all and gets NO special attack double attack, dual wield..etc just straight swinging.

Ok I have finished with my own testing and I have come up with a slightly different version of things. Not sure why but I did it 3 times and it came up the same all three times. Level 54 mage so I know he gets maximum haste from each item. He has no specials on his 1HB so it is just 1 swing, dly, 1 swing..etc. First off the haste items did NOT stack. When the SCHW were equiped neither the FBSS or the Swiftclaw changed anything. Looks like it uses the fastest haste item you have equiped.

The final numbers that I came up with were
Swiftclaw Sash 16%
FBSS 21%
SCHW 25%

I know this goes against common lore but I don't see how it is wrong. Flame away if you want but try to explain how the original numbers came into being and if they have been checked recently.

Great, thanks for the feedback. BTW, if you define haste as the reduction in delay (which I do), my test on the Swiftclaw Sash matched yours exactly, 16%.

Couldn't run the stack test myself. Had to sell my Sash first to afford the SCHW:)

does haste make your flying kick pop faster too, or just allow hand hits to be faster?
RE: haste?
# May 28 2002 at 5:14 PM Rating: Decent
haste only allows you to hit with hands and weapons faster. though they should make our other attack skills pop faster with haste on.

Actually , haste does allow for your special kicks reuse time to shorten as does slow make the reuse time take longer . With slow you'll really notice a difference. And I know for Rogues , haste increases there backstab reuse time . I noticed that with my rogue when he wasnt able to use his hide skill at the same time as his backstab . I have a hotkey for hiding before I backstab and with out haste I can use hide at the same time , and with haste it takes hide a little longer to cycle.

Well, not sure why this is, but...

2 people with SoW, neither encumbered. 1 with FBSS and 1 without. The one with FBSS outran the one without (I had to Wolf form to keep up).

Not an agility issue, cause I have like 30 more agility.

So I think it affects overall speed, not just attacks.

Was the sow cast by the same level person? A sow cast by a level 50 person will be faster than a sow cast by a level 25 person.

Well on Rodcet Nife these are still 4.5-5k. I have been shopping for weeks for my monkey and I have had the opportunity to buy 4-5 times but always at around 5k. Sellers not interested in what web prices are and I couldn't get any of them to come down even 500pp. As one guy put it a 22% haste item WITH 10 AC and all those sv's. Comparable haste is the FBSS and it has NO AC or stats. I finally caved and paid the 5k. Cleric is gonna have to do some rezzin to make some cash now.
